Eclipse AEM plugin + server configuration, what does it do?

Avatar

Level 8

 

According to this article: https://aem.redquark.org/2018/10/day-03-setting-up-aem-development.html

You can add your local sever.  I did this.

 

I already have the wknd app deployed previously from the command line (mvn clean install -PautoInstallSinglePackage)

 

What can I do with this connected instance?  I presume I still need to use maven if I want to build and deploy my local changes (e.g. to core), so the server integration is not involved.

 

The article mentioned importing and exporting content. How does one do this?

Hi @TB3dock 

This works in the same way as of FileVault tool. Please see the details about Filevault here:

http://www.aemcq5tutorials.com/tutorials/configure-filevault-vlt-tool-in-cq/

 

Basically using the plugin, you can make some change in Eclipse/editor and can export the file only to AEM without rebuilding the whole code. Also if you are making any change on CRX/DE that can be pulled back to your file system using the plugin.

 

Thanks!

Interesting. That file vault config looks long winded and difficult - is it worth the effort? Does this work for code in core, or only for content? VS Code already has the ability to push files (not core) directly to a running server, is this different?
