In this article let’s look into the new feature which is Apache Sling Sitemap Generation as part Service Pack 11 for AEM 6.5.
As nowadays Adobe is more recommending on using OOTB features available in AEM. So we will look into the new feature that came for AEM 6.5 in service pack 11 which is Apache Sling Sitemap Generator. Earlier we used to use ACS Commons Sitemap Generator which is now deprecated. This comes along with the AEMaaCs SDK whereas we need to install the SP11 for 6.5 to make use of this Generator.
We can use Apache Sling Sitemap Generator by two ways:
On Demand : Sitemap is regenerated every time a request for sitemao us made. Good for small sites. And it is handy to test the sitemap generator as you don’t have to wait for any scheduled job.
Sitemap Scheduler : Sitemap is generated on the defined frequency in background process and cached and access when required. It is useful and cost effective for Big sites.
