Content loader disabled in 5.6.1

Content loader has been deprecated in CQ 5.6.1 which might create difficulty in uploading bulk contents in CRX. 

As per CQ documentation on, it is  suggested to use content loader in CRX but when you will try to find content loader at http://localhost:4502/crx/loader/index.jsp, you will encounter the error: message "Content Loader have been discontinued. 

Package manager is a built utility rather than import or bulk upload utility. So, it may not help.

Alternatives to upload (CSS, HTML and images) or simple content packages (without jcr:content):

1/ Use WebDav to simply move the files to CRX.
2/ Another option is to use an http client, curl for instance and the sling post servlet capabilities. see (1) for reference.
