Solving a Common Problem with AEM and Windows Services

    January 31, 2017 10:19 AM by Scott Ross

    You decided to take the plunge and invested in a full stack AEM development environment.  To keep things compact, AEM author, publisher, and dispatcher are installed on a single server.  Because you care, you have taken the extra time to set AEM to run as Windows services. 


    Great job.


    Everything is working as expected.  Development workflow has improved and best of all your team can finally test client libraries and caching behaviour in a real world setting.

Or you’re organization is a bank and you have a need to control internal access but you also want to allow your clients to access their own documents in a secure manner.

    That’s a wrap: A cost-effective alternative to replacing your legacy system (Part II)

    To continue discussing the Adobe AEM wrapper let's take a "technology view" on the problem.

    The AEM wrapper approach involves three elements:

    • An AEM Forms or AEM Sites user interface, which supports desktop, tablet and mobile devices

    That’s a wrap: A cost-effective alternative to replacing your legacy system

    November 2, 2016 11:05 AM by 4Point

    With all the recent advances in technology, we may discount the value of our legacy systems. Based on old technology, these systems are considered incapable of meeting today’s business needs, and many argue they should be replaced. In some cases, that’s true.
