How to create a sling servlet with dynamic path

Updated: May 2

I recently worked upon a use-case where I had to register a sling servlet with dynamic paths, and following is how I implemented it:

To designate an ObjectClassDefinition to the Servlet which on save of the configuration, sets the servlet.servlets.paths property of the servlet.

@Component(service = Servlet.class)
@Designate(ocd = DynamicallyRegisteredServlet.Config.class)
public class DynamicallyRegisteredServlet extends SlingSafeMethodsServlet {

	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

	@ObjectClassDefinition(name = "DynamicallyRegisteredServlet", 
			description = "Servlet Path to register this Servlet")
	public static @interface Config {
		@AttributeDefinition(name = "Servlet Paths", 
			description = "sling.servlet.paths Property")
		String[] sling_servlet_paths() default { "/bin/aemblog/thisworks",
			"/bin/aemblog/thistoo" };
	protected void doGet(final SlingHttpServletRequest req, 
		final SlingHttpServletResponse resp) throws ServletException, IOException {
		resp.getWriter().write("Servlet Found");

Let's navigate to http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr, and checkout the configuration created. All the paths entered in this field can now be used to trigger DynamicallyRegisteredServlet

And that worked!
