          There is no out-of-the-box cartridge for product comparison as far as I'm aware, but it is pretty simple to implement - Endeca stores properties/dimensions against each record, so you just need to provide a mechanism for the customer to select the records to be compared, then either a way for the business to specify the attributes that should be displayed in the comparison rows, or alternatively dynamically display them (loop through each selected record and build a hashmap of all the dimensions/properties, then loop through this hashmap and write out the rows accordingly, including blanks if applicable or alternatively only rendering a row if all products/records have data for the corresponding property/dimension).
