How to use JavaScript in Velocity file from Webwork1 module?

I have an Atlassian SDK webwork1 module with its view:

<webwork1 key="ai-config" name="AI Config" i18n-name-key=""> 
<description key="ai-config.description">The AI Config Plugin</description>
<action name="com.softgile.jira.webwork.AIConfigAction" alias="AIConfigAction">
<view name="success">/templates/ai-config/success.vm</view>

In the view I have several forms:

<form class="aui" id="configForm" method="post" action="AIConfigAction!saveIp.jspa">



<form class="aui" id="serviceName" method="post" action="AIConfigAction!saveService.jspa">



Also I have a button there, which is controlled with JS:

<div class="field-group">
<label for="authenticate">
<span class="aui-icon aui-icon-large aui-iconfont-app-access">Insert meaningful text here for accessibility</span>
<div class="buttons">
<button class="aui-button aui-button-primary" id="authenticate">Authenticate</button>

In JS file I have something like this:


AJS.$(document).on('click', '#authenticate', function(e) {


Both forms work okay, and JS works when I click the button. But JS stops working when I submit one of the forms, it works only before submitting forms. I see that URL is changing from AIConfigAction.jspa to AIConfigAction!saveService.jspa and in that case JS not working. How can I make JS work?

I have found the solution myself. So, the problem in my case was that I was including web-resources  inside doExecute() method of the Webwork. That is why after calling other methods like doSave() web-resources stopped working. 

Solution - move web-resources inclusion to Webwork constructor:

public AIConfigAction(WebResourceManager webResourceManager) {
