Retrieving Adobe Experience Manager ContextHub information using the ContextHub API

Adobe Experience Manager exposes a Java API named the ContextHub API that lets you programmatically obtain information about the Experience Manager ContextHub. The Experience Manager ContextHub contains data that displays information about users, known as context data. For more information about the Experience Manager ContextHub, including ContextHub stores, see Adding ContextHub to Pages and Accessing Stores.

For example, you can create a custom Experience Manager service that logs information about the ContextHub, as shown below.
