    WebSphere Commerce version 9.0.1.0 has been released!

    • Increased flexibility of catalog management with product variantsWebSphere Commerce Version 9.0.1.0 introduces a three-tier product model for more versatile product management. In the traditional model, the product class contains attributes without content, with SKUs containing information on particular products. Beginning with Version 9.0.1.0, you can define product variants that collect similar product attributes into one item. For example, instead of having only the product categories 'dresses' and individual SKUs with attributes such as color and length, you can define a variant such as 'red dresses' or 'full-length gowns.' Product variants let you target sales, promotions, and other actions more precisely and easily.
