Jest: cannot find module required inside module to be tested (relative path)

I have this component:

import React from 'react';
import VideoTag from './VideoTag';
import JWPlayer from './JWPlayer';

class VideoWrapper extends React.Component {
//... component code

That based on some logic renders another component inside ( VideoTag or JWPlayer) but when I try to test it in a jest file i get the error:

Cannot find module './VideoTag'

The three coponents are in the same directory that's why it actually works when I transpile it and see it in action in a browser but looks like Jest is having problems resolving those relative paths, this is the jest file:


import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
TestUtils from 'react-addons-test-utils';

import VideoWrapper from '../src/shared/components/Video/VideoWrapper.jsx';

describe('VideoWrapper tests', () => {
it('Render JWPlayer', () => {

let vWrapper = TestUtils.renderIntoDocument(
< VideoWrapper model={model} />


The error is at line:

import VideoWrapper from '../src/shared/components/Video/VideoWrapper.jsx';

How do I tell jest how to handle relative paths?

The problem were not the paths, It was looking for modules only with .js extension, it worked after adding the .jsx in the jest configuration:
