When starting a new CQ5 project, setting up a Maven POM with project dependencies can be an unnecessarily time-consuming task. Dependencies specified in the POM file must match those provided by the CQ5 OSGi container to prevent deployment and runtime issues, and the process of manually extracting Maven metadata from OSGi bundles in the Felix console is tedious and error-prone. We can do better, and fortunately, Adobe has provided the Maven Archiva Servlet to streamline this process.

I find that when organizations implement a digital strategy, it often lacks (what I believe is) a critical distinction between “content management” and “content experience.” Usually a primary purpose of digital strategy is to distribute content directly to those who will find it most relevant. When the content reaches someone who finds it immediately relevant, passive content consumption turns into engagement. Ultimately, the goal is to turn that engagement into some kind of conversion that correlates with a facet of the content distributor’s overall strategy. In other words: good content, delivered to the right people will help you sell whatever it is you want to sell.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Everyone on the planet has heard this Chinese proverb in some form. I believe it to be the fundamental philosophy behind the concept of a web content management system. WCM is about empowerment. It’s about enabling the experts in communication to optimize how they use the web as a platform for that communication. It’s about getting the technology out of their way without taking it away. It’s about enabling (buzzword alert) communication agility.

It's been over a year since the initial release of the CQ5 Groovy Console, and we've since added a significant number of new features and enhancements to improve the usability of the tool. Version 2.0.0 was released this week; some highlights are listed below:

What is it? If you blinked you might have missed it in the release notes but Adobe CQ 5.5 supports including LESS files along with your CSS in ClientLibs. If you are not familiar with LESS, it basically makes stylesheets more powerful by adding programming language-like features such as variables, functions, mixins, etc. It is very similar to Sass or Stylus if you have ever used those.

There are hundreds of different content management systems out there, all claiming to be the best, fastest, coolest, whatever. I’ve worked with a few different ones, including some crazy homegrown systems, but most of my experience is with Adobe CQ5. If you are interested in the big wide content management world, I recommend trying to get your hands on CQ5. The fundamental architecture (Apache Sling, Adobe CRX) is really fun and really powerful.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) introduced a new feature today that takes aim at backup solutions and other types of cold storage. With Amazon Glacier, you can store data at costs as low as $0.01 per gigabyte per month ($0.011 to store in California/Ireland and $0.012 to store in Tokyo). You can store a little or you can store tons since you only pay for what you use – no capacity planning needed here. On the backend, Glacier will perform integrity checks of your data and the service is said to provide an average annual durability of 99.999999999% (that’s nine 9’s).

In the first post of the series I have since affectionately titled "Semantic Sling," I took a rather hypothetical look at serving Linked-Data out of the Sling server and whether Sling and JCR exposed any functionality which facilitated such service. This analysis took the form of a mapping between the tenets of Linked-Data and the capabilities inherent to Sling and JCR. Of all the tenets, number three was underserved by both directly, though I did indicate that functionality present in both could be built upon.
