Checking this with internal expert!!
What version of Eclipse are you using? The fix was using Mars. I have never seen the Dynamic Web Module not able to be checked/unchecked in the Project Facets.
Also you might want to double-check that under Project Facets > AEM > the content sync root directory points the jcr_root directory ("src/main/content/jcr_root"). Here is the xml for the org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml if that helps to compare:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<installed facet="sling.content" version="1.0"/>
<installed facet="sightly" version="1.1"/>
<installed facet="java" version="1.7"/>
<installed facet="wst.jsdt.web" version="1.0"/>
Looks like you are not using the correct version of Eclipse. I tested this on NEON - it works fine.
I have followed the same instructions given in the article: Getting Started with AEM Sites Part 2 - Creating a Base Page and Template and it got worked for me many times.
However as Scott mentioned, please refer to the community HELPX article for the same for creating the project using Lazybones: Creating an Adobe Experience Manager project using Lazybones
Also, use latest eclipse version like Mars or Neon.
I am using Neon.3
smacdonald2008, thank you for your comment regarding "successfully deploy using Eclipse NEON and the LazyBone", unfortunately this is not the key issue for me. I want to be able to create JCR Nodes in Eclipse. The error occurs when you context-click on a folder within Eclipse and attempt to create a JCR Node, exactly as described in the tutorial, except that the solution from the tutorial does not work.
Ratna Kumar thank you for your comments however please note the problem that I'm having is not with creating the project and deploying it, the issue specifically is inability to use "Create Node" within Eclipse. This is a developer productivity issue affecting our entire team, as it forces us to go into CRX/DE to create nodes and then import them back into Eclipse. The error is in our real project, but it's the same as shown in the tutorial.
I verified the content sync points to src/main/content/jcr_root and org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml contains the same entries (except my Java version = 1.8).
Setup the project - as described in the Lazybone article.
Then switch to AEM Perspective. THen you can click on a location in the JCR and add a new node:
I created a new node of type nt:folder
When i run Maven from Eclipse - the node is imported into AEM,
Try to re-install the AEM DEV tool in Neon eclipse. It works.
The problem appears to be gone after the following updates are applied. The archetype has a lot of outdated references:
- maven-sling-plugin 2.2.0 -> 2.3.4
- htl-maven-plugin 1.0.6 -> 1.1.2
- maven-bundle-plugin 3.3.0 -> 3.5.0
- Do not upgrade: content-package-maven-plugin - stay on 0.5.1, because 1.0.2 causes other problems
- Eclipse Sling IDE Tools 1.1.0 -> 1.2.0
- Eclipse Neon.3 vs Oxygen doesn't seem to matter
Thanks for posting this - i have asked the author of this doc to look at making possible updates based on your post.
alexr2 to clarify, did updating those dependencies in WKND pom.xml fix the issue? Or were you experiencing this issue in your own project and updating those dependencies fixed it? You mention "the archetype has a lot outdated references" is that when creating a project using Lazybones or the using the Maven aem-project-archetype? Do you mind posting the relevant pom.xmls? Thanks!
hi dgordon86, we were experiencing this issue in our own project and updating the dependencies fixed it. The project was created by a colleague using the Maven aem-project-archetype version 12.
Here's the top-level pom.xml, the version which works fine: [XML] <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- | Copyright 2015 Adobe Systems I - Pastebin.com
