Need to read xml/text file and populate it in Generic list page

Avatar

Level 2

ACS AEM common Generic list component provide us to list key/value pair on page. I have XML and flat files with tons of key/value pairs. Is there some way to directly populate all key/values from XML and text files to generic list.

Thanks,

Out of the box - there is no service. However - AEM is very powerful in that it lets you build custom services.

Create a custom AEM service that uses Java XML library to read XML:

You can also build Java logic to read from text fiile:

You can build this Java logic into a custom AEM Service:

Is there any example to add new child node through sling API calls?

I am able to manage below code snippets through some research but somehow it doesn't work  

String file = "/etc/acs-commons/lists/test/jcr:content/list";

       Resource pageResource = rr.getResource(file);        
        Map<String,Object> prop =  new HashMap<>();
        prop.put("jcr:title","test");
        prop.put("value","testvalue");
        Resource newr = rr.create(pageResource,"item3",prop);

Thanks,

Never mind, I got it working now.

I didnt close and commit resource resolver - that did trick.
