I'm not sure what role JavaScript plays, but I know for certain that there are other Locator techniques that can be used. They are, by.classname(), by.cssSelector(), by.xpath(), etc. Even if the is not present, one of these will definately be present. Do let me know if that's the case.

If button does not have id, you can write locator based on other locators strategies. 

For example here i am using xpath locator then you need to click button by using Java Script executor in following way...

JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;//create instance of javascript executor to do actions

WebElement nextButton = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//span[contains(text(),'Next')]"));

js.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", nextButton);
