DIL Vs JS

AEM_Forum

22-09-2017

Hi,

DIL itself is a JS library, used for AAM.

JS is used for AA.

1. Is DIL a super set of JS? What exactly is the difference between these two?

2. Could AA interpret DIL?

3. If AA is connected to the site and AAM is connected to AA, will DIL traverse through AA to AAM?

If AA does not understand DIL, will this work?

Appreciate your responses.

Thanks,

Rama.

Hi Rama,

DIL.js is used for AAM, appmeasurement.js is used for AA, both are JS files. you can name it anything. It is not mandatory to name it exactly DIL.js or appmeasurement.js you can name the file anything as per your convenience, but both are written in JS (javascript).

1. DIL is not a superset of JS, DIL is written in JS,

2. DIL code can be placed in the same file where you have AA appmeasurement code. DIL starts receiving data when you add this code in custom DIL : siteCatalyst.init

3. There is no need for AA to understand DIL, the main function of DIL is to collect data from front end site/app and also from AA or GA (google analytics) and send that to demdex servers (AAM).
