This tutorial showed how you can customize the Catalog service to support the extended catalog entry information and to use the services from multiple channels. You learned to perform the following customizations:
- Update the WebSphere Commerce schema to store the new information.
- Customize the Catalog service to include the new information as user data in the CatalogEntry noun.
- Use the same service code no matter which channel the client is coming from.
