I have the below findFolder method, when I pass the path I am not able to find the folder. Please can you let me know what the path should be or what is incorrect below.


I have a folder at the path specified.




FindFolder method

public static Folder findFolder(@NotNull Session session, @NotNull String path) throws FolderNotFoundException{
    CmisObject obj = session.getObjectByPath(path);
    if(obj instanceof Folder){
        return (Folder)obj;
        throw new FolderNotFoundException("The path " + path + " does not return reference to a folder");


Test class

String user = "admin";
String pwd = "admin";
String serviceUrl = "http://localhost:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/browser";
Session session = SessionManager.getInstance().createSession(new SessionContext(user, pwd, serviceUrl));
try {
    Folder folder = FolderService.findFolder(session, "/app:company_home/st:sites/cm:testsite/cm:documentLibrary/cm:Contracts");
} catch (FolderNotFoundException e) {
