load is available always - regardless of -scripting option. If you are 
running under security manager, your app's permissions to resolve/read a 
URL will apply. Also, make sure that you can reach beyond your proxy, if 

i.e., you can download that .js file from your Java code at all, you 
should be able to use 'load' to download and execute that script.
