Creating a HTL Repeating Data Set 6.3 Component that uses Sling Models

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager 6.3 HTL component that displays repeating information that can be set by an AEM author during design time. For example, consider a typical on-line section of a sports site. Each section of the HTL component can list a story includes:
  • a digital asset (located in the Experience Manager DAM)
  • a heading
  • text
The following illustration shows an Experience Manager HTL component listing various sport stories about a youth football club.

The multi-field in this article has the following fields based on Granite/Coral data types:
  • A text field based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield.
  • A path field based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/pathfield.
  • A textarea picker based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textarea.

This development article steps you through how to build an AEM 6.3 HTL component by using an AEM Maven Archetype 11 project and a Sling Model.
