Read this:- Run Modes

//There are two pairs of mutually exclusive run modes; for example, you can:

  • define either author or publish, not both at the same time
  • combine author with either samplecontent or nosamplecontent (but not both)

So default when you open AEM instance by double-clicking, it will open author + samplecontent Which is used by devs.

There is one more concept here to open AEM instance in Debug mode: java -jar cq-quickstart-6.0.0.jar -debug 10123

Hi,

Refer below links which helps you to get started and setup the development environment -

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-3/deploy.html#Getting%20Started

https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-3/deploy/command-line-start-and-stop.html

For developing on AEM it is quite common to use an instance installed on your local machine running Apple OS X or desktop versions of Microsoft Windows or Linux. For more information, refer: Technical Requirements

Customers with a valid maintenance and support contract should have received a mail notification with a code and be able to download AEM from the Adobe Licensing Website. Business partners can request download access from spphelp@adobe.com. For additional information see Download AEM.

The AEM software package is available in two foms:

cq-quickstart-6.3.0.jar: A standalone executable jar file that includes everything needed to get up and running.

cq-quickstart-6.3.0.war: A war file for deployment in a third-party application server. For details on installing AEM in an application server see Application Server Install.

Note: Generally, when you set up Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), you need to set up an Author and a Publish instances.

Installation procedures for these are described in Installing an Author instance and Installing an Publish instance.

We hope this information helps!
