Subject Re: 4.0 help with fedex servers, weighing, and printing labels
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2008 18:55:26 GMT
if you look in the products controller you will see the labels and track 
to the pages.
The shipper was defined at order time
that is what determines to use Fedex.

if you look at the fedex code you will see a lot of todo's
Not much has changed since 4.0
that is were the  communication with the fedex servers is done.
Wieghts have to be put in manually,OOTB, but there is a scale applet 
that is in the code you can integrate.

if you look at lines 917 to 926 they deal with return data from fedex
shipmentPackageRouteSeg.setBytes("labelImage", labelBytes);
is the label.

you can look in committs
to see what was done beyond 4.0
