Adding a custom thumbnail to Adobe AEM project
1) Create a picture named thumbnail.png. The recommended dimensions are 64 x 64 pixels.
2) Place the thumbnail in the vault definition folder.
3) Update the ui.apps pom.xml to include the definition folder.
When building the package the maven content-package plugin will compile the files and folders inside the ui.apps project into an AEM package. You can direct it to use the custom thumbnail by updating the <build> tag in the ui.apps/pom.xml
<build> <resources> ... <resource> <directory>src/main/content/META-INF/vault/definition</directory> <targetPath>../vault-work/META-INF/vault/definition</targetPath> </resource> ... </resources> </build>
4) Deploy your AEM package.
mvn -PautoInstallPackage clean install
To verify that it works, go to the Package Manager and search you project package. It should be set with the new icon.
