I have an item which has the following source properties -
3)P_Image (Clob type) or url
I need to map these properties to endeca record properties. For image type, What should be right property type. Say for example I have item shoe,then shoe has - name,description,image,sku_id ,price etc and I need to show the image in search results.
How to achieve it ?Any idea on developer's studio configuration to achieve this ?
Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
From developer's studio you can only use Alpha,Integer,Floating Point, Geo code,DateTime Type.
It should be better you can create P_Image as alpha and assign path of image url.
When you are display record in front end you can get the value of P_Image property from presentation api.
Thanks a lot Sunil for you quick reply,
Can you please tell me what are the best practices to store images (means what could be the ideal repository where images will be stored)?
Is it in Endeca or some database or some WCM (Web content management software ) ?
Best practice for using image URL only or any other way out ?
I am bumping the question again for getting any input from you guys...
Best practice for indexing the images for an item (product) ? Should I index the url of the images or store the images in application level ?
Any idea from experts ?
