Access uploaded content in a ServiceTask?

Hi all,


I need some advice because I'm messing around with a requirement without getting any solution. All I wanna do is to access some previous uploaded files (in a User Task, from the upload form field) in a downstream ServiceTask. For me it looks like that the example behind the following link is the way to go:… 

I assume I can get the content by injecting (or "Autowireing") the RelatedContentService (?):

RelatedContentService relatedContentService;

The issue I get is already right after copy&paste the demo code from the above link to my project. The project has been created with the org.alfresco.maven.archetype:activiti-jar-archetype (see attached screenshot).

But the following packages can not be resolved (see attached screenshot):

import com.activiti.extension.domain.runtime.RelatedContent;

Which dependencies are missing here? If I double check at for RelatedContent, it only refers to a class within a org.activiti package. Even the ContentObject seems to be only available in org.activiti group of the content-storage-api artifact. However, if I use the classes from the org.activiti package instead, the startup of the application server crashes with the following:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Failed to introspect bean class [com.activiti.extension.bean.MyTestClass] for persistence metadata: could not find class that it depends on
        ... 28 more
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Lorg/activiti/app/service/runtime/RelatedContentService;


Can anyone help me with that issue, please? Maybe the approach is wrong? Again, what I need is, just to get the uploaded content from a previous UserTask in a ServiceTask.
