Currently it is not possible to include external JS files using includeJS (since it makes use of t3lib_TStemplate::getFileName).

Tt's possible to include external script via headerData. But headerData isnt a good choice concerning order and duplicate insertion.

I'll second that request. Would be nice for including code hosted by Google e.g.

Patch resolving this limitation (is it a bug?) will be uploaded shortly.
The patch renames the original "getFileName" and creates a new "getFileName" that acts as a wrapper for the original one:

/** * Wrapper for _getFilename (original "getFileName" renamed) that extends the original functionality in two ways: * 1. external resources can be included by specifying a url (e.g. http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/prototype/ * 2. local resources can include a query part (e.g. fileadmin/lib.js?version=1) * * If the parameter is an absolute url (starting with a protocol specification (e.g. "http://") or a shash ("/")) it will be returned unaltered. * Otherwise, the parameter value will be split into a url and an optional query part (?...), and _getFileName will be called with url as parameter. * If the result of this call is non-empty the query part (if any) will be appended to form the final result. * * @param string Url or Typoscript "resource" data type value. * @return string Url (possibly expanded from Typoscript resource) * @see _getFileName()
public function getFileName($fileFromSetup) { ... }

Actually this is now possible in TYPO3 4.3. Please try and confirm that this bug can be closed. Thanks.

(see the updated TSref for property includeJS and look at sub-property "external")
