Creating Custom Tag Libraries for Adobe Experience Manager

You can create custom HTML tags for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) components. After you develop an AEM custom tag, you can invoke its actions from an AEM component, such as a text component. That is, its actions can be called from HTML using XML syntax. A custom tag build for AEM is implemented as an OSGi bundle that contains a Java class. You also need to define a tag library descriptor (TLD) file and bundle that within the OSGi bundle.

The following illustration shows the output of a custom tag defined within this development article.
