Developing HTL Components that search for Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 Content Tags

You can create a custom Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 (AEM) HTL component that searches for AEM content tags. Tags are a quick and easy method of classifying content within your website. In technical terms, a tag is a piece of metadata assigned to a content node within AEM (usually a page). Within the OSGi component, the AEM Tag Manager is used to search for the content tags. For information about this API, see AEM TagManager.
The following video shows this HTL component displaying tags.

Replicating Experience Manager Content using the Replication API

When working with Adobe Experience Manager content, such as pages and digital assets, you can use workflows to replicate the content. Furthermore, you can use the AEM Replication API to build a custom step that replicates content from the Author instance to the Publisher instance.  For more information, see Replication API.

For example, consider a business requirement when a digital asset has to be replicated using a workflow. However, each time you replicate the asset, you have an additional business requirment. For example, you have to track the path (and other information) of the Asset that is replicated in a database.  Using a custom step, you can track the information to address your business requirement and replicate the asset.

NOTE - This Article has been updated to SHOW USE of a CUSTOM REP Agent. (See code at the end of the article)

The following illustration show the workflow model that replicates a digital asset to the Publish instance.



The following video shows the use case - replicating content using the Replication API.

Creating a custom Experience Manager 6.4 sling:resourceType for Touch UI

You can create a custom sling resource type that can be used in an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.4 Touch UI component by using a JQuery plug-in. That is, if you want to define a field in a Touch UI component dialog that is not available with the available Granite API, you can define your own custom type.

As an AEM developer working in the Touch UI, it is important to understand how to create a custom sling resource type to be able to define custom fields.  In the AEM community, there has been requests on how to develop a full color spectrum field for a Touch UI component dialog, as shown in this video.
