public class ListImpl extends com.adobe.cq.wcm.core.components.internal.models.v1.ListImpl implements List

Hi @sreenu539,

All models located under internal package are not exported by core components bundles. This means you cannot use them directly, this is done by design.

The proper way to extend Core Components model is to use delegation pattern. Here you can find some information with examples:

@Model(adaptables = SlingHttpServletRequest.class,
       adapters = List.class,
       resourceType = "myproject/components/list")
public class ListImpl implements List {

    @Self 
    @Via(type = ResourceSuperType.class)
    private List list;

    /** 
    * using original implementation
    */
    @Override 
    public String getDateFormatString() {
        // place for custom implementation that will be different comparing to orignal one
    }


    /** 
    * using original implementation
    */
    @Override
    public boolean linkItems() {
        // simply run method from Core Components List implementation
        return list.linkItems();
    }

    // place for other methods from List interface
}
