    Posted by Loni Stark

    We live in interesting times when it comes to our relationship with other people through their digital devices. Increasingly, the interactions, conversations and bonds companies form with their customers are happening digitally. What started as a trickle to websites through desktop computers has grown into a stampede across glass screens of all shapes and sizes on devices that are tucked neatly in back pockets, span a wall at a venue or are strapped to our wrists.

    AEM Forms: Using Custom Widget in Adaptive Form

    Posted by deepakk

    Sometimes, customers want to use more sophisticated widgets while capturing data from the end user in order to improve their overall data entry experience. For example, instead of making user type the digits for numeric fields, customer might want to show a slider to capture data. Similarly, they might want to present data in more intuitive way to end user like when showing the address to end user, they might like to show him the address on map instead of just as text. 

    Adaptive Forms allows developers to build custom widgets which can integrate with rest of the Forms eco system and still support all the business rules (aka expressions) that Form Author might write for that field. Once a developer deploys these custom widgets, AEM Form author can easily enable that for any particular form field using Adaptive Form Field properties Dialog in Form Authoring mode. The widget framework has been taken from AEM XFA HTML5 Forms (aka AEM Mobile Forms), the approach to use the custom widgets is same as in Adobe XFA HTML5 Forms. The XFA HTML5 Form Widget Specification provides good details about Widget Framework. One can use reuse existing jquery or other ui widgets by creating a wrapper around those widgets that adheres to the Form Widget specification. This specification provides a basic widget(abstractWidget) and defines certain function that custom widget may override and certain events that it should dispatch, more details here.

    It’s Just a Web Server – A Plea for Simplicity

    I’m currently working on my keynote for next week’s Connect – Web Experience 2014 conference in Basel and very much looking forward to it! Last year’s conference was excellent, and this year’s schedule looks very exciting.

    My keynote is about the value of simplicity in software – including a few tales from the trenches.

    We like to think of what we build with AEM as large enterprise systems, with complex requirements. Intricate workflows. Rocket science.

    However, when you think about it, our systems are “just” HTTP request processors, that manipulate atomic pieces of content in a content repository.

    The Luxury of Choice and Personalization

    Posted by Tatiana Mejia

    Imag­ine arriv­ing at the Bel­la­gio in Las Vegas. A friendly bell­man smiles and rushes to take your bags. The front desk clerk wel­comes you by name and hands you keys to a pool­side suite. In your room a wel­come packet is wait­ing for you, sug­gest­ing activ­i­ties tai­lored to your inter­ests. Dur­ing din­ner the som­me­lier rec­om­mends a new vin­tage the staff is sure you’ll love. They all remem­bered and you feel like a rock star.

    Can you pic­ture it? Although few of us have stayed at a 5-diamond prop­erty, we all can imag­ine what that expe­ri­ence would be like. Per­son­al­iza­tion is the hall­mark of lux­ury in travel and entertainment.

    In fact, per­son­al­iza­tion is listed as one of the top cri­te­ria when AAA grants a 5-diamond rating:

    CONNECT Web Experience 2014 - An AEM Developer Conference

    Posted by John Fait

    CONNECT Web Experience (formally CQCON) is less than 2 weeks away and I'm thrilled to be presenting this year. I'll be speaking about developing interactive content-centric mobile apps with Adobe Experience Manager’s (AEM) Integration with DPS.

    Not so long ago AEM shipped with a new mobile channel for your AEM content and there's more on its way in the AEM6.0 release. This integration can help extend your branded experience across mobile devices and build better brand loyalty. AEM's integration with DPS provides AEM authors a cost-effective method to create, manage and produce content-centric apps for mobile.

    I hope you'll join me at CONNECT Web Experience in Basel on the 25th and 26th of June where I’ll be discussing the DPS integration in more detail. We'll take a look the solution's architecture and how it uses and extends existing and familiar AEM concepts such as Mobile Content Sync, MSM and more.  I'll dig into how Content Sync works and contributes to AEM's mobile offerings and introduce the new multi-folio support. We'll also build mobile/folio optimized components to make delivering to multiple device much easier in a responsive and adaptive way.

    You can learn more about the event, read up on all of the sessions, and register to attend here. You will even have the opportunity to prove your expertise.  Adobe is offering an AEM Developer Certification Exam Session on 24th June learn more here.

    I hope to see you in Basel the birth place of AEM!

    50 First Impressions

    Posted by Tatiana Mejia

    I love the movie 50 First Dates, and not just because I am a closet Adam San­dler fan. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s a movie about a girl with no short-term mem­ory who meets a guy deter­mined to make her fall in love with him, no mat­ter how many times she for­gets him.

    I love this far-fetched sto­ry­line because it draws some strange par­al­lels to my daily life as a dig­i­tal mar­keter think­ing about cus­tomer expe­ri­ence. A cus­tomer inter­act­ing with you on social media for­gets or at least is eas­ily dis­tracted. Peo­ple might ask a ques­tion on Twit­ter, par­tic­i­pate in a Face­book con­test, and then repin one of your prod­ucts on their Pin­ter­est page—all before they browse your site. They come back a few times, but to them, it might still feel like their first inter­ac­tion with your brand.
