AEM: Extend Core Component models using resource type association and delegation by Theo Pendle

Abstract

How to use the original rendition of an Image asset without having to create a component from scratch

AEM Core Components are an amazingly useful resource, and with their inclusion in the AEM Maven Archetype and in the WKND tutorial, they have become ubiquitous in AEM Sites development. If you aren’t using them already I highly recommend that you do.

1. Sometimes no, so I create my component from scratch.
2. Sometimes yes, so I simply proxy the component from Core Components to my project.
3. Often… kinda. Core Components don’t have all the answers (which is a good thing or I wouldn’t have a job!), but they are a good base on which to build.
