Real Answer, first version of this answer is an alternative solution, see comments for clarification

Set the Deployment Type to Class Resource for the module. See here for an example.

Alternative Answer:

You could have javascript files live in the LAYOUTS folder if possible, they'll be the most accessible there.

Add a mapped folder for LAYOUTS, add in a folder for the name of your project if you want (if it doesn't already do so) and then access it via /_layouts/YourProjectName/file.js

  • As per the requirement i want the JavaScript files to be in Virtual Directories - Resources folder only. Jun 14, 2011 at 11:37
  • So, to clarify, you need to add class resources in visual studio 2010? If so, here's how to set the deployment type of a module in VS2010 to ClassResource: blog.pentalogic.net/2010/09/…
