How do I include a web resource

Hi All,


All I want to do is include an external javascript file how hard can that be you ask? well its turning into a nightmare, i have a web resource from an example plugin ive found:


<web-resource key="requestedfields-resources" name="Request custom fields Web Resources">
<resource type="download" name="requestedfields.css"
<resource type="download" name="requestedfields.js"
<resource type="download" name="images/" location="/ru/andreymarkelov/atlas/plugins/requestedfiedls/images/"/>


and i want to include the java script file in a velocity template, so i can call a function:

function doSomething()
alert('hello world')


thats it, thats all i want to do, I've seen people saying use something like this:




but i dont know what im supposed to pass to requireResource or where I'm meant to put this in my velocity template, can someone please help before I lose my mind and potentially go postal.


Thanks :)
