A component can be configured for following

  1. Page specific (in this case component dialog is used)
  2. Design/Global (in this case design_dialog is used)

The obvious difference is in their name i.e. “dialog” and “design_dialog”

The way properties (stored content/values) are access:

The way a dialog or design_dialog is defined is exactly same, there are only two differences:
  • Retrieve values from dialog (widget) to jsp: String var= properties.get("","");
  • Retrieve values from design_dialog to jsp: String var= currentStyle.get("","");
Content/values stored via get stored at page level under component’s node. On the other hand, content/value stored via a design dialog is store at design path of your teamplate (see cq:designPath property of root node of your application/page), usually this location is under /etc/design/

If you want to change something on page level you create dialog and if changes are global/template level you go for design dialog.
