no i have errors because i created an agenda type of page, then switched to draft site but it's not working. anyway I will focus on that later ; )

by saying not correct approach i mean that the product class it's such engraved into the module structure that it's not so clear to me if it's so extendable.... I would like to hear Jeda opinion on that since it's the one who coded the beta on SS 2.4

probably it would be an easy extension using the dataObjectDecorators... but product it's not a dataObject

This is something that needs to be changed. Apart from using DataObjectDecorators, it would be easier to manage products as data object then as pages, particularly for people will large selections.

Just to be clear You can use DataObjectDecorators on Pages. SiteTree (therefore Page) is a subclass of DataObject so you can decorate that just the same as you do a DataObject.

now that you mention it, ProductVariation is an extension of Dataobject and it' clearly in relation with Product. But how to add another extension and how to build a similar relation ? Like having a set of variations in ProductVariations (e.g. sizes) and having a color variations DataObjectDecorator so you can combine them on checkout?

I think that must be project options more generally, because if you think an option, like size, colour and so, you need a DataObject for each option.

Hi biapar,

It will be the Google group code. Nicolaas will be contributing to that code repository from now. We're just sorting out how we'll manage it all.
