SLING URL DECOMPOSITION

Avatar

Level 4

When the request url is lets say /content/myapp.html and sling:resourceType of myapp is /apps/myapp/components/myappcomponent.

 

Scenario 1: under myappcomponent, lets say there are  following files myappcomponent.html, myappcomponent.esp

 

In this case myappcomponent.html will be rendered.

 

Scenario 2: under myappcomponent, lets say there are  following files myappcomponent.esp

 

In this case myappcomponent.esp will be rendered.

 

Scenario 3: under myappcomponent, lets say there are  following files myappcomponent.json,myappcomponent.js,myappcomponent.txt

 

what will be rendered in this case????????

 

Question: is there any other fallback extensions which are supported in Sling if there is no applicable extension which is requested?

  • various script engines are supported:

    • HTL (HTML Template Language - Adobe Experience Manager’s preferred and recommended server-side template system for HTML): .html
    • ECMAScript (JavaScript) Pages (server-side execution): .esp, .ecma
    • Java Server Pages (server-side execution): .jsp
    • Java Servlet Compiler (server-side execution): .java
    • JavaScript templates (client-side execution): .jst

@Prashanth_02a Please see below link for an example. Ideally combination of selector and extensions takes the highest priority. Same has been explained in this link:

@krati_garg This example is demonstrating only .html and .esp as I mentioned in my query, not others.

@Prashanth_02a 

selectors have maximum priority and the more selectors are matched the highest the priority. If selectors are not matched then the extension gets priority.

 

It follows the below pattern:

{resourceTypeLabel}.{selectorString}.{requestMethod}.{requestExtension}.{scriptExtension}

Hope this helps.

For Scenario 3: I believe none of them will render.

As far as I remember jsp,esp,html are suppported.

for all other than html - the suffix is added to the script name

eg: 

 /myappcomponent.js.esp

 /myappcomponent.json.esp

 /myappcomponent.txt.esp

Have you already tried it out?

You will get a 404 if

* you are requesting a non-existing content node

* if a resourcetype is given but does not exist
