How can I include a JavaScript function within a JSP page?

Simon Brown

Just include your JavaScript code as you would normally when building HTML pages. You can either embed the JavaScript directly between <script> ... </script> tags, or place it in an external file and specify its location using : <pre><script src="myJavaScript.js"></pre>

As you are using JSPs, there are other mechanisms available to you such as using a JSP include to insert the JavaScript code, or even generating the JavaScript dynamically within your JSP.
