When working with Adobe Experience Manager (AEM), sometimes you need to query data that is located in the AEM JCR and view results. Typically you write an AEM component to display JCR data results within an AEM web application. However, sometimes you want to view JCR data from a tool that is separate from an AEM web application. For example, consider members that are stored as AEM JCR data. Assume that you want the quickly view screen names, display names, and score values.
In this situation, a Java Swing application is a good choice to use to build a custom tool that enables you to quickly query JCR data and view the result set. You can display the result set in a Swing data type that extends javax.swing.JTable, as shown in this illustration.
