Extending the Multi Site Manager using the Experience Manager MSM API

You can use the Adobe Experience Manager Muli Site Manager (MSM) API to create a custom service that is invoked when you perform a MSM operation such as create a LiveCopy page. Multi Site Manager  enables you to easily manage multiple web sites that share common content. MSM lets you define relations between the sites so that content changes in one site are automatically replicated in other sites.

For example, web sites are often provided in multiple languages for international audiences. When the number of sites in the same language is low (three to five), a manual process for syncronizing content across sites is possible. However, as soon as the number of sites grows or when multiple languages are involved, it becomes more efficient to automate the process.

A service that works with Experience Manager MSM functionality is implemented as an OSGi bundle and uses APIs located in the  com.day.cq.wcm.api package.

Note: For information about MSM functionality, see Multi-Site Management.

The main MSM API objects interact as follows:

Blueprint
A Blueprint defines the pages from which a live copy can inherit content. The use of a blueprint is optional but is required to push modifications to live copies that are inheriting from this blueprint or to define the default rollout configuration for the live copy that is in relation with the blueprint.

LiveCopy
A LiveCopy is the configuration of the relationship (LiveRelationship) between a page and its blueprint page. Use the LiveCopy class to access to the path of the page, the path of the blueprint page, the Rollout Configs, and whether child pages are also included in the LiveCopy.

LiveRelationship
The LiveRelationship represents the relationship between a resource and a blueprint. LiveRelationship objects provide access to the Rollout Configs, LiveCopy, and LiveStatus objects of the relationship. It also provides access to the paths of the target and source pages.

For example, a Live Copy is created in /content/copy from the blueprint at /content/geometrixx. The resources /content/geometrixx/en/jcr:content and /content/copy/en/jcr:content form a relationship.

LiveStatus
LiveStatus objects provide access to the runtime status of a LiveRelationship. Use to query the synchronization status of a Live Copy.

LiveAction
A LiveAction is an action that is executed on each resource that is involved in the rollout.
LiveActionFactory
Creates LiveAction objects given a LiveAction configuration. Configurations are stored as resources in the repository.

Creating an Adobe Experience Manager RSS component using JQuery

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) component that is able to retrieve data from a RSS feed and display data in the component's view. A RSS uses standard web feed styles to publish data such as:

  • blog entries
  • news headlines
  • audio
  • video

When developing a custom AEM component, you can select a third-party library and use that library within AEM. This is a benefit of developing an AEM component as it offers you better flexiblity to address your business requirements. In this use case, the following third-party library is used:

The following illustration shows the component created in this development article.

NOTE: To learn how to develop an AEM Headline component (another example of displaying RSS type data), see http://scottsdigitalcommunity.blogspot.com/2016/03/creating-aem-headline-component.html

Creating Adobe Experience Manager Packages using a Java API

You can dynamically create an Adobe Experience Manager package by using a Java API. That is, you can create an OSGi bundle that contains code that builds an AEM package. Building a package using code lets build a package without having an AEM administrator build a package manually, For example, some use cases are to build packages every week automatically. Using the Java API, you can perform this use case, as shown in the following illustration.


This AEM client invokes a sling servlet that dynamically builds an AEM package. To read this AEM developer article, click https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/dynamic_aem_packages.html.

Adding Google reCAPTCHA to an AEM web site

You can use Google reCAPTCHA  to your AEM site to protect your website from automated script attacks while letting real users pass through with ease. The reCAPTCHA library is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse. By using reCAPTCHA, you can improve the security of your AEM site.



As shown in the previous illustration, when using reCAPTCHA, a user is prompted to enter a code into an AEM page. If the code is valid, a message appears.  If the user enters an invalid code, a message appears letting the user know an invalid code was entered.
