Document Component

Class Name

The Document Component is implemented by the class



This class is used to make the content of a document available as a Java bean to the rendering template (JSP or FTL). Typically, the component parameter is used to identify the document. No redirection is done if no document can be made available.

Like that, the component is typically used to make additional content available for presentation on a page, while the Content Component is better suited for the main content of a page. Such additional content is typically presented in a side column or in the footer of a page.
