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.

Thanks,

Kalyani

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?
