Creating an AEM HTML Template Language component that uses the WCMUsePojo class

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6 Touch UI component that can be used within the AEM Touch UI view. Furthermore, you can use the AEM HTML Template Langauge (HTL - formally known as Sightly) to develop the AEM component. HTL is the AEM template language that can be used to replace use of JSP when developing an AEM component. HTL helps you to separate your design from your application logic. For more information, see Introduction to the HTML Template Language.

An AEM author can access a HTL dialog to enter component values. For example, you can enter text that is displayed by the component, as shown in the following illustration.



After you enter the component's values (for example, text values), you click the checkmark icon and the values are entered onto the AEM page. 




This development article steps you through how to build an AEM HTL component by using an AEM Maven Archetype 10 project. This HTL uses a Java class that extends com.adobe.cq.sightly.WCMUsePojo.

Retrieving AEM LiveCopy information using the MSM API

You can use the Adobe Experience Manager Multi-Site Manager (MSM) API to retrieve information about LiveCopys. AEM MSM functionality lets you define relations between AEM sites and also lets you define to what degree re-use or control is exerted on the different sites. Using MSM, once configure MSM, you can update multi site with little effort.

This article walks you through how to use the AEM MSM API to retrieve LiveRelationship information. A LiveRelationship defines a live relationship of a synced resource between its blueprint and livecopy. For example, if a site (blueprint) "/content/geometrixx" has a livecopy in "/content/copy", then the resource of "/content/geometrixx/en/jcr:content" and "/content/copy/en/jcr:content" form a relationship. See Interface LiveRelationship.


Note: For information about MSM functionality, see Multi-Site Management.

Using an OSGi bundle that contains these APIs, you can retrieve LiveRelationship information. In this development article, the LiveRelationship values are written to the Adobe CQ log file.
