ResourceType for OOTB Form Component


Level 4

Hi Guys ,


   I'm just trying out a use case in CQ 5. 6 and came across a requirement where a page component backing a template should directly embeed some components like breadcrumb, logo , form etc . I'm able to easily embeed custom navigation or some  OOTB  components in my jsp    using . 

  <cq:include path = "breadcrumb"  resourceType="foundation/components/breadcrumb"/> or    <cq:include path = "breadcrumb"  resourceType="foundation/components/image"/>

But to embeed OOTB form component in a similar  what resourceType should I be using  ?  Normally we can drag n drop the form component from parsys , but I'm working on a use case where form component come's pre populated for the author on a page (with formStart and formEnd ) . The author can then  configure it by adding some components in between formstart and formend  . 

Thanks in advance for your help

Just and update on the problem I forgot to post earlier . If in my script I try to use resourceTypes separately  for  formStart and formEnd  as below , it just shows up ' formStart' component .


 <cq:include path = "parContent"  resourceType="foundation/components/form/start"/>
  <cq:include path = "parContent"  resourceType="foundation/components/form/end"/>


If I remove the resourceType for formStart  , it then shows formEnd component as well .


What resourceType should I be using   so that I can get the same behaviour for the form component ,  when we drag n drop  from side kick .
