Subject [jira] [Commented] (SLING-8655) Add an Annotation to Sling Model to mark a property to be Externalized
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2019 08:10:00 GMT


Radu Cotescu commented on SLING-8655:

[~schaefa], I quickly reviewed the PRs and I'm not really convinced we need an injector +
a new API for this use-case. IMO link externalization cannot be solved with a one-bullet solution.
It's a personal opinion, but I really like what Provision has done at [1] and I think that
externalization is a site-specific task (contrary to instance-specific). Continuing this reasoning,
I'd suggest to handle externalization directly in the application code.

For JSON you could build your own JSON serializer and mark the path properties as being serialized
with it.

> For Peregrine CMS we use Sling Models to obtain data in JSon format to be rendered on
the client side. This means that the returned content is not externalized aka paths are not
mapped to the external view.
> Sling Model should have an Annotation (@ExternalizedPath) that marks a property to be
externalized when loaded.
> In order to be flexible the Externalized Path Injector should be pluggable so that customers
can add their custom Externalized Path Providers if they choose to do so. By default there
is a provider that uses the Resource Resolver's map() function.
