Unable to set pipeline.type while migrating from SCR to OSGi DS annotation

Dear community members,

I am migrating my codebase from using SCR annotations to DS annotations. While the previous implementation sets the 'pipeline.type' property this way and it's working:

And I just tried this way to migrate it:

new-way.PNG

 

 

 but it couldn't set the property somehow. It threw:

Valuable thoughts?

Thanks in advance, Bilal.

Hi @bilala23933647 

You are doing it wrong.

Refer this blog https://medium.com/adobetech/aem-6-4-creating-a-scheduler-using-osgi-r6-annotations-4ad0b8c6fce7

Unlike with SCR annotations, it is very clean and simple to create OSGi configurations using R6 annotations by simply using @AttributeDefinition.

 

If you want to create your OCD in same class then you can refer below code:

 

package aem.core.service;

import org.apache.sling.rewriter.Transformer;
import org.apache.sling.rewriter.TransformerFactory;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Activate;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Component;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Modified;
import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.AttributeDefinition;
import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.Designate;
import org.osgi.service.metatype.annotations.ObjectClassDefinition;


@Component(service = TransformerFactory.class, immediate = true)
@Designate(ocd = LinkTransformerFactory.Config.class)
public class LinkTransformerFactory implements TransformerFactory {

@ObjectClassDefinition(name = "LinkTransformerFactory Service", description = "LinkTransformerFactory Configuration")
public @interface Config {

@AttributeDefinition(name = "Pipeline Type", required = true)
String getPipelineType() default "gatedassettransformer";
}

@Activate
@Modified
protected void activate(final Config config) {
String pipelineType = config.getPipelineType();
}

@Override
public Transformer createTransformer() {
return null;
}
}

 

Thank you @ArpitVarshney for the quick response! However I tried setting that value the way you shared. Still it says "Unable to get component of class 'interface org.apache.sling.rewriter.Transformer' with type 'gatedassettransformer'". And that is strange!! Any other suspicion/thoughts ? Many Thanks, BIlal.

Hi @bilala23933647 

 

I've tried the same code in my AEM instance and it is working fine for me. I am able to log the updated pipeline type which is correctly reflected.

However, if the shared code is somehow not working for you, please go through the blog link that I've shared.

Please refer below code which has been copied from Adobe's documentation.[Link]

 

package com.adobe.community.rewriter.core;

import org.apache.sling.rewriter.Transformer;
import org.apache.sling.rewriter.TransformerFactory;
import org.osgi.service.component.annotations.Component;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

/**
* A TransformerFactory service instance for creating a Transformer to add link
* type icons into links to documents.
*
* @author dklco@apache.org
* @see com.perficient.adobe.rewriter.LinkTypeTransformer
*/
@Component(property = { "pipeline.type=linktype" }, service = { TransformerFactory.class })
public class LinkTypeTransformerFactory implements TransformerFactory {

private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(LinkTypeTransformerFactory.class);

/*
* (non-Javadoc)
*
* @see org.apache.sling.rewriter.TransformerFactory#createTransformer()
*/
@Override
public Transformer createTransformer() {
log.trace("createTransformer");
return new LinkTypeTransformer();
}
