[yjavac] 1. ERROR cannot be resolved to a type in Hybris?

Extensions can have dependencies on one another. While working with Hybris you come across a scenario, where you want to import a class from the different extension. The build only works if the required extension is available.
Ensure the below steps to works it smoothly.

Dependencies to Non-Platform(not located in /platform/ext) Extension

  • The required extension should be there in localextensions.xml
  • Add the required extension in extensioninfo.xml (e.g <requires-extension name="hmc"/>) of the dependent extension
  • In your eclipse(IDE), add required extension in build path of the dependent extension to resolve IDE dependecy.
    Note: Adding required extension in IDE build path won't resolve extension dependency of your platform. It only resolved by extensioninfo.xml
  • Rebuild the system (ant clean all)

Dependencies to Platform Extension

By default, all extensions have the dependency on Platform extension(located at /platform/ext). Therefore, you do not required to specify requires-extension for the Platform extensions in extensioninfo.xml file.
