Hi prasadraavi,

I don't know if you still need this, but I'll put it here in case anyone else has this issue. In the .cto file, you need to have the line "namespace org.acme.landregistry". The same would need to be done with any other cto file by having namespace {your .cto file here} without the .cto attached.

I'm not sure if this is a universal solution, but it's the one that worked for me.
