Resource Type Sling Servlet in AEM

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:

  1. Create a Java class that extends either the SlingSafeMethodsServlet or SlingAllMethodsServlet classes and override the doGet or doPost method to handle the HTTP request and generate the HTTP response.
  2. Add the @SlingServlet annotation to the servlet class and specify the resourceTypes property to define the resource type that the servlet should handle. For example:
        resourceTypes = "myapp/components/myComponent",
        selectors = "mySelector",
        extensions = "html",
        methods = "GET"

    In this example, the servlet is associated with the myapp/components/myComponent resource type and is configured to handle HTTP GET requests with the .html extension and the mySelector selector.

  3. Register the servlet as an OSGi service in the src/main/java/META-INF/services directory, 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 doGet or doPost method will be called to generate the response.
