AEM 6 introduced a new MicroKernel (MongoMK) which allows the use of MongoDB as a repository. Further MicroKernels may be added along the line but are not fully confirmed yet. In this article we will be looking at a very basic local MongoDB setup.
A simple and local MongoDB with AEM
Linux or Mac
Java 7 (preferably JDK and possibly from Oracle so you can make full use of JMX)
An AEM 6 license
An AEM 6 crx-quickstart jar
The mongodb binaries (linked below)
Follow the steps below to get an AEM author (or publish) up and running using a local MongoDB
5. now place your license.properties & AEM 6 quickstart jar in your base directory (in this case ./aem_600_mongodb)
6. extract the AEM 6 jar file (java -jar aem-184.108.40.20640515.jar -unpack)
7. edit the start script under ./aem_600_mongodb/crx-quickstart/bin and add the following properties
CQ_RUNMODE='author,crx3mongo' -> crx3mongo is added here
CQ_JVM_OPTS='-server -Xmx1024m -XX:MaxPermSize=256M -Djava.awt.headless=true -Doak.mongo.uri=mongodb://localhost:27017' -> -Doak.mongo.uri=mongodb://localhost:27017 is added here
8. once the above steps are completed go to your bin directory in your mongodb directory and start mongo db & tail the log
