Use context path. ex: src="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/WEB-INF/files/myjs.js"

Move the javascript file outside of WEB-INF, files inside WEB-INF are not accessible by URL (such as the script tag).

From the servlet 2.5 spec

A special directory exists within the application hierarchy named “WEB-INF”.
This directory contains all things related to the application that aren’t in the
document root of the application. The WEB-INF node is not part of the public
document tree of the application. No file contained in the WEB-INF directory may
be served directly to a client by the container.
However, the contents of the WEBINF
directory are visible to servlet code using the getResource and getResource-
AsStream method calls on the ServletContext, and may be exposed using the
RequestDispatcher calls.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
