This a content package project generated using the AEM Multimodule Lazybones template.
This project uses Maven for building. Common commands:
From the root directory, run
mvn -PautoInstallPackage clean install to build the bundle and content package and install to a CQ instance.
From the bundle directory, run
mvn -PautoInstallBundle clean install to build just the bundle and install to a CQ instance.
Using with AEM Developer Tools for Eclipse
To use this project with the AEM Developer Tools for Eclipse, import the generated Maven projects via the Import:Maven:Existing Maven Projects wizard. Then enable the Content Package facet on the content project by right-clicking on the project, then select Configure, then Convert to Content Package... In the resulting dialog, select src/main/content as the Content Sync Root.
Using with VLT
To use vlt with this project, first build and install the package to your local CQ instance as described above. Then cd to
content/src/main/content/jcr_root and run
vlt --credentials admin:admin checkout -f ../META-INF/vault/filter.xml --force http://localhost:4502/crx
Once the working copy is created, you can use the normal
vlt up and
vlt ci commands.
Specifying CRX Host/Port
The CRX host and port can be specified on the command line with: mvn -Dcrx.host=otherhost -Dcrx.port=5502
Cutting a release
To cut a release use the embedded maven-release-plugin. Since these artifacts are manually distributed (and not via public artifact repositories) the following command can be used:
mvn -Dresume=false release:prepare release:perform -Darguments="-Dmaven.deploy.skip=true"
When cutting a release, ensure semantic versioning is followed and all releases end with an EVEN build number (x.x.EVEN) and the next develop SNAPSHOT ends with an ODD build numner (x.x.ODD-SNAPSHOT)
