Servlet for fetching data from one node and using that data elsewhere

Avatar

Level 5

Say I have multiple pages under /content/practice/articles. Now in /content/practice/articles/firstpage/jcr:content there is a property named myImage. I want to read and fetch that value from myImage property which is a path basically.

 

Now I want to navigate to /content/practice/articles/firstpage/jcr:content/root/container/detailed_page and replace the properties (mainImage & smallImage) value with the data fetched from myImage property.

 

Can someone help me with the servlet code that I need to write in order to fetch the same?

 

Note : There are 500 pages under /content/practice/articles and I would have to do the above for all of them.

 

@Nitin_laad had helped me out previously with the following code snippet, but since I'm still a newbie I'm unable to make the code run-worthy. Can someone please help me out with the full code snippet (say enclose the following with appropriate try catch block and other necessary statements). Thanks!

 

sample code 
- @component(service = Servlet.class, property = {
        Constants.SERVICE_DESCRIPTION + "= Sample servlet to copy property value",
        "sling.servlet.methods=" + HttpConstants.METHOD_POST,
        "sling.servlet.paths=" + "/bin/copy-property"
})
public class CopyPropertyServlet extends SlingAllMethodsServlet {
    private static final Logger LOG = LoggerFactory.getLogger(CopyPropertyServlet.class);

    @Override
    protected void doPost(SlingHttpServletRequest request, SlingHttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
        ResourceResolver resourceResolver = request.getResourceResolver();
        Session session = resourceResolver.adaptTo(Session.class);

        // Get the source property value
        Node sourceNode = session.getNode("/content/practice/articles/jcr:content");
        Property sourceProperty = sourceNode.getProperty("myImage");
        String sourcePropertyValue = sourceProperty.getString();

        // Get the destination property and set the value
        Node destinationNode = session.getNode("/content/practice/articles/jcr:content/root/container/main_page");
        destinationNode.setProperty("mainImage", sourcePropertyValue);

        // Save the changes
        session.save();

        response.getWriter().write("Property value copied successfully");
    }
}

I have updated the same code below to run for all the articles with try catch block , please run it in browser and see. First run it for fewer set of pages before run it for all.

Please see i didnt run this code in my local since i dont have these pages created in my local. You may need to modify the PAGE_PATH to test for other path.

Hope it helps.
