How to get Attachment in alfresco?

I did something like this.

public void notify(DelegateTask delegateTask) {

List <Attachment> at = new ArrayList<Attachment>();

String processInstanceId = delegateTask.getProcessInstanceId();

at = delegateTask.getExecution().getEngineServices().getTaskService().getProcessInstanceAttachments(processInstanceId);


However it didn't work

If you are using Activiti Enterprise you will need to use the relatedContentService.

Details of how to use this service can be found in the following forum post:

How do you access an uploaded file in a downstream service task?

It does appear you participated in this post, as far as I can tell the answer to your question can be found in the code snippet below:

public void execute(DelegateExecution execution) {
    try {
      String fileVariableName = "myfile"; // Id of 'upload file field' from form in previous User Task
      Class<?> theClass = Class.forName("com.activiti.conf.ApplicationConfiguration");
      AnnotationConfigApplicationContext applicationContext = new AnnotationConfigApplicationContext(theClass);
      RelatedContentService relatedContentService = applicationContext.getBean(RelatedContentService.class);
      List<RelatedContent> contentList = relatedContentService.getFieldContentForProcessInstance(
          execution.getProcessInstanceId(), fileVariableName, 1, 0).getContent();
    } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
