Child Resource From Request Injector

Available since version 4.2.0

Purpose

This injector is similar to the standard @ChildResource injector provided by sling, but with a key difference in that it uses a mock request object pointed to the resource path as the adaptable, allowing the sling model to reference the request and other sling bindings not otherwise accessible when adapting a resource directly. This is particularly useful when injecting instances of WCM Core components, which are generally not adaptable from Resource and thus fail to inject via the standard @ChildResource injector.

How to Use

The feature is very similar in usage to the standard ChildResource annotation.

Example

@Model(adaptables = {SlingHttpServletRequest.class})
public final class ParentModel {
    @ChildResourceFromRequest
    private ChildModel child;

    @ChildResourceFromRequest
    private List<ChildModel> childList;
}
