Suggestion : create a custom namespace for my application

Dear Community members,

 

I am curious if I can create a namespace to save my custom properties. Just like what AEM offers - jcr:title, dc:description, etc . I want to create my own(mysite:customTitle) and use it across my application.

 

A. is it feasible?

B. If yes, then how to do it? what's the catch and things I must take care of while creating one?

 

Look forward to your valuable thoughts on this.

 

Many thanks in advance,

Bilal.

Yes, it's feasible to add a custom namespace.

1. Open up CRX Explorer by going to http://localhost:4502/crx/explorer/index.jsp. If you are not logged in, select Login and enter Admin credentials for the AEM environment:

2. Select Node Type Administration and in the new window, select Namespaces

3. At the bottom of the window, select New

4. Enter a URL (for now, it doesn’t have to be a real URL, for example, http://weretail.com)

5. Enter a prefix, for example mysite

6. Select OK

@bilal_ahmad,

You create a new custom namespace under, the CRX Explorerhttp://localhost:4502/crx/explorer/index.jsp, via @berliant's mention. There are no problems when it comes to registering a new namespace. The catch is you need to set up a namespace for each different AEM environment(s); read is fine.

I am adding one more point to previous answer -

Make sure, your replication user(receiver) should have jcr:namespaceManagement privilege to create namespace on publish.

It's doable, but I would avoid it. Why? Because you always have to take care that this namespace is registered. Sharing a content package with Adobe support might not be that straight forward anymore.

 

Full disclosure: I never created custom namespaces in my projects. Worked very well 🙂 And I never missed them.
