Building Experience Manager 6.5 Components using Granite/Coral Resource Types

When creating components for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.5, you use Granite/Coral resource types. These resource types are used in the component’s dialog. That is, the UI that makes up the dialog fields and lets an author enter information used by the AEM component.

Many AEM Developers are familiar with Classic UI xtypes based widgets such as text fields, path fields, drop-down fields, and so on. However, when it comes to working with the Touch UI, xtypes are not used. Instead, resource types are used to build Touch UI component dialogs. This article helps you become familiar with working with Granite/Coral resource types that can be applied in your day to day component development work.

This article teaches you how to build Experience Manager 6.5 components by using Granite/Coral data types such as:



  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textarea
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/select
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/radiogroup
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield
The following illustration shows an AEM Component that uses these resource types.

Creating an Experience Manager 6.4 YouTube Component

Displaying video content within a web site is a typical requirement for Experience Manager 6.4 authors. Furthermore, the video may not be located within the AEM DAM, but rather a YouTube video. To address this requirement, you can create a custom component that can display a YouTube video.

In addition, you can develop the component to retrieve information about the video and display the information within the component, as shown in the following illustration. The component developed in this article is built using HTL, which helps you to separate your design from your application logic. For more information, see Introduction to the HTML Template Language.
