Subject Re: Attaching files to a product

first I suggest you read the Data modeling books, though content 
component is not covered.
Book II has to-do with engineering.
There is a discussion on the dev list about documents in ofbiz.
Most system I have dealt with have paper drawing or Microfiche.
Look at vol II page 37 part specification and documentation.
specifically Document.
you can use the Document.imageData for scan sheets.
you can add a an new entity that is a relationship between documents and 
the information in a external system or want use the content component 
through dataresources.

useful for a client wanting to change a piece, I think.

list didn't seem to point directly to that, and/or suggested that I couldn't just configure
it on OFBiz out of the box without messing around with the code a little bit.
