The aspect is invalid error message

Question asked by konsultex on Mar 16, 2009
Latest reply on Sep 12, 2011 by patil
I'm working with Alfresco Labs 3.0 Stable with Oracle on Windows. I have custom aspects in version 2.1 which are working fine but this particular one which is really very simple is not working. I configured the files and restarted Alfresco. I created a rule (my aspect appears in the aspect list) but it does not work when Alfresco tries to apply it to an incoming document. I'm probably missing something very obvious. I wonder if anybody has a pointer about what can be wrong with these configuration files?

a) customModel.xml

It just says that the aspect is invalid.

I enabled this line in log4j.properties but it didn't help:
