How to force a recompilation of all Sling scripts jsps, java, and sightly in AEM 6.5
Sometimes the JSP, HTL clientLibs, or classes will not get recompiled automatically in Adobe Experience Manager(AEM). Strange UI issues can occur and compilation errors may be seen in the logs. Now, we do not have libraries under /var/clientlibs folder anymore, they are in the file system.
1. Recompile via AEM Web Console:
2. Recompile via the file system
For classes, JSPs and Slightly cache:
find launchpad/felix -path "*/bundle*/data/classes" -type d
Note: Classes and Slightly cache is stored in the Apache Sling Commons FileSystem ClassLoader bundle. You can also check the bundle number in the AEM Web Console and access that folder directly on the file system under crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix.
find launchpad/felix -path "*/bundle*/data/outputcache" -type d
*Note:*Clientlibs is now stored in the Adobe Granite UI Clientlibs. You can also check the bundle number in the AEM Web Console and access that folder directly on the file system under crx-quickstart/launchpad/felix by going under same bundle.
Shell script cq-force-recompilation64.sh to automate the recompile process on AEM 6.4 Example arguments: ./cq-force-recompilation64.sh crx-quickstart/ http://localhost:4502 admin:admin
