Considerations

  • (AEM forms on JEE only) The Document Security module does not use Content Repository. It implies, if you are using only Rights Management or Document Security and do not plan to use Workspace, HTML5 forms, and adaptive forms, you need not install Content Repository.
  • Supported repository types for AEM 6.1 forms:
    • Cluster-based installations: For cluster-based installations, you can use RDBMK and MongoDB. In RDBMK, AEM 6.1 forms supports Oracle 12c and DB2 10.5 via a gated program. Contact Adobe support for detailed information on using RDBMK in a production environment.
    • Single-server installations: For single-server installations, you can use TarMK, RDBMK, or MongoDB.

Note: You can install all the modules of AEM forms on all the supported Storage & Persistence types (TarMK, RDBMK, and MongoDB).
