How to retrieve the node structure of the page in the UI giving the path of the page in aem6.3?

Avatar

Level 2

I need to retrieve the internal node structure(which is nothing but including the node structure of how the components of the page are stored in the JCR) of the page and render the UI giving the path of the page in aem6.3. Can anyone help me out?

Try this String nodePath = "/content/community-components/en"; try { Node node = null; NodeIterator nodes =null; String result=""; resource = slingRequest.getResourceResolver().getResource(nodePath);     if(resource != null)     {     node = resource.adaptTo(Node.class);     NodeIterator nodeItr = node.getNodes();             while(nodeItr.hasNext())                 {                 Node cNode = nodeItr.nextNode();                 result=node.getProperty("jcr:primaryType").getValue().getString();                 out.print(result);                 }     } } catch(Exception e) { out.print(e); } or http://keysandstrokes.info/aem-code-snippets-read-child-nodes-aem/

use the below js to get page nodes use(function () { var pageName = currentPage.name; var title = currentPage.properties.get("jcr:title"); var resourceName = granite.resource.name; var resourceTitle = properties.get("jcr:title"); return { pageName: pageName, title: title, resourceName: resourceName, resourceTitle: resourceTitle }; }); refer to examples here https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/htl/using/use-api-javascript.html

Hi Malarvizhi Saravanan​ :

I would suggest you to use AEM's Content Services to achieve what you want.

I is the best solution to your problem, giving you granular control over the data you would like to expose via the API.

Cheers,

Is there any other means to do with JCR Node API to achieve this?

String nodePath = "/content/community-components/en";

try

{

Node node = null;

NodeIterator nodes =null;

String result="";

resource = slingRequest.getResourceResolver().getResource(nodePath);

   if(resource != null)

  {

  node = resource.adaptTo(Node.class);

  NodeIterator nodeItr = node.getNodes();

  

   while(nodeItr.hasNext())

  {

  Node cNode = nodeItr.nextNode();

  result=node.getProperty("jcr:primaryType").getValue().getString();

  out.print(result);

  }

  }

}

catch(Exception e)

{

out.print(e);

}

You can create the structure using  "infinity.json". For Example, if the page path is "/content/we-retail/ca/en/men" you can get the data from "/content/we-retail/ca/en/men.infinity.json" by using javascript(ajax call)
