Increasing your velocity's velocity

  1. 1. Using new Velocity Tools Increase your Velocity’s Velocity #csuc13 @penny_kronz @hannon_hill
  2. 2. Locator Tool ● Velocity Tool that provides a way of retrieving specific content from the database ● Retrieves Page, Folder, File, Block, and Symlink content ● Allows for retrieval of content without an Index Block ● Does not necessarily require XPath knowledge #csuc13 @penny_kronz @hannon_hill
  3. 3. Are Index Blocks going away? No. Index Blocks will still be used for retrieving most content. Index Blocks can retrieve content and cache this content which will make them faster at providing the same content that the Locator Tool can.#csuc13 @penny_kronz @hannon_hill
  4. 4. Additional Velocity Tools • Global Variable o $currentPagePath o $currentPageSiteName • PropertyTool o outputProperties o isNull • #import directive #csuc13 @penny_kronz @hannon_hill
