Subject Re: Question regarding Catalog management in Ofbiz
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 17:33:01 GMT
the rollup is like a linkilst instead of DB relationships.
there for it needs to be walked through.
Since not all Catagories have a rollup you start with the main category.
However what scott suggested about a view entity would give you the Id's
in each. what it will not give, is you all the ID that don't have rollup.
