Creating Custom Tag Libraries for Adobe Experience Manager

You can create custom HTML tags for Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) components. After you develop an AEM custom tag, you can invoke its actions from an AEM component, such as a text component. That is, its actions can be called from HTML using XML syntax. A custom tag build for AEM is implemented as an OSGi bundle that contains a Java class. You also need to define a tag library descriptor (TLD) file and bundle that within the OSGi bundle.

The following illustration shows the output of a custom tag defined within this development article.

This development article walks you through how to build custom tags for AEM. To read this development article, click https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/customtags.html.

Binding Adobe Experience Manager Servlets to ResourceTypes

You can create an Adobe Experience Manager sling servlet and bind it to an AEM resource type. That is, you can use a sling.servlet.resourceTypes value to register the sling servlet. In this article, a sling servlet is attached to a page using a sling:resourceType property that belongs to a page node. For information about Sling Servlets, see Servlets and Scripts.

Creating an AEM Custom Worflow Step with a dialog

You can develop a custom Adobe Experience Manager workflow step that reads data from a workflow dialog. An author enters data into a dialog during design time; typically when the workflow model is developed. The workflow step's Java logic reads the values and uses the values in application logic. In this example, the values are simply written to the AEM log file.

The following illustration shows the workflow step dialog that is created in this development article.

Passing JCR Node Objects to Adobe Experience Manager Custom Services

In some business use cases, you have to pass JCR nodes from a front-end component to a back-end custom Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) custom service. For example, you can pass a Node object (for example, a currentNode in a JSP) to an AEM service (a javax.jcr.Node Java object) and use the JCR API to read its properties and perform application logic on the values. This development article walks you through how to pass a node object from a JSP to a custom service. The custom service uses the JCR API to read a property and pass back the value as the service's return value.
