OGG - Class not found: "com.company.kafka.CustomProducerRecord"

In the documentation for the current release of Oracle GoldenGate for Big Data ( there's a helpful sample configuration, which isn't so helpful ...

gg.handler.kafkahandler.ProducerRecordClass = com.company.kafka.CustomProducerRecord  

This value for gg.handler.kafkahandler.ProducerRecordClass will cause a failure when you start the replicat:

Class not found: "com.company.kafka.CustomProducerRecord"

If you comment this configuration item out, it'll use the default (oracle.goldengate.handler.kafka.DefaultProducerRecord) and work swimingly!
