>> Hi again!
>>
>> I'm looking for a way to attach pdf files (or any type of files) to a
>> product.
>>
>> I wish to be able to have our engineers link plans to parts, in such a
>> way that it would be very simple, viewing any product, to generate a
>> list of all the parts required to build it, and have access to all the
>> plans for our guys at manufacturing. It would eventually be useful for
>> a client wanting to change a piece, I think.
>>
>> Up to now, I have dabbled in the "Content" application, but I don't
>> think I have done it right. I wanted to create a new content type,
>> called "plans" or something, and be able to upload that extra piece of
>> information for each product based on the new content type I created...
>>
>> The idea is that the engineers could just attach the files themselves
>> with no intervention on my part whatsoever. Am I on the right track?
>> My googling around and searching on the mailing 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.
>>
>> Thanks again,
>>
>> Olivier
