I am sorry, but I don't think that we can give you the information you are requesting. You stated above, that you want to setup integrations. Now you have given us a number of product names.

But without proper usecases behind it I can't give you a good recommendation. Because depending on the usecase a certain approach to interface with Hybris or Marketo makes sense, for other usecases the very same approach does not help. From my point of view without clear objective and usecases in mind, you cannot do integrations.

As an example from an AEM only setup: If you ask me "What do I have to do to work with AEM assets" (without any further usecase behind it or more explanation) I could give this answer: "Just start AEM quickstart on a dedicated machine and start uploading assets". That's a valid answer and works for you if you upload a few hundreds assets (documents up to 1 MB). That's a totally wrong approach when you need to ingest thousands of assets daily. In both cases its "work with AEM assets".

I hope you understand that it's very hard for us to answer to very generic questions, because there are so many options and usecases around, and many of these options and usecases require different approaches and solutions. And without these details I would rather give no answer at all than a wrong answer. I probably can give you options, not an exact step-by-step instruction how make an integration. Although it might sound like an excuse, but AEM is enterprise software supporting many many options, and matching the requirements to one of these options is an essential part of every AEM project.

If you are new to AEM, I would not start directly with integrating AEM with other products. Start developing templates and components, understand the inner mechanics of the product (OSGI, JCR, the Sling rendering pipeline). When you are proficient with this, then you can start to think about integrations.

These integrations are hardly like "configure the adress of the Hybris instance and enter IP adress, username and password". It's much much more complex, and even if the integration would be that sophisticated (it probably isn't), what would you learn from it?

i have jar file but i want to integrate aem with any third party..i want to know that what is app server integration and how to integarte aem with app server..and what is preferable app server to integrate with aem not installing.

smacdonald2008 22-08-2018

" but i need to use jar file in my project"

What are you trying to do? You asked for information on how to run AEM on an App Server. This assumes you have the AEM WAR file.

If you have the Quick Start JAR - you start AEM by clicking on it. You do not need to run a standalone AEM Quick Start JAR on an App Server.

but when i read this link they are using war file but i need to use jar file in my project..please provide me some other link or information

shivangim985778 21-08-2018

which article can you please resend it to me and also can you please provide me the name of other app server which can be integrate with aem

The article is independent of whether AEM is in JAR form or WAR form.

Just install the package provided in the article into the AEM server and you would be good to test it's working.

Or if you want to build it from stretch, please follow the steps mentions in it.

1. Create a AEM Maven 13 archetype

2. Create a HeroRestComponent

3. Add the Dependency Libraries to AEM

4. Build the OSGi bundle using Maven

5. Create the HTL Front End Component

Please follow the article.

I am afraid if I can help you unless I know the use-case. There many ways by which we can integrate AEM with 3rd party tools [1].

One of the way is mentioned above by Scott (that use-case is independent of if you are using AEM JAR or WAR).

[1]

AEM calling 3rd party REST calls

3rd party calling AEM

AEM-3rd party JS intigrations

and many more use-cases could be there.

Can you please help me with some more details on your use case, What do you want to achieve, which 3rd party tool are you referring ?

These question are too generic to provide a meaningful response. Can you refine them and make them more specific? At the moment I don't even see a relation to AEM...

thanks,

Read this for information on how to use AEM and APP servers - Application Server Install

You can write an AEM Service to integrate AEM with other software/services. For example, assume you want to use AEM and a Google Service. You can write code to do that as explained here - Creating an Adobe Experience Manager 6.4 HTL Component that displays data from a Restful Web Service
