Reading OSGi Configuration Values for Adobe Experience Manager 6.3

Summary

Discusses how to create an Adobe Experience Manager OSGi bundle that reads configuration values. This article uses Declarative Services Annotations

You can define OSGi configuration values by using CRXDE lite and dynamically read these values from within an OSGi service. By defining configuration values, you can define values used by an OSGi service and use these values while the service is running. Unlike hard-coding values in an AEM OSGi service, defining values in the AEM configuration user interface (http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr) lets you change values without re-compiling the bundle.

Creating a HTL Repeating Data Set 6.3 Component that uses Sling Models

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager 6.3 HTL component that displays repeating information that can be set by an AEM author during design time. For example, consider a typical on-line section of a sports site. Each section of the HTL component can list a story includes:
  • a digital asset (located in the Experience Manager DAM)
  • a heading
  • text
The following illustration shows an Experience Manager HTL component listing various sport stories about a youth football club.



The multi-field in this article has the following fields based on Granite/Coral data types:
  • A text field based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textfield.
  • A path field based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/pathfield.
  • A textarea picker based on granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/textarea.

This development article steps you through how to build an AEM 6.3 HTL component by using an AEM Maven Archetype 11 project and a Sling Model.
