Creating custom Adobe Experience Manager 6.2 ecommerce providers

You can use the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) 6.2 API to create a custom eCommerce provider. A custom eCommerce provider lets you create eCommerce components such as an AEM shopping cart component to use  within an AEM online retail site and provides functionality such as:

  • provides an overview of selected items
  • links to the individual product pages
  • updates to quantity
  • removal of the item

A shopping cart component lets visitors perform tasks such as purchase items, as shown in the following illustration.

This development article walks you through how to use the AEM eCommerce API to build a custom provider. To read this development article, click
