Not able to compile aem-guides-wknd repository



Hello All,

 I am new to AEM. I have set up AEM author and publish instances and able to deploy aem-guides-wknd repository using maven successful. The issue I have is with eclipse. I have installed aem plugin. When I open the aem-guides-wknd project, i get the following error and also do not see jcr-nodes properties in eclipse.



I am on the following environment. I think I need to convert the app.ui and app.content project to content type projects in eclipse, but i am not sure how. When i go to configure on particular projects, I do not get the options to make those projects as content projects.


Maven 3.6.3

Eclipse 2020.06

Java 11.08

AEM 6.5

AEM Tools ...p2update-1.3.0.


Greatly appreciate any help.

After further investigation, I found that I need to set the correct jcr_root node in Project-> Properties. By default it is incorrect. 



Setting these setting in both project UI.Apps and UI.Content resolved my issues.


Thank you for all your consideration and help

Hey @veemat1 I see that your eclipse is in 'Java' perspective. Please change your perspective from 'java' to 'AEM'. I hope you'd have already installed AEM developer tools. Once you change the perspective, you'll be able to see the 'properties' tab. Thanks, Bilal.
