How to Customize/Configure the 404 error handler for multi sites in Adobe CQ5?

This post will explain how to configure the 404 error handler in multi site scenario - This will configure different 404 pages for different sites..

If the error handler is configured for first time then copy /libs/sling/servlet/errorhandler to /apps/sling/servlet (create the folder structure before copying )

Modify /apps/sling/servlet/errorhandler/404.jsp file to modify the 404 error handling rules.

<%  
//setting response code as 404
response.setStatus(HttpServletResponse.SC_NOT_FOUND);
try {
    String uri = request.getRequestURI();
         
    if(uri.matches("(/content/Sample/en/)(.*)"))
    {
        pageContext.include("/content/Sample/en/404.html");
    } else if(uri.matches("(/content/Sample/es/)(.*)"))
    {
        pageContext.include("/content/Sample/es/404.html");
    } else if(uri.matches("(/en/)(.*)"))
    {
        pageContext.include("/content/Sample/en/404.html");
    }
    else if(uri.matches("(/es/)(.*)"))
    {
        pageContext.include("/content/Sample/es/404.html");
    } else
    {
        pageContext.include("/content/Sample/en/404.html");
    }

} catch (Exception e) {

%>
        Page Not Found
<%
}

%>

The conditions can be added to handle different sites, if the sites are running on different virtual host names then get the server name from the request
(request.getServerName()) and add the condition based on the server name.

This will redirect the user to site specific 404 pages.

How to find the Email Group Id in Eloqua?

There will be different approach to find the Email Group id. Here. This post explains the approach used by me.
Use any of the REST client(here i am using Advance Rest Client)

Provide the below URL - https://secure.p03.eloqua.com/API/REST/1.0/assets/email/groups

Select the Http Method as GET

Provide the Authorization header

Authorization: Basic xxxxxxxxxxx

Replace xxxxxxxxxxx with base64 encoded string of companyName\userName:password

Send the request

The response will have all the Email Group id details - id and name of the Emial group can be found in the response.

{
  elements: [2]
  0:  {
         type: "ContactEmailSubscription"
         contactId: "1"
         emailGroup: {
             type: "EmailGroup"
             id: "1"
            depth: "minimal"

How to get the child Pages of a root Page through Java API - Adobe CQ5

public static PageFilter getPageFilter() {
PageFilter pf = new PageFilter();
return pf;
}

public static Iterator<Page> getPageIterator(Page page){
Iterator<Page> children = page. listChildren(getPageFilter());
return children;
}

Filter can be changed to restrict child pages e.g Get the child pages created only with the template "/apps/sample/templates/samplePage"

public static PageFilter getPageFilter() {
PageFilter pf = new PageFilter() {
public boolean includes(Page p) {
ValueMap props = p.getProperties();
String templatePath = props.get("cq:template",String.class);
if("/apps/sample/templates/samplePage".equals(templatePath))
{
return true;
} else
{
return false;
}
}
};
return pf;
}

How to find a Page has child Pages thorough Java API - Adobe CQ5

Finding a Page has children's:

How to send the email through Java API in Eloqua

This post explains how to send the email in Eloqua through java.

Create the required model classes.

public class EmailTestDeployment 

    public String contactId ;
    public String sendFromUserId ;
    public Email email;
    public String name;
    public String type;       

}

public class Email 
{
public int emailGroupId;
public RawHtmlContent htmlContent; 
public int id; 
public boolean isPlainTextEditable; 
public String name; 
public String plainText; 
public boolean sendPlainTextOnly; 
public String subject; 

}

public class RawHtmlContent 
{
    public String type;
    public String html;

}

RestClient class to connect to Eloqua.

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.net.HttpURLConnection;
import java.net.URL;

public class RestClient
{
    private String authToken;
    private String baseUrl;       
    public RestClient(String user, String password, String url)
    {
       baseUrl = url;             
       String authString = user + ":" + password;
      authToken = "Basic " + javax.xml.bind.DatatypeConverter.printBase64Binary(authString.getBytes());           
    }             
                          
    public String execute(String uri, String method, String body)  throws Exception
    {
       String response ="";
       try
       {           
          URL url = new URL(baseUrl + uri);
          HttpURLConnection conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();                         
          conn.setInstanceFollowRedirects(false);
          conn.setRequestMethod(method.toString());
          conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json");
          conn.setRequestProperty("Accept", "application/json");
          System.out.println(authToken);
          conn.setRequestProperty("Authorization", authToken);         
                  
          if (method == "POST" || method == "PUT")
          {
              if(null != body){
                  conn.setDoOutput(true);
                  final OutputStream os = conn.getOutputStream();
                  os.write(body.getBytes());
                  os.flush();
                  os.close();
               }
           }
                      
           InputStream is = conn.getInputStream();
           BufferedReader rd = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader( is));
           String line; 
           while ((line = rd.readLine()) != null)
           {
               response += line;
           }           
           rd.close();
           conn.disconnect();
         }
         catch (Exception e)
         {
            throw e;
         }
       return response;
      }

}

The Helper class to send  the email – Change the Eloqua credential accordingly.


import com.google.gson.Gson;
import models.Email;
import models.EmailGroup;
import models.EmailTestDeployment;

public class EmailHelper
{
   private RestClient client;
        
   public EmailHelper(String site, String user, String password, String baseUrl)
   {
      client = new RestClient(site + "\\" + user, password, baseUrl);
   }                
            
              
   public void sendEmail(String contactId, String emailID,String emailGroupId) throws Exception{
  
  try
  {
Gson gson =  new Gson();
 
EmailTestDeployment deployment = new EmailTestDeployment();
 
Email email = new Email();  
email.name = "sampleemail1";
email.id = Integer.parseInt(emailID);
email.emailGroupId = Integer.parseInt(emailGroupId);
 
deployment.contactId = contactId;
deployment.email=email;
deployment.name="Email Deployment";
deployment.type = "EmailTestDeployment";               
String requestBody = gson.toJson(deployment);
String sendEmailResponse = client.execute("/assets/email/deployment","POST",requestBody);
if(sendEmailResponse==null)
{
throw new Exception();
}
  }catch(Exception e)
  {
  throw e;
  }
}
              
     public static void main(String[] args) {
                              
    EmailHelper helper=new EmailHelper("companyname", "username", "password", "https://secure.p03.eloqua.com/api/rest/1.0");
        try {
            helper.sendEmail("109", "62","1");;
        } catch (Exception e) {
          // TODO Auto-generated catch block
          e.printStackTrace();
         }
                              
   }

}

Email will be send based on the subject line and email content configured in the Eloqua Email.

We can change the subject line and email content from the java code.

//Email subject
email.subject="Sample Email";

//Email content - plain text
 email.sendPlainTextOnly=true;
 email.plainText="Sample content";

//Email content - html

email.sendPlainTextOnly=false;
 RawHtmlContent content=new RawHtmlContent();
content.html="<html><head></head><body>test</body></html>";
 content.type="RawHtmlContent";
 
email.htmlContent=content;
