Uploading files to Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 DAM using Asset Manager API

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager application that lets a user select a file from their local desktop and upload it to AEM Digital Asset Manager (DAM).  For example, assume you want your customers to upload photos taken from a mobile device and upload to enter a local contest.


Using an Experience Manager component that is developed in this article, an image can be uploaded from the web site to the Experience Manager DAM.



The Experience Manager component posts the selected image to a Sling Servlet. The Sling Servlet uses the AssetManager API to place the uploaded file into the DAM, as shown in the following illustration.

Working with Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 Content Fragments

Have you ever wondered how to easily create text snippets in Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 and store them in the JCR repository, for easy re-use when authoring web pages, mobile applications, social content, and so on?

In Experience Manager 6.4, you can use content fragments that let you create original content in Experience Manager, enabling copy writers to create editorial content before it is being authored in a page, and to further allow curating such content by creating channel specific variations and by associating collections with relevant media content. As a result, web producers receive content that is prepared and "ready to go”, enabling them to focus on assembling content across channels, globally and on a local level.

The following illustration shows the Content Fragment created in this article.

Creating an Event Listener for Adobe Experience Manager 6.4

You can develop a custom JCR Event Listener for Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 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 handler, you create an OSGi bundle that contains a class that implements javax.jcr.observation.EventListener. For information, see EventListener.

Querying MySQL data using an Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 DataSourcePool

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 application that queries data located in a relational database and displays the data within a web page. In this article, you use a com.day.commons.datasource.poolservice.DataSourcePool instance to setup a connection to a MySQL database. Then you can use Java JDBC API to perform database operations, such as executing a query. For information, see Java JDBC API.

The following illustration shows the Experience Manager component developed in this article that displays data queried from MySQL.
