Using the Tools

The tools were designed to be very easy to use. They will only display conversions that are available based on configurations in the designated repository locations, or service configurations that result in a resource match.

Page Structure Conversion Tool

Page Structure Conversion Interface

The page structure conversion form input selects the root of a tree for finding pages.

The search results display a list of pages which match any configured rules. Each result lists the page’s title, repository path, template type, and links to view the page or it’s location via the CRX/DE Lite repository browser.

One or more pages can be selected for conversion, and once executed a success or error message is displayed indicating the status of the conversion.

Component Conversion Tool

Component Conversion Interface

The component conversion form input selects the root of a tree for finding components to convert. Input selection can either be a page’s jcr:content node, which will limit the search to that specific page, or a page itself, which will display all available components on that page and all of its descendants.

Search results list all components matching existing rules. Each result lists the repository path to the content, the component type, and links to view the content or it’s location via the CRX/DE Lite repository browser.
