Hi Paulo

You seem to be having trouble finding the AttributeDescriptor object.

Here I see your file contains no dependencies for the objectstore project:


Compared with the InterMine file which has a dependency on the Model 
project, where the "AttributeDescriptor" class lives.


It would make sense that you are having issues if your dependencies are 
wrong. Do you know how this might have happened? Why your file is different?

This change was done in April 2014 so it was part of InterMine 1.4.

I assume you are using InterMine 1.4? Maybe you had a merging problem? 
Or need to do a clean? Can you look at the project properties file for 
the objectstore project (the project that is generating the error 
below), and confirm it does depend on the model project?

Let me know what you find!
