How to require "dataSaver" class in init.lua?

Hi guys!

I have a question about this class: http://appcodingeasy.com/Gideros-Mobile/Save-and-load-data-module-for-Gideros-Mobile
How can I require "dataSaver" inside 'init.lua'?
I'm doing slight mistake somewhere:

If I write this code, it works on Gideros Android Player, but doesn't work on packaged apk:

Release apk gets crached and writes that there's no "classes/dataSaver.lua" file.
com.giderosmobile.android.player.LuaException: init.lua:55: module 'classes/dataSaver' not found:
	no field package.preload['classes/dataSaver']
	no file './classes/dataSaver.lua'
	no file './classes/dataSaver/init.lua'
	no file './_LuaPlugins_/classes/dataSaver.lua'
	no file './_LuaPlugins_/classes/dataSaver/init.lua'
	no file '/usr/local/share/lua/5.1/classes/dataSaver.lua'
	no file '/usr/local/share/lua/5.1/classes/dataSaver/init.lua'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/classes/dataSaver.lua'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/classes/dataSaver/init.lua'
	no file './classes/dataSaver.so'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/classes/dataSaver.so'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/loadall.so'
stack traceback:
	init.lua:55: in main chunk
	(luac): in main chunk
	at LUA.MAIN_CHUNK(init.lua:55)
	at LUA.MAIN_CHUNK(luac:1234)
But this file is there. And "JSON" plugin is included in my project's settings.

Also I've tried to edit "code dependencies" of init.lua, it still can't find "classes/dataSaver.lua"

    you must mark every "require"'ed lua file is 'exclude from execution' in gideros studio, otherwise all lua files are merged together into a single main.lua file
