I have an existing component that has clientlib with category "abc" (suppose). I added a validation for a dialog field and created this clientlib outside the folder of my component and the named the category as "xyz".
I have added xyz in the category as well as the dependency of my component clientlib (abc), but still my js files doesn't load. Whereas, in the dialog of my component if I used 'granite include-clientlib' node and add category xyz in that node, then my js loads.
@Shaheena_Sheikh What I understood from your requirement is that , you have to load some JS specifically for authoring dialog alone. If that is the case I think the best way to do so is to use the extraClientLibs property in the dialog node
