Include core components into your own project maven build

To add core components to your project, you will need to add it to your maven build. The released version of the core components are available on the public maven repository at https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/com/adobe/cq/core.wcm.components.all/

For Projects using Maven Archetype 17 and below

To include the core components package into your own project's maven build using AEM's maven archetype 17 and below, you can add the dependency to your pom.xml like this

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.adobe.cq</groupId>
    <artifactId>core.wcm.components.all</artifactId>
    <type>zip</type>
    <version>2.5.0</version>
</dependency>

and then add this subpackage to your sub package section

 <subPackage>
     <groupId>com.adobe.cq</groupId>
     <artifactId>core.wcm.components.all</artifactId>
     <filter>true</filter>
 </subPackage>

inside the configuration of the content-package-maven-plugin.

Also, make sure that if you have a sub module like ui.apps to add the core components as a dependency to ui.apps/pom.xml as well.

For Projects Using Maven Archetype 18 and Above

To include the core components package into your own project using AEM Archetype 18+, add it as a dependency to your build like so:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.adobe.cq</groupId>
    <artifactId>core.wcm.components.all</artifactId>
    <type>zip</type>
    <version>2.5.0</version>
</dependency>

Then add it as a subpackage

 <subPackage>
     <groupId>com.adobe.cq</groupId>
     <artifactId>core.wcm.components.all</artifactId>
     <filter>true</filter>
 </subPackage>

inside the configuration of the filevault-package-maven-plugin.
