Creating gallery components that display digital assets stored in the CQ DAM


You can create an interactive gallery component that lets your AEM users engage with your Adobe CQ web site by viewing and clicking on images. When a user clicks on a thumbnail version of an image, a larger view of the image appears. In this workflow, the component retrieves images from the Adobe CQ Digital Asset Management (DAM) repository.

 The CQ DAM is a digital asset management tool that is fully integrated with the CQ platform and enables your enterprise to share and distribute digital assets. Users across an organization can manage, store, and access images, videos, documents, audio clips, and rich media such as Flash files for use on the web, in print, and for digital distribution. For more information, see CQ Digital Asset Management.

Assume, for example, that you are developing an Adobe CQ visual gallery component for a travel company interested in creating an online digital marketing campaign. The component lets visitors to the web site obtain an engaging experience by viewing different cruise images.

Notice that this CQ image component lets users scroll through cruise images. Once selected, the image populates the background of the CQ page. Furthermore, users can browse different cruise categories. This development article guides you through how to build this CQ visual component. To read this development article, click:

Submitting Mobile Form Data to Adobe CQ

You can create an Adobe CQ mobile form using JQuery Mobile API. When a mobile user fills in the form and clicks the submit button, form data is submitted to Adobe CQ. You can develop an OSGi bundle operation to process the submitted form data to meet your business requirements. For example, consider the following CQ mobile insurance claim form.

When a mobile user fills in this CQ mobile claim form and submits the data, an OSGi bundle processes the data by persisting it in the Adobe JCR. A claim number is generated on the server and returned to the mobile device and displayed in the first field (see the previous illustration).

This development article guides you through creating a mobile form using the JQuery Mobile API and an OSGi bundle that handles the form submission. To read this development article, click:

NOTE: For information about how to use a Sling Post Servlet to submit mobile data to the Adobe JCR as opposed to using an OSGi bundle as discussed in this article, see http://scottsdigitalcommunity.blogspot.ca/2013/05/submitting-mobile-data-to-adobe-cq.html.
