custom-metadata-extrators-context.xml java class not found error
We have installed Alfresco Content Services 7.0.1 from the .zip-file and have started deploying our extensions from version 5.2.1 to our new installation. We are facing problems with the extension "custom-metadata-extrators-context.xml". To analyze our problem we have switched to the custom-metadata-extrators-context.xml.sample file provided with the installer and deployed this file. Nevertheless we get still numerous class not found exceptions. The exact error message is:
nested exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.alfresco.repo.content.metadata.OpenDocumentMetadataExtracter
The class you are looking for is no longer available with repository app and moved to transformation service app, see above doc link. So typically you don't need to configure anything with spring context file except for xml metadata extractor. What you see in distribution zip may be not removed and it should be removed to avoid any confusion and also the name of class is wrong in the sample pertaining to acs7.
