I have created AEM Maven project using archtype 15, whenever, I make changes, after few days if I refresh Styles are just not appearing, after refresh all styles were gone. This happens with me multiple times.Could you please suggest what can be the issue.
And, can we make full fledge website for POC in AEM using AEM Non-licensed version??
There could be a couple of reasons why your styles are missing after a couple of days.
1. If you are working in a shared development environment, there can be times when your colleagues are overwriting your changes.
2. If you are working on a local development environment, maybe you are accidentally overwriting your client library under /apps/my-site/clientlibs/my-clientlib, when you are building and deploying code.
* Have a look at your crx/de find the client library, and take a look at the code. Determine what changes may have overwritten your client library files.
Definitely, it is standard to use the aem-project-archetype as the base for your AEM project. You can use the aem-project-archetype as a base for a POC project or production-ready website.
