    Implementing feature toggles in AEM

    • If needed, create the new aem-feature-toggles application by using adobe’s archetype
      mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate "-DarchetypeGroupId=com.adobe.granite.archetypes" "-DarchetypeArtifactId=aem-project-archetype" "-DarchetypeVersion=19" "-DarchetypeCatalog=https://repo.adobe.com/nexus/content/groups/public/" "-DgroupId=co.dlighthouse.aem.featuretoggles" "-DartifactId=aem-feature-toggles" "-Dversion=0.1.0-SNAPSHOT" "-Dpackage=co.dlighthouse.aem.featuretoggles" "-DappsFolderName=feature-toggles" "-DconfFolderName=feature-toggles" "-DartifactName=Feature Toggles Example" "-DcomponentGroupName=Feature Toggles Example" "-DcontentFolderName=feature-toggles" "-DcssId=feature-toggles" "-DpackageGroup=feature-toggles" "-DsiteName=Feature Toggles Example" "-DoptionAemVersion=6.5.0"
      
    • Create a new file named org.apache.sling.featureflags.impl.ConfiguredFeature-someFeature.xml inside your /apps/my-app/config folder
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <jcr:root xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0"
          xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0" jcr:primaryType="sling:OsgiConfig"
          name="some-feature"
          description="This is Some Feature"
          enabled="{Boolean}false"/>
      
    • First, Import the Features interface
      import org.apache.sling.featureflags.Features;
      
    • Inject it into the model by using the OSGiService annotation
      @OSGiService
      private Features features;
      
    • Add the code to enable or disable the new feature
      if(features.isEnabled("some-feature")) {
          //New functionality that is only enabled when the feature toggle is enabled
      }
      else {
          //Original functionality that is disabled when the feature toggle is disabled
      }
      
    • Build and deploy your application
      mvn clean install -PautoInstallPackage -Padobe-public
      
  3. 3.

    Configure the Feature Toggle in AEM

    • Go to the Felix console(/system/console/configMgr), look for ConfiguredFeature then click on the “someFeature”

      Enable the feature toogle and after that check that the new feature is working now
