Getting java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.adobe.aemfd.docmanager.source.DocumentSourceHandler


Level 1

Hi All,

While trying testing the addSignatureField from link below:

Adobe Experience Manager Help | Using AEM Document Services Programmatically

I am getting java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.adobe.aemfd.docmanager.source.DocumentSourceHandler.

Can you please advise which jar contain DocumentSourceHandler? why it is not included?

Testing with AEM 6.2 jar



Thanks and regards

You need to add Adobe AEMDS Core Document Manager Support (adobe-aemds-core-docmanager) bundle in classpath or you can add it dependency. This bundle is present in AEM. It will resolve DocumentSourceHandler class

Adding this as a dependency does not work as neither the adobe public repository nor the maven repository contains this jar.
