In AEM, a Sling Servlet can be associated with a specific resource type by using the
@SlingServlet annotation and specifying the
resourceTypes property. This allows the servlet to handle requests for a specific type of resource and generate a response based on that resource type.
Here is an example of how to associate a Sling Servlet with a resource type in AEM:
- Create a Java class that extends either the
SlingAllMethodsServletclasses and override the
doPostmethod to handle the HTTP request and generate the HTTP response.
- Add the
@SlingServletannotation to the servlet class and specify the
resourceTypesproperty to define the resource type that the servlet should handle. For example:
@SlingServlet( resourceTypes = "myapp/components/myComponent", selectors = "mySelector", extensions = "html", methods = "GET" )
In this example, the servlet is associated with the
myapp/components/myComponentresource type and is configured to handle HTTP GET requests with the
.htmlextension and the
- Register the servlet as an OSGi service in the
src/main/java/META-INF/servicesdirectory, as described in the previous answer.
Once you have followed these steps, your servlet will be associated with the specified resource type and will be available to handle requests for that resource type. When a request is made for a resource with the specified type, the servlet’s
doPost method will be called to generate the response.
