Clean out old cached workflow models

Question asked by acgrama on Jun 4, 2014
After successfully deploying a custom workflow, I deleted the workflow definition, context and model files from alfresco_4.2.a\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco\extension. I have also cleaned out the corresponding GUI definition from alfresco_4.2.a\tomcat\webapps\share\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\web-extension\share-config-custom.xml.

However, when I start Alfresco, not even the standard workflows are available in the workflow selection list, and in the log I see the following error:


10:28:26,385 ERROR (org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.AbstractRuntime)

I have searched, and the "epes-bc2wf" namespace is not defined anywhere except in alfresco_4.2.a\alf_data\postgresql\base\18277\18278. Is this some sort of caching mechanism in Alfresco? If yes, how can I clean out the old definitions?
