Building Experience Manager Component using Granite/Coral Resource Types

When creating components for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.3/6.4, you use Granite/Coral resource types. These resource types are used in the component’s dialog. That is, the UI that makes up the dialog fields and lets an author enter information used by the AEM component.

Many AEM Developers are familiar with Classic UI xtypes based widgets such as text fields, path fields, drop-down fields, and so on. However, when it comes to working with the Touch UI, xtypes are not used. Instead resource types are used to build Touch UI component dialogs. This article helps you become familiar working with Granite/Coral resource types that can be applied in your day to day component development work.

This article teaches you how to build Experience Manager 6.4 components by using Granite/Coral data types such as:


  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textarea
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/select
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/radiogroup
  • granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/multifield

In addition, this article teaches you how to read the values that an author enters in a dialog using HTL, Java WCMUsePojo and Sling Models. Click https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/aem64_coral_resourcetypes.html.
