Creating an AEM JCR Event Listener using a Maven Archetype 12 Project

You can develop a custom JCR Event Listener for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.3 that responds to events that occur at the JCR level. For example, you can write an event handler to respond to the following JCR events:


  • A node was added
  • A node was moved
  • A node was deleted
  • A property was added to a node
  • A property was changed
  • A property was deleted


To create an AEM event listener, you create an OSGi bundle that contains a class that implements javax.jcr.observation.EventListener. For information, see EventListener.
