Adobe Experience Manager - AEM - Cloud Migration Questions and Watched folder clustering AEM 6.2

Hi All,

We are working on a solution to migrate the AEM Server from on-premises to AWS cloud. Need some help on the below questions.

  • 1. We are using AEM just for creating PDFs by running CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar. Does it start entire suite of AEM or Does it start only a component required for PDF generation?
  • 2. Is there any way to create PDF without running CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar
  • 3. Is there any benefit in using different run mode? Author Vs Publish nosample
  • 4. Currently with default run mode, CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar takes ~3 mins to get started. Can this be reduced?
  • 5. Does CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar  setup anything on local system? OR Can CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar be run in AWS Lambda function?
  • 6. Current system uses ‘Watched folder’ to place files and trigger PDF generation. Is there any better way to do this?
  • 7. How to do cluster of AEM with ‘Watched folder’
  • 8. Usecase /sample/ best practices for multi-language support in creating PDF
  • 9. Currently after CQ-quickstart-6.3.0 jar is started, ‘Watched folder’ is configured thru admin console. Can we set the ‘Watched folder’ at the time of startup itself? Can we set/change the ‘Watched folder’ programmatically?
  • 10. When I move to cloud, Do I need to have license only for the component that I am using (for eg PDF generation alone) and install only that?

1. There is no concept of running only component in AEM. Either you start "CQ-quickstart-6.3.0.jar" or not.

2. Not by AEM.

3. Here is the documentation Run Modes which will tell you everything about run modes and which to use when.

4. Why do you want to reduce it? I mean this is one time things and we don not start it again and again. Also, tons of things happens when you start the JAR file for first time, then onward it would take less time.

And to keep better track and SEO of the questions it is encouraged to post questions separately.
