Hi,

I have pressing need to automate the online form data capture , submission, notify recipient and storage of the form data from an existing AEM based portal.

However I need to evaluate between using the AEM's out-of-box form component and calling OSGI Services from it's actions (the actions I am aware would need to be custom actions) or do I make use of AEM forms to provide for these form submissions, storage of user input data and notify the specific users?

Please suggest some pros and cons of not using out-of-box Form component vs using AEM Forms.

Thanks,

Hemant

Hi Kautuk,

These are really useful pointers, as this is the question we are often faced with.

Could we also say that AEM Forms (PDF) are adaptive by default, as one of the advantages?

Is there a comprehensive list of enhancements of AEM Forms over out of box Form Component?

Appreciate your responses.

Thanks,

Rama.
