Converting jsp to HTL



Hi I am trying to convert my existing jsp to htl. I am stuck at preparing valuemapresource which was included in jsp like below

ValueMap vm= new ValueMapDecorator(new HashMap<>());
vm.put("granite:class", "classname");
vm.put("value", value);
vm.put("name", name);
vm.put("text", text);
ValueMapResource valueMapResource = new ValueMapResource(resourceResolver, resource.getPath(), "granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox", vm);
<sling:include resource="<%= valueMapResource %>"/>

 I wanted to convert this above snippet to HTL using data-sly-resource. could you let me know how can i be able to prepare this similar resource in htl.

Hi Srikanth,


HTL is strictly presentation layer. There is no way to create objects or write any logic  in HTL. You need a support class(Sling Model or Use class) to return ValueMapResource object. The returned object can be included in HTL.

You can simply create a node in crx/de of required resource type (here : "granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/checkbox") . You can add the properties to node, like here you're putting it in ValueMap and  you can include that resource using data-sly-resource HTL syntax like below :


<div data-sly-resource="path/to/resource"></div>

For more ways to include resources using HTL please refer :
