Retrieve the name of a node


Level 7

i am working on aem 6.3 and would like to get page name

SELECT * FROM [cq:Page] WHERE ISDESCENDANTNODE("/content/Product/Silhouettes/Accessories/Bands/Headband")

If I need to retrieve name of the nodes using sql-2 , how do I achieve it?

If your query is that simple, traversing the content tree is probably faster :-)

if you use JCR query, you have a QueryResult object; on this you can execute "getNodes" to retrieve a NodeIterator object. Use this to get the actual nodes, and on the node you can call .getName().

I am using ACS-COMMONS page report tool page to generate a report for pages. It is great and I need a new column there which is "NAME" of page.

I tried various values for property value of text column to display the name but not successful.

Following are the text column property values I tried : name, name(), name(s), name(*), jcr:name, jcr:content/jcr:name, jcr:content/metadata/jcr:name, NAME, NAME(), NAME(*), NAME(s)

Any help ?
