How to patch/hotfix your CQ5 website

You can use a package to patch your javascript, if you find a bug in production and dont want to perform a production deploy. In other words, if you need a quick fix…

  1. Make a package containing the file you wish to patch, perhaps a javascript file in your clientlibs, install it in the package manager in your production author.
  2. Go into CRX/DE, drill down to the file you are patching, click on it, click the replication tab, click replicate
  3. Go to the CQ welcome screen, Tools > Replication > Activate Tree > Drill down, select file, activate
  4. Update cachebreaker which will force clientlibs to recompile
