Subject Re: Override / extend events
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 09:25:51 GMT

thank you for your answer, here's a detail by example:

1. The problem:
We have virtual products with more than 2k variants.
The default generated varianttree is way to big (3mb).

2. Our solution:
We list all variants in selects and verify the combination either on 
submit or by ajax.
The problem with this solution is the missing productId which is 
"needed" by addToCart.
We can get the productId by ajax, but there are clients without js..

My idea was to override addToCart, add the productId to the parameter 
and point the response to the overridden event (response type=request)
But then, i have to wrap HttpServletRequest... which is more a hack than 
a solution.

So, is there a clean way to do such things with events or do we have to 
search for another solution?

Yes, i know that - but if productId is not set for addToCart we get 
redirected to a form which asks for it.
