Coding for CQ/WEM can be quite confusing sometimes, as confusing as it is whether it's CQ or WEM. This post is about basic WEM Code samples (in JSP) using CQ scripting objects on top of JSP implicit objects. First of all, let me be clear, since Adobe acquired Day Software, the name of Day CQ (Comuniqué) had changed to WEM (Web Experience Manager), thus CQ and WEM are interchangeable.
It is common to have multiple CQ Publisher instances in different environments (DEV, QA, PROD, etc.). When you make user administration and security changes toward users and groups on the production server, you may want to bring them down to the lower DEV and QA environments so they don't go out of sync. In such scenario, you have to copy over both user/group definition and the permission definition. This post shows you how to copy users and groups you set up on one CQ instance (source CQ) to another instance (destination CQ), and how to bring over the permissions (resource-based ACLs) from the source CQ to the destination CQ.
There are multiple ways to handle events at different levels in CQ. In this post, I'd show you some sample code that starts a corresponding job based on an event (e.g. the action type of the ReplicationAction event) triggered at the Sling level.
To put the above into context, let's assume we have a 'custom CQ workflow process step' (a.k.a. automated step) - PostPageActivationWorkFlow.java - developed already. The customer step is normally part of some workflow. This custom process step was designed so that it will 'replicate' the payload (the entity upon which a workflow instance acts) to a hypothetical remote place via HTTP POST. To run and trigger this custom process step (which in terms will execute PostPageActivationWorkFlow.replicate() method that I named and implemented), you normally create a workflow by dropping this custom process step into it. When the workflow runs into this step, its execute() will be executed. However, instead of triggering the process step from the workflow, what if we also want such 'replication' to be triggered by an CQ event (specifically, by the action type of the ReplicationAction event)? The following code sample will show you how.
It is often confusing as to how to set up an OSGi development environment for CQ5. In this post, I'll set what is to be coded aside, but focus on how to quickly and easily use CRXDE Lite (the web interface of CQ5) for
