CQ Cloud Manager is here!

- Samartha Vashishtha

Adobe has announced the general availability of CQ Cloud Manager, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that enables reduced time and costs for provisioning, managing, and metering Web Experience Management (WEM) solutions supporting digital marketing initiatives. Cloud Manager takes advantage of cloud computing technology, such the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud, to start up CQ clusters quickly and consistently.

Using CQ Cloud Manager, Digital Marketing organizations can provision and deploy instances of their Web environment without having to procure hardware or pay large upfront costs. This ease of provisioning allows enterprises to rapidly engage customers, drive market shares, and focus on innovation.

The infographic below captures the overall CQ Cloud Manager framework:

Creating an Adobe CQ web application that uses MySQL

- Scott Macdonald

You can create an Adobe CQ web application that performs database operations on a relational database. For example, you can create an Adobe CQ web application that retrieves data from MySQL and displays the data in a JSP. The following illustration shows data being retrieved from a relational database and displayed in a JSP.

You can create an OSGi bundle that can be used within the Adobe Digital Marketing Suite by using CDXDE. An OSGi bundle is essentially a Java module that contains application logic that meets your business requirements. An OSGi bundle lets you dynamically load, unload, configure, and control the Java module without restarting the server. CRXDE is the IDE that lets you develop applications for Adobe CQ (part of the Adobe Digital Marketing Suite).

The OSGi component that is created in this development article contains Java JDBC application logic that retrieves data from MySQL. (This OSGi component corresponds to the JDBC Java code shown in the previous illustration.) To keep this article simple, the MySQL database is named bank and contains a single table named user. The user table contains two fields named id and name. This development article guides you through how to create an Adobe CQ application that displays data located in the user table in a JSP.
