Is there any list which references which CIL contains which classes?

Official CD API documentation states which class is in which package, but not which class is in which .jar file.

This is really unpractical because if I want to import some class to my solution, I must check in which package it is, and then search through all .jar files for that package.

It was easy in 2013 since there were only few .jar files, but with the new architecture, there are significantly more, so searching is quite difficult and impractical.

    Do you use Maven and cil from Maven Central? That should automatically solve it for you.

  • I would recommend referring to the installation media folder SDL Web 8.5\SDL Web 8.5\Content Delivery\roles\api\rest\java\lib, get all the jars and dependencies listed and required for CIL to work with web apps, same if you use XPM, UGC, XO, and ADF refer to the corresponding web-extensions and rest lib jars and config files and dependencies to work with, you can import all the sdl related jars to your local repository, third-party jars you can import from maven with corresponding versions then it will resolve your issues.

  • Actually @Velmurugan, this is exactly what i want to avoid. I thought that entire purpose of separating classes into numerous .jars was to use just ones you need, not all. This way I am back to square one.

There isn't a list, but there is way (in Eclipse), which can help you determine where class is locating

  1. Go to the Navigate menu,
  2. Open Type... (or Ctrl-Shift-T),
  3. Then type in the class name and see the list of possible jars where it could be coming from.

Hope it helps.
