  • java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/poi/hslf/HSLFSlideShow 
  • java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/jempbox/xmp/XMPMetadata


AEM 6.2 SP1 CFP9 or later


AEM 6.2 SP1 CFP9 updates Granite POI from version 2.0.6 to 2.0.22. The issue occurs because the class path changed in the new version of the bundle.


To resolve this issue, please upload the classloader from:
classloader = org.apache.poi.hslf.HSLFSlideShow.class.getClassLoader(); // com.adobe.granite::com.adobe.granite.poi::2.0.6

classloader = org.apache.poi.hslf.usermodel.HSLFSlideShow.class.getClassLoader(); // com.adobe.granite::com.adobe.granite.poi::2.0.22

(Apply the same for Jempbox)
