  1. Good Post!
    I have a query - Post installing Endeca 11.3 , discover-cas based application, we are trying to invoke it via service, by just trying to assemble content, something like :

    Assembler assembler = assemblerFactory.createAssembler();
    ContentItem contentItem = new ContentInclude("pages/browse");
    ContentItem responseContentItem = assembler.assemble(contentItem);



    But this fails throwing a NPE while getting siteRootPath:

    Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
    at com.endeca.infront.navigation.event.NavigationEventWrapper.getSiteRootPath(NavigationEventWrapper.java:401)

    Would you be able to help, whats going wrong in the above? Any other configuration required?

    1. Hi Devika,

      Older version of endeca was not having the site id so pages/pagemane used to work but after 11.1 site id is required so query should be pages/<>/pagename. I hope this helps.

      Thanks,

    4. Ideally you do not need to provide the siteid and /pages from ATG, it should be just /browse and as part of new code, DefaultSiteParser parse the siteid from atg and append the /pages/site-id in front of /browse.

      Thanks,

  2. Thanks for responding Ajay. I agree with you. We aren't using atg. Trying to invoke assembler via spring boot based service,hence getting stuck here..

    1. Even for spring boot this should work, what are you trying this for? OOTB discover service application has assembler configured and have BasicActionPathProvider implementation. This class gets the sitestate object passed in assembler-context.xml, can you help me get the code so that i can have clear understanding?

  4. Thanks Ajay, I could get this sorted, there was some issue with RequestEventInitializer entry in assembler-context.
