Using Content Fragments and Content Services in AEM

Adobe Experience Manager stores content in a media-neutral way and provide simple ways to get the content exposed beyond the usage within AEM. AEM 6.3 Feature Pack for Content Services provides a set of capabilities to simply expose the content within AEM via API endpoints to other channels in JSON format.


AEM 6.3 GA’s Content as a Service (CaaS) capability is overridden with the new FP's (  cq -6.3.0- featurepack -19614 and  cq -6.3.0- featurepack -19008 )  

This set of Feature Packs includes enhancements to Content Fragments and Content Services capabilities. AEM Content Fragments now support structured content. Structured content relationships are especially important when delivering as Content Services to channels other than AEM pages.
