Can not get a simple bootstrap modal to work

I am trying to get a simple bootstrap's modal sample to work, I follow this document which says " You can activate modals on your page easily without having to write a single line of javascript. Just give an element a data-controls-modal attribute which corresponds to a modal element id, ...", but I have done whatever I could and had a huge amount of research still can not get this simple modal to work.

<div class="modal" id="myModal">
<div class="modal-header">
<button class="close" data-dismiss="modal">×</button>
<h3>Modal header</h3>
<div class="modal-body">
<p>One fine body…</p>
<div class="modal-footer">
<a href="#" class="btn">Close</a>
<a href="#" class="btn btn-primary">Save changes</a>

I have either this:

<a class="btn" data-controls-modal="myModal">Launch Modal</a>

or this:

<a class="btn" data-toggle="modal" href="#myModal" >Launch Modal</a>

button to activate the modal, I have loaded the bootstrap-modal.js on the page as well. Unless I added a javascript line to handle the "Launch Modal" click event, when I click on "Launch Modal", nothing happens at all, are there anything that I have missed?


I finally found this solution from "Sven" and solved the problem. what I did was I included "bootstrap.min.js" with:

<script src="bootstrap.min.js"/>

instead of:

<script src="bootstrap.min.js"></script>

and it fixed the problem which looked really odd. can anyone explain why?
