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.

Persisting Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 JCR data using a Custom Form Action

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 application that persists application data in the Java Content Repository (JCR). When storing data within the JCR, each record can be saved as a separate node. A node can contain properties that store data values. To store data in Nodes, you can use the Node API.

For example, assume that your Experience Manager application to store your organization’s employee data. Each node can represent a different employee. In this article, a basic form is built by using Experience Manager Form components.

The following illustration shows employee nodes. Each time the form is submitted, a new node is created.


Each node contains properties that store employee details, such as the name value.


The following video shows this use case.

Moving Digital Assets using Adobe Experience Manager Workflows

When working with Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 digital assets, you can use workflows to achieve business requirements. Not all business requirements can be achieved by using out of the box Experience Manager components. To achieve some requirements, you need to build custom workflows. In some cases, you need to build custom workflow steps by using the Experience Manager Workflow API.

For example, consider a business requirement where a digital asset has to be archived based on an asset property. That is, you want to place an asset into a archive folder if its archive property is true. Using out of the box workflow steps, you cannot achieve this use case. To achieve this requirement, you need to build a custom workflow step that moves the asset to a folder under /content/dam.

The following video shows the workflow model that moves a digital asset to the archive folder and then deletes it.
