Hi guys, I'm relatively new to javascript, so this may be an easy answer.
I am using the Google Places & Maps API's to create a javascript based webpage.

All I need to know, is if it is possible to reference an external library (e.g. the places library from a javacript file as opposed to in the html page in script tags)?

The google documentation (http://code.google.com/apis/maps/doc...pt/places.html) recommends to put the reference in a script tag in the webpage like so:
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?libraries=places&sensor=true_or_false"></script>
but seeing as all my workings are in an external javascript file (mapstuff.js) which my .jsp references, how do i reference the Google library from my mapstuff.js?

Thanks in advance,
