Hi,

I have created sling model for the component.

While creating the sling model i need to specify the

@Model(adaptables = Resource.class) or @Model(adaptables=slinghttpservletrequest)

On what bases we have to select the adaptables.

I am new to AEM Kindly explain in detail to understand the concept.

If you want to read the values that an author enters into a component dialog, then:

@Model(adaptables = Resource.class)

will be fine. For more on working with Sling Models on 6.5 - see this article -- Building Experience Manager 6.5 Components using Granite/Coral Resource Types

Hi kusumam24182037​,

The above links should clear your understanding.

Adapting to a SlingHttpServletRequest gives you more options to manipulate resources in general.

Moreover you can even access request params if you do so.

Adapting to a resource can be done when you just need resource properties and there is not much to do with the request.

Please check if my answer here helps.
