Querying and Persisting Adobe AEM data into MySQL

You can create an Adobe CQ web application that performs database operations on a relational database. In this development article, the CQ web application queries and updates a MySQL database. That is, a user can create a new customer record that is stored in the Customer table. Likewise, a user can view all Customer records, as shown in the following illustration.

The Java JDBC API is used within an OSGi bundle that queries customer data based on three options:

1 - All customers (both active and past customers are displayed as shown in the previous illustration).
2 - Active customers (only active customers are displayed).
3 - Past customers (only past customers are displayed).

This development article walks you through creating an AEM application that queries data from MySQL and displays the data in client web page. To read this development article, click:
