Adding a new attribute to edit view area in Product Cockpit.

I was working on a Project and there was a requirement to add a new attribute in edit view area In Product Cockpit.

I followed these few step to do this task.

1.Create a new Model e.g MyProduct that extends ProductModel in Items.xml, add attribute in this model e.g:

“<itemtype code=”MyProduct” extends=”Product”>
<description>my product that contains additional attributes.</description>
<attribute qualifier=”attribute1″ type=”localized:java.lang.String”>
<description>example for product cockpit</description>

after this,Build the project and start the server, do Update running system from Hac.

Add some product in your “Myproduct” Model.

2.Create  a editorArea_MyProduct.xml file in your Cockpit extension and add key for new attribute in xml file


3. Localized the key name in and file.



4.Restart the server and do update from HAC. Open ProductCockpit in url “http://localhost:9001/productcockpit&#8221; and search your product which you added in “MyProduct” model .

5.Open that product and in left side you will find your new attribute in Editor_area.
