Output Parameters


An array of content items in the current repository folder; set only if the input parameter getcontent is set to true.

Usage Notes

ContentFolderView provides access to the items and subfolders of an SQL content repository. You can use this servlet bean to iterate over a hierarchy of repository folders, starting from the folder specified by the input parameter folder. If this parameter is omitted, execution begins at the repository’s root folder.

You can also use this servlet bean with ContentDroplet to obtain the data of repository content items.

You must create the properties file for ContentFolderView in <ATG10dir>/home/localconfig/atg/dynamo/droplet and set it as follows:



The following JSP fragment can be included in a JSP that supplies page parameters that are used to set the ContentFolderView input parameters repository and folder.

<%@ taglib uri="" % prefix="dsp">
<% /* page takes two parameters, repositoryName and startFolder
      If startFolder is null, the servlet bean starts execution at the
      repository's root folder */ %>

<dsp:droplet name="/atg/dynamo/droplet/ContentFolderView">
  <dsp:param name="repository" param="repositoryName "/>
  <dsp:param name="folder" param="startFolder"/>
  <dsp:param name="getContent" value="true"/>
  <dsp:oparam name="output">
    <dsp:droplet name="/atg/dynamo/droplet/ForEach">

        <dsp:droplet name="/atg/dynamo/droplet/ContentDroplet">

          <dsp:param name="item" param="element"/>

        <dsp:include page="folder.jsp">
          <dsp:param name="testFolder" param="element"/>
