When creating a new component in AEM 6.2 I noticed it doesn't appear as an available component in the side rail or in design mode until I add the cq:EditConfig node to the component.  I also noticed if I add a dialog.xml node it will allow it to appear in the side rail and via design mode but my understanding is this is part of classic ui and isn't needed for touchui.  Any help with clarifying this would be appreciated.


Thanks!

Isn't the dialog.xml for the Classic UI and the cq:dialog is for touch ui?  Why would we need a dialog.xml in this case?  It will appear in the side rail with a cq:EditConfig node and no dialog.xml.
