Faceless component not calling init()

I have a UIComponent which has a dependency of a faceless Component.

Main component metadata:"MYAPP.Component");


    sap.ui.core.UIComponent.extend("MYAPP.Component", {

      metadata: {

        dependencies: {

          libs: [],

          components: [



        }, etc

The app indicates it has reached the faceless component, since if I make some deliberate syntax errors I do get the error messages when loading the webpage. I can also get a console.log("test") to print out from outside the sap.ui.core.Component.extend() code."Component2.Component");


    console.log("outside test"); //this prints


    sap.ui.core.Component.extend("Component2.Component", {

      metadata: {



      init: function(){

        sap.ui.core.Component.prototype.init.apply(this, arguments);

        console.log("component2 init test"); //this doesn't print




My folder structure:


      /Component2               //faceless component folder


      /view                     //views and controllers folder

      Component.js              //main component
