Hi,

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.

Thanks

Hi,

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.
