    JavaScript issues

    I am trying to build a portlet to display an existing web 2.0 application that uses ajax/javascript technology quite extensively. My code for the portlet (view.jsp) is something like this:

    <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/portlet_2_0" prefix="portlet" %>
    <portlet:defineObjects />
    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript" src="http://localhost:8900/myapp/jsapi"></script>
    <h1>Simple Viewer</h1>
    <div id="myDivContainer" style="border-width: 1px; border-style: solid;"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">

    I notice the code in the "script" tag does not even get invoked. Is there something wrong the way I am invoking javascript?
    I am using liferay-portal-5.2.3
    Appreciate all your help.

    language = "Javascript" is long obsolete and redundant, but I don't think it is actually damaging. Perhaps your script needs to be at the end, right ahead of the </body> tag if it references code which has not yet been rendered.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
