Add searcher to custom field

Hey

I have written a custom field and now i wan't to add a searcher for it.
I have already tried, with no luck. My atlassian-plugin.xml looks like this:

  <customfield-type name="Release Date" i18n-name-key="release-date.name" key="release-date" class="com.scalepoint.jira.plugin.jira.customfields.ReleaseDate">
    <description key="release-date.description">Auto populated field, displaying the expected release date</description>
    <resource name="view" type="velocity" location="/templates/customfields/release-date/view-release-date.vm"/>
  </customfield-type>
 
  <customfield-searcher name="Date Range Searcher" key="releasedate-searcher" class="com.scalepoint.jira.plugin.jira.searcher.ReleaseDateSearcher">
    <description>Searcher for Release date field</description>
    <resource type="velocity" name="search" location="templates/customfields/searcher/edit.vm"/>
    <resource type="velocity" name="view" location="templates/customfields/searcher/view.vm"/>
    <valid-customfield-type package="com.scalepoint.jira.plugin.jira.customfields" key="release-date"/>
</customfield-searcher>

This should do the trick. The searcher is just a extended DateRangeSearcher class, with no aditional code.The 2 resourches are also just the default templates taken from WEB-INF\classes\templates

But it dosen't work. Can anyone see what im doing wrong?

Is this the plugin key? Use the plugin key and not the package of the Java class. If you using it right, are you seeing any error in the logs when the plugin is loaded?

com.scalepoint.jira.plugin.jira.customfields
