I have a dropdown list component on a page and i want to get values for the dropdown from external DB. What is the best way to achieve this?
If i write a servlet which calls database, gets data and convert in to JSON format and return that JSON, how do i load that JSON values in dropdown using Items load path?
Any help would be appreciated.
See this article - how to use a Servlet to populate a drop-down - in servlet, you can query the database:
Hope this helps.
there is a sample on our demo site with sample code
login using your facebook account
the 9th item in the carousel has a demo of populating drop down list. The demo name is cascading drop down list
you can download the package and try it
Moving this thread to AEM "Forms" topic so to have better contextual experts have a look at this.
This works only if Xtype is set to select and only for dialogs. I am looking for how to do this in a drop down field component in AEM form.
