    How to add AEM 6.2 Form to AEM Eclipse project , or how to “transfer” AEM 6.2 Form from Server to Eclipse

    RobertBailey2017

      Hi All,

      What is the best method or practise for adding an AEM 6.2 Form to an AEM 6.2 Eclipse project ?

      Is it possible to “transfer” an AEM Form from a Server into Eclipse ?

      For example, I have created a simple “Hello Form” using the Server’s AEM Forms interface (http://localhost:4502/aem/forms).

      This creates the following paths on in the content repository :-

          /content/forms/af/HelloForm
          /content/dam/formsanddocuments/HelloForm

      If I create a package, add these two paths in the Edit Package Filters tab, build the package, and download the package, then I have the following files :-

          ./jcr_root/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/formsanddocuments/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/formsanddocuments/HelloForm/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/formsanddocuments/HelloForm/_jcr_content/renditions/cq5dam.thumbna il.140.100.png
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/formsanddocuments/HelloForm/_jcr_content/renditions/cq5dam.thumbna il.319.319.png
          ./jcr_root/content/dam/formsanddocuments/HelloForm/_jcr_content/renditions/cq5dam.thumbna il.48.48.png
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/.content.xml
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/.content.xml
          ./META-INF/vault/config.xml
          ./META-INF/vault/definition/.content.xml
          ./META-INF/vault/filter.xml
          ./META-INF/vault/nodetypes.cnd
          ./META-INF/vault/properties.xml    

      However, the following is EXCLUDED from the package :-

          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/guideContainer/layout
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/guideContainer/rootPanel/layout
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/guideContainer/rootPanel/items/guidetextdraw
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/cq:responsive/breakpoints/smallScreen
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/cq:responsive/breakpoints/phone
          ./jcr_root/content/forms/af/HelloForm/cq:responsive/breakpoints/tablet

      What is the best method or practise for adding an AEM Form to an AEM Eclipse project ?

      Is it possible to “transfer” an AEM Form from a Server into Eclipse ?

      Thanks,

      Robert
