API - Fetch all DITA Map dependencies | AEM Community Blog Seeding




API - Fetch all DITA Map dependencies by Techrevel Blog - Aanchal Sikka


Sharing a code snippet that would help you retrieve all dependencies of a DITAMAP. This includes:
1. DITA Map itself
2. Associated Topics
3. Assets used in Topics like Images
In particular, following is the snippet fetching all dependencies

List mapDependents = MapUtilities.getAllDependencies(ditamapNode);

mapDependents.forEach(associatedAsset -> {
//associatedAsset is object representing DITA-Map/Topics/Images
Sharing a Servlet that retrieves all dependencies and returns info in json format.
