Creating an AEM HTML Template Language Component that displays data from a SOAP Web Service

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) HTML Template Language (HTL) component that displays data retrieved from a third-party web service. An HTL component can dynamically display a different data set based upon the return value of SOAP web service. For example, assume you want to display cities located in a Country. Using a HTL component dialog, you can specify the Country, such as the United States, and the number of cities to return. A web service call is made from the Java part of the HTL component and the result set is displayed in the HTL component, as shown in the following illustration.

This development article walks you through how to build an AEM HTL component that dynamically displays content based on data returned from a third-party web service.
