Best Practices Analyzer for AEMaaCS Migration

Published
Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) evaluates the current AEM implementation, identifying areas not in alignment with AEM best practices and offering guidance on how to improve. It also expedites the assessment of readiness for transitioning from an existing Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) deployment to AEM as a Cloud Service. This tool generates a report pinpointing potential areas for refactoring, marking the initial phase of migrating to AEM as a Cloud Service.

Project Lombok in AEM Projects

Published
In AEM backend Java development, Sling Models are utilized to retrieve dialog values using annotations. However, writing boilerplate code such as getter methods for passing these values to HTL can be tedious. To simplify this process, Project Lombok can be integrated, automatically generating the necessary boilerplate code with annotations like @Getter. This streamlines development tasks by eliminating the need for manual getter method creation.
