$properties['my-field-name-here']: How do I access this in Java?

Avatar

Level 9

So this works ok in HTL/sightly

 

<h3>${properties['my-field-name-here'] @CONTEXT='text'}</h3>

 

But how do I access this value in Java?

 

I have this code in my class but I cannot see "my-field-name-here" in the list. Thoughts? Thanks!

ValueMap test = resource.getValueMap()

If its a Sling Model, then use ValueMapValue annotation

@ValueMapValue
private String mailAddress;

 Details here: https://techrevelhub.wordpress.com/2017/03/18/sling-model-annotations/

 

If its a Service/Servlet, use

 resource.getValueMap().get('my-field-name-here', String.class);

Here Resource needs to be the exact node where property exists. Like jcr:content 

 

This link has few examples for various types of properties: https://www.tabnine.com/code/java/methods/org.apache.sling.api.resource.ValueMap/get

Hi @jayv25585659 : I suppose you are using sling model to retrieve the field value as you have shared the sightly snippet.

Can you share how you are calling the sling model from your HTL please? It has to be something like this where myFieldNameHere would be the getter method which gives the field value of my-field-name-here.

<div data-sly-use.info="org.example.app.components.info.Info">
  <p>${info.myFieldNameHere}</p>
</div>

Or you can refer this link to see if you are doing it correctly.
