Re: sightly and javascript - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
What would best practice be however? I assume best practice would be use a JSP or Ecma to generate a dynamic JS file. Sightly is defined as being an HTML templating system right, so if you aren't generating HTML shouldn't you be using a different templating language?

Re: authenticate anonymous user on publish instance - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
The standard solution for this in CQ is to use Closed User Groups - http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/howto/create_apply_cug.html. Based on your exact use case this may be the right approach. If you are using dispatch you will have make some changes to dispatcher to make that work - see http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/deploying/dispatcher/permissions_cache.html. There some pros and cons to how you go about doing this (and some issues with the instructions). You can check out this prese...

Re: How to find nodes without specific child node? - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
I am not sure I understand the question. Can you expand on your use case, what kind of nodes are you searching for - components within a page?

Re: Dispatcher image caching issue. - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
Other asset types could work pretty much the same way - you'd have to write your servlet and figure out how to map selectors to the page specific renditions. Unlike the images you would not find as many helper APIs since most people do reference their PDFs directly these days. Still the underlying concept isn't any different. If you follow /libs/foundation/components/parbase/img.GET.java as an example you remove all the image specific stuff, you add the code to map selectors to renditions (and c...

Re: Dispatcher image caching issue. - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
If you can get the regular expression right you could probably get the rewrites working. Personally i have always found complex rewrites in /etc/maps challenging to get working as expected. If you do get it working you should be aware that your cache flushing may not work as expected since the path in the cache won't match the path in repository.

Re: Dispatcher image caching issue. - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
The best solution would be to not refer to the renditions directly. As a general rule the recommended best practice is to refer to DAM assets through a servlet rather than directly. This gives you better control of the URL and allows you better cache control in general. So for example consider how the image rendering servlet in parbase works. It's image URLs look like /content/geometrixx/en/company/_jcr_content/par/3_1219086936652.img.jpg/1289480092880.jpg. The base servlet always returns the or...

Re: Tools for AEM project creation and deployement - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
I don't believe that there are grunt plugins for full spectrum of tasks needed to build and deploy all aspects of an AEM project. If you read excellent blog post Scott pointed to from Citytech you'll see that they are using Grunt to do common JavaScript and CSS tasks (including integration to running author instances). Where you'll still need to look to Maven are the more Java related tasks like building and compiling an OSGI bundle for example. There are a lot of tasks in between those two item...

Re: Design Dialog Configuration in Different Templates. - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
If you want a guarantee that your configuration is going to be globally effective you really can't us the design mode to manage the configuration. There are strategies you can take to reduce duplication across templates but those are workarounds - design mode isn't intended to hold global configurations it's intended to hold design configurations specific to a particular location in the page or site. With a requirement like this you'll have to create some central location in your repository wher...

Re: Virtualization in AEM - Adobe Experience Manager 15-10-2015
If you are referring to server visualization there isn't any AEM related implementation details - the software is installed that same on a virtualized server as it is on physical server. The other place in AEM where you see the term virtual is around virtual components like the column control components. This is a component that doesn't actual have any code - it exists only to allow the author to drag a particular configuration on the page. Not a lot of documentation about that - you need to dig...

What version of AEM are you working with and where are you seeing that class. I can find it in 6.0.
