    Exposing the model

    • Go to your IDE or editor and look for the model inside the core module, the model name is BasicModel and should be located inside the models package
    • First, let’s set the model’s adaptables to SlingHttpServletRequest and import the class
      @Model(adaptables = SlingHttpServletRequest.class)
    • Then we need to import and implement the ComponentExporter interface and also define the getExportedType method to return the name for the resource type associated with the basic component
      import com.adobe.cq.export.json.ComponentExporter;
      public class BasicModel implements ComponentExporter {
          public String getExportedType() {
              return "react-simple-example/components/basic-component";
    • Finally import ExporterConstants and the Exporter annotation, add the ComponentExporter as an adapter and define the resourceType. For the exporter set the name as SLING_MODEL_EXPORTER_NAME and the extension as SLING_MODEL_EXTENSION.
      import com.adobe.cq.export.json.ExporterConstants;
      @Model(adaptables = SlingHttpServletRequest.class,
              adapters = {ComponentExporter.class},
              resourceType = BASIC_COMPONENT_RESOURCETYPE)
      @Exporter(name = ExporterConstants.SLING_MODEL_EXPORTER_NAME, extensions = ExporterConstants.SLING_MODEL_EXTENSION)
    • Let’s build and deploy the app again
      mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -Padobe-public
    • Go now to the page edit the component make some changes and click save, the changes get reflected right away

House price prediction 3/4: What is One Hot Encoding

A series about creating a model using Python and Tensorflow and then importing the model and making predictions using Javascript in a Vue.js application, above is the vid and below you will find some useful notes. Here, in part 3 of this series, I will show what is and how does one hot encoding works. In the first post, called House price prediction 1/4: Using Keras/Tensorflow and python , I talked about how to create a model in python, pre-process a dataset I've already created, train a model, post-process, predict, and finally about creating different files for sharing some information about the data for use on the second part. Then in part 2, called House price prediction 2/4: Using Tensorflow.js, Vue.js and Javascript , I took the model, the data for pre and post processing and after loading everything we were finally able to predict
