AEM 6.3 - How to read policy value from editable template initially


Level 4

I have a editable template where a component has a design dialog where the template author will enter the values.



and in the design dialog i have a node of select type where the data is bound by using datasource through a servlet where I need to fetch the data from the policy.


and the code for the servlet is as follows. If i dont give policyPath and just get the resource from request.getResource() i am getting contentpolicy as null.


initially when there are no policies a dynamic policy is being created when we get the resource and a nullpointer is being thrown.


So how to handle this initially that no null pointer is thrown and can say there are no policies.

If you want to read data from a policy - then like any other AEM nodes - make sure you referencing the correct path if you want to read the node's properties.

For your code - where did you get it - are you referencing an Adobe doc?

I have used Adobe Experience Manager Help | Using Granite DataSource objects to populate AEM Touch UI objects  for binding the data to the dropdown.

For reading policies i have read in some forums that by using ContentPolicyManager to get the policy.
