I want to access my property bag using Javascript from a

          function getWebProperty() {

        var ctx = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
        var web = ctx.get_site().get_rootweb();
        this.props =  web.get_allProperties();
        this.props.set_item('aProperty', 'it worked!');

        ctx.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, gotProperty), Function.createDelegate(this, failedGettingProperty));

    function gotProperty() {

    function failedGettingProperty() {

But I am getting an error saying " Object has no method 'get_rootweb'. I imagine this is because I haven't registered the sp.js library. If thats the problem, how would I register the sp.js library inside my elements.xml file? (Its all contained inside a element.
