We are currently having application in dxa-2.2 java and we are trying to separate out common code out of it as separate dxa module.

It is not getting registered on viewEntryMap

here is a initializer code

public class TestInitializer {

            @RegisteredViewModel(viewName = "Test", modelClass = Test.class),
            @RegisteredViewModel(viewName = "Test", modelClass = RegionModelImpl.class)
    @ModuleInfo(name = "Test module", areaName = "Test", description = "Test module")
    public static class TestModuleInitializer extends AbstractModuleInitializer {
        protected String getAreaName() {
            return "Test";

when I am trying to debug, I can not find this on

final RegisteredViewModels views = getClass().getAnnotation(RegisteredViewModels.class);

of class AbstractModuleInitializer

could you please suggest how to load this module into another dxa webapp which is having different module

Issue was fixed when I changed the namespace to com.sdl.dxa.modules from com.example.dxa.modules.test in the module.

now able to load entities from custom module as well.

  • Interesting, it should not be needed to use the com.sdl.dxa.modules package name for custom Modules, but it's good to know that this is a way to make it work. Oct 18, 2021 at 13:04
  • yes. In java it's expected
