Map multiple domains to one AEM instance

AEM which is based on Apache Sling [1] provides the necessary functionality through repository-based configuration. When resolving resources, these so-called mappings are applied.

The following example configuration is based on the Geometrixx website that comes per default with a AEM installation. The Geometrixx website is already multilingual and serves perfectly as example.

The goal is to configure these mappings:
Domain                     Content branch
www.geometrixx.fr/content/geometrixx/fr
www.geometrixx.de/content/geometrixx/de
These nodes have to be created in the default workspace of the repository via the CRX Content Explorer, required nodetypes in brackets:
1
2
3
4
5

7
/etc
   /map                       (sling:Folder)
      /http                   (sling:OrderedFolder)
         /www_geometrixx_fr   (sling:Mapping)
         /www.geometrixx.fr   (sling:Mapping)
         /www_geometrixx_de   (sling:Mapping)
         /www.geometrixx.de   (sling:Mapping)
2 mappings are required:
  • map the root context to the index-page of the language branch, e.g. www.geometrixx.fr --> /content/geometrixx/fr.html
  • map resources to the corresponding language branch
Following is the JSON representation of the configuration necessary to map these 2 domains (/etc/map/http.tidy.-1.json):
