Subject feature category and feature configuration
Date Tue, 29 Jun 2010 18:58:01 GMT

Take for example I have the following virtual products and associated
variants with the shown features

polo shirt
  color:
      red...price $1
      green...price $2
  size:
      small...price $3
      medium...price $4
clown shirt
  color:
      red...price $5
      green...price $6
  size:
      small...price $7
      medium...price $8
dress pant
  color:
      red...price $9
      green...price $10
  size:
      small...price $11
      medium...price $12

All of these product variants use the same similar product feature
categories 'color' and 'size' and the features have differing pricing
depending on what virtual product it applies to.  Does that mean it is
necessary to create separate feature categories and associated features for
Polo shirt, Clown shirt, and dress pant as specified below?

ProductFeatureCategory:
  POLOSHIRT_COLOR
ProductFeature:
  POLOSHIRT_COLOR_RED
  POLOSHIRT_COLOR_GREEN
  POLOSHIRT_SIZE_SMALL
  POLOSHIRT_SIZE_MEDIUM

ProductFeatureCategory:
  CLOWNSHIRT_COLOR
ProductFeature:
  CLOWNSHIRT_COLOR_RED
  CLOWNSHIRT_COLOR_GREEN
  CLOWNSHIRT_SIZE_SMALL
  CLOWNSHIRT_SIZE_MEDIUM

ProductFeatureCategory:
  DRESSPANT_COLOR
ProductFeature:
  DRESSPANT_COLOR_RED
  DRESSPANT_COLOR_GREEN
  DRESSPANT_SIZE_SMALL
  DRESSPANT_SIZE_MEDIUM

If the above configuration is correct, does that imply that in practice,
features and feature categories easily grow to be very large and difficult
to manage?

Thanks
Wai
