Creating your first Adobe Experience Manager Touch UI component

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6 Touch UI component that can be used within the AEM Touch UI environment. An AEM Touch UI component is located on the side rail. You can drag the component from the side rail onto an AEM page, as shown in this illustration.



NOTE: In the Touch UI environment, components are located on the side rail. In the Classic UI environment, components are located in the AEM Sidekick.

Once you drag the component onto the AEM page, you can access its Touch UI dialog to enter component values. For example, you can enter text that is displayed by the component. 



After you enter the component's values, you click the checkmark icon and the values are entered onto the AEM page.




This development article walks you though how to create your first AEM Touch UI component that you can drag from the side rail onto an AEM page in the Touch UI environment. To read this development article, click http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-touchui-component.html.

Extending the Adobe Experience Manager 6 Administrator User Interface

You can customize the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) administrator user interface to meet your business requirements. For example, you can add a new button or menu item to the user interface that lets an administrator access custom functionality within AEM. To customize the AEM administrator user interface, you overlay JCR nodes located under /libs, place them under /apps and modify JCR nodes and properties. By modifying JCR nodes and properties, you can modify the AEM user admin.





In the previous illustration, notice that a menu option has been modified under Help. This represents a change that you can make by modifying the AEM JCR. To read this development article, click      http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/extending-aem-6-administrator-user.html.

Posting AEM 6 Form Data to Custom Services

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6 form and submit the data to a custom AEM service. The custom service can process the data to meet your business requirements. For example, you can store the data in a database or send the data within an email message. However, to keep this article simple, the custom AEM service writes the posted data to the AEM log file.
An AEM 6 form can be consumed in a mobile device or a web browser running on a desktop. For example, consider a mobile user filling out the following AEM 6 form on an IPad device..



When the user clicks the Submit button, the form data is submitted to an AEM Sling Servlet. Once the data reaches the Sling Servlet, you can process the mobile data to meet your business requirements. For example, you can store it in a relational database, store it in the AEM JCR, or pass it to an AEM Workflow (just to give a few examples).

Scheduling Adobe Experience Manager Jobs using Apache Sling

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) OSGi bundle that uses Sling APIs to create a custom Sling Schedule Service. This service performs an AEM job at a scheduled time. In this article, assume that the following use case exists:

1. The Scheduler Service runs each weekday and checks to determine if there are more than six stale workflow items. It uses MBean API logic to perform this task.

2. If there are more than six stale workflow items, an email message is sent to an AEM administrator.
