Turn Off Compression and Cache

By default, the JavaScript files (ZK packages) will be compressed and cached, which is hard to step in and debug. You could turn off the compression and the cache of JavaScript files by specifying the following in WEB-INF/zk.xml:

<client-config>
    <debug-js>true</debug-js>
</client-config>
<library-property>
    <name>org.zkoss.web.classWebResource.cache</name>
    <value>false</value>
</library-property>
<library-property>
    <name>org.zkoss.zk.WPD.cache</name>
    <value>false</value>
</library-property>

Get ZK and add-on Component Version

Sometimes, you need to get the product version at runtime for debugging. Please run the following JavaScript statements in your browser's console:

zk.version;
zk.getVersion('gmaps');
zk.getVersion('zss');
zk.getVersion('ckez');
zk.getVersion('chart');
