Creating Adobe CQ Feed Components that display Twitter data


You can create a custom Adobe CQ data feed component that retrieves external data and displays the data within  a CQ web page. For example, a CQ component can retrieve data from an RSS feed to let your users view recent forum data. Likewise, a CQ component can retrieve data from a social site like Twitter to keep your users updated with the latest social data, as shown here.

This development article guides you through how to build a custom CQ twitter feed component and add it to the CQ sidekick.

Querying Adobe Experience Manager Data using the JCR API

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) application that queries data located in the AEM Java Content Repository (JCR). To query data, you use a javax.jcr.query.Query instance that belongs to the JCR Query API. This API supports both searching and querying operations. For example, assume that your AEM application tracks your organization’s customers. You can query the JCR to obtain a customer result set in which a digital marketer is interested.
The following illustration shows customer data displayed within an AEM application.


This data is retrieved from the AEM JCR and displayed within a data grid control located in a client web page. The JCR Query API is used within an OSGi bundle that returns a result set to the client. This development article guides you through creating an AEM application that queries data from the JCR and displays the data in client web page. To view this development article, click here:
