What is ACS AEM Commons, Netcentric Accesscontroltool and AEM Groovy Console? ACS AEM Commons A way to bootstrap AEM projects with common functionality, a set of reusable components, and an AEM development toolkit. Access Control Tool for Adobe Experience Manager The Access Control Tool for Adobe Experience Manager (AC Tool) simplifies the specification and deployment of complex Access Control Lists in AEM. Instead of existing solutions that build e.g. a content package with actual ACL nodes you can write simple configuration files and deploy them with your content packages. See Comparison to other approches for a comprehensive overview. AEM Groovy Console The AEM Groovy Console provides an interface for running Groovy scripts in Adobe Experience Manager. Scripts can be created to manipulate content in the JCR, call OSGi services, or execute arbitrary code using the AEM, Sling, or JCR APIs. After installing the package in AEM (instructions below), see the console page for documentation on the available bindings and methods. Sample scripts are included in the package for reference.
