Hello everyone! Welcome to this AEM development series. We can all see that the revolution of Digital Marketing today. Companies are dying to be a part of it and they have made this a war for the Digital Marketing tools.
Adobe was way ahead in this war and have gained a lot of market capture. They are leaders in the Digital Marketing platforms since the 2014-15. One of the flagship product in its Digital Marketing suite is Adobe Experience Manager (AEM).
Since AEM is in huge demand, the people who know how to develop on AEM are also in huge demand. But developing on AEM is not easy as it is made up of various open-source technologies such as Apache Felix (OSGi), Apache Sling, Apache Oak and Adobe's own technologies like Granite, HTL etc. Learning all these technologies in conjunction can sometimes become confusing and frustrating 😫.
When I first started learning AEM in 2016, I was dumbfounded to see there is so much going on under the hood. I then spent months to gather all the resources (mostly Adobe's official documentation) but it was so overwhelming (my personal experience 😕).
Therefore, I decided to create a series which can help a newbie in AEM development to learn this amazing tool. This series is my learning experience to get the knack of AEM Development. I have tried to put the posts in an order in which they should be learned.
- Day 00: AEM Developer Series
- Day 01: Introduction to AEM
- Day 02: AEM Architecture
- Day 03: Setting up AEM Development Environment
- Day 04: Developing First OSGi Bundle
- Day 05: Working with Sling Servlets in AEM
- Day 06: Playing with Sling Post Servlet
- Day 07: Creating your first component in AEM
- Day 09: Dueling with Java User API
- Day 10: Getting to know Sling Models
- Day 11: Client Libraries in Action
- Day 12: Creating your custom OSGi Configuration
- Day 13: Schedulers in AEM
- Day 14: Eventing in AEM
- Day 15: Custom Workflows in AEM
- Day 16: Creating JMX Beans in AEM
- Day 17: Working with QueryBuilder API
- Day 18: Working with Granite Datasources in AEM
- Day 19: Replication API in Action
- Day 20: Working with Users and Groups in AEM
Though the order is not a compulsion, I would suggest a new AEM developer follow the order for a better understanding of the concepts.
You can find the complete code of these 20 posts on my GitHub. Feel free to fork or open issues, if any.
