I have created a series of custom components created as a maven project.

I have a series of javascript libraries that I want available to everything in this project. Currently I have them defined in the lang-addon.xml as follows:


        <zk-version>7.0.1</zk-version><!-- or later -->

    <!-- 1. Path to javascript for macro components and shared javascript libraries -->
    <javascript src="~./test/ui/component/js/velocity.min.js"/>
    <javascript src="~./test/ui/component/js/velocity.ui.min.js"/>


This is working, however to cater for caching issues (prevent users needing to refresh if a change is made to these libraries) I would like to define the external javascript libraries in their own package (WPD) like widgets.

According to the documentation this should be possible. I have defined the package zk.wpd file as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<package name="test.ui.js.libraries">
    <script src="velocity.min.js"/>
    <script src="velocity.ui.min.js"/>

Then in the lang-addon.xml I have define the javascript package and a version number:

<javascript-module name="test.ui.js.libraries" version="1.1.0"/>
<javascript package="test.ui.js.libraries"/>

Unfortunately the js libraries are not loading and I get a component not found error when I load the page.
