Creating an AEM HTL Component that uses the QueryBuilder API

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM)  HTL (formally Sightly)  component that can be used within the AEM Touch UI view. Furthermore, you can use HTL and the QueryBuilder API to develop the AEM component that displays AEM JCR data.

HTL  is an AEM  template language that can be used to replace the use of JSP when developing an AEM component. HTL helps you to separate your design from your application logic.  In this use case, the HTL logic is located within an HTML file and displays the result set. The Java part of the HTL component uses the QueryBuilder API.
