So, there are a couple of problems here.

1 Because your javascript file needs jQuery, that must be loaded before your javascript file: line 8 and 9 of your html file need to be switched. There was a console error screaming about this. Learn to read your console, CTRL-SHFT-J or something similar.

2 There is no div element with an id called “demo” so your statement:

 $("#demo").html("Here is the message");

has nothing to target. Add the line:

<div id="demo"></div>

in your HTML wherever you want that to go.

3 OK, this isn’t the end of the world, but you’ve chosen some rather unfortunate names for your javascript files, javascript.js and jsx.js. The first is redundant and the second, well there is hybrid language in React called jsx. Usual names for a javascript file are index.js, main.js, or if you have more than one js file, something more descriptive.

Thanks man for the solution. I didn’t know that you need to load jQuery first and also thanks for the naming tips.
