Subject Re: Add To List is Working only for Virtual
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2009 08:53:58 GMT
Hello David,

Thanks for the Reply.

I was looking for that too, but this answer is a part of what i am 
expecting. because I am thinking of a product which is a little bit 
different from traditional product which we are using in e-commerce (i 
think so, but may be i am wrong to).

the product is such as :-* configure product, associate with virtual 
product having some optional feature and also follow the

is this scenario present in OOTB, for such kind of product (i am not 
able to find) or any body is working on it.

Please let me know, if i am thinking wrong or going in wrong direction, 
is this possible in ofbiz or not.

and the main problem is same as explained by Vivek.

Thanks & Regards
Arpit Singh Pandya
