      In Rice 1.x, DTOConverter would attempt to lookup a workflow attribute definition first by class name and then by attribute name. In Rice 2.x, it only looks up by attribute name. This breaks attribute lookups, especially while running in remote applications.

      Rice 1.x

              // get the rule attribute so we can get's it's message antity and not blow up if it's remote
              RuleAttribute ruleAttribute = KEWServiceLocator.getRuleAttributeService().findByClassName(definitionVO.getAttributeName());
              if (ruleAttribute == null) {
                  ruleAttribute = KEWServiceLocator.getRuleAttributeService().findByName(definitionVO.getAttributeName());
              if (ruleAttribute == null) {
                  throw new WorkflowRuntimeException("Attribute " + definitionVO.getAttributeName() + " not found");

      Rice 2.x

      ExtensionDefinition extensionDefinition = KewApiServiceLocator.getExtensionRepositoryService().getExtensionByName(definition.getAttributeName());
              if (extensionDefinition == null) {
                  throw new WorkflowRuntimeException("Extension " + definition.getAttributeName() + " not found");
