I hear you but I'm not listening!



To start with a cliché once again; the world is changing and it is changing faster than we can keep up with. Together with all technological developments that follow each other in rapid succession, new companies are constantly coming up with or without those new technology with fresh and new innovative business models such as;

Bungalow, Renting a house or an apartment with Bungalow means every detail is taken care of, so you can focus on what really matters. You can expect a turn-key experience from the moment you arrive (bungalow.com).

How to create and display a Product Tree in Hybris Commerce

In this weeks blog I will show you how you can model and display a tree of products in Hybris Commerce.

The end goal is to present an overview of a training schedule to the end user. The schedule consists of training their prerequisite relations.

Note: I'm not talking about a tree of products, not a Product Hierarchies; which is something different in the SAP terminology. (A Product Hierarchy is a separate hierarchy to which products can be assigned. This can be helpful in building a catalog.)

The Product tree we are going to build shows relations between products, such as compound products (Product A contains Product B) or a training catalogue (Product A is a prerequisite of Product B).

We will render the tree with a cool javascript library: dagre-d3.
