We are migrating to AEM 6.5 and looking to leverage some of the tools in AEM Forms 6.5, however, we are only interested in using this within our own environment, and not at all interested in leveraging any of the AEM marketing cloud services. Does anyone know if there is a cost to using AEM Forms within your own environment, as the package seems to be freely available in the package share.
AFAIK AEM Forms is a standalone product that you can use in your own environment. The other marketing cloud products (such as Analytics, Target, etc.) are not needed for AEM Form. However, integration will other marketing cloud products will provide additional enhancement to AEM Form should you need it later.
Thanks, but we are looking to use the OSGI version, as I stated that we are migrating to AEM 6.5. We are currently on AEM 6.3. We only want to use it for the dynamic form capabilities and the integrated google recaptcha. The other bells and whistles are nothing we are interested in. In a nutshell we do not want to leverage the entire AEM forms system and feel that AEM is dramatically lacking in the OOTB form capabilities. Even wordpress comes with better form capabilities and its free.
