Installed the pet store and have been screwing around with it. The database is populated from an XML file, but going forward, how would you excercise inventory management? If you had a hundred products to manage, how would you mix and match .jpg's, product categories, ProductID's and all that jazz? Are you supposed to just edit the database manually for product updates?

Welcolme to the JavaRanch, Mark! Do keep in mind that the Petstore application was designed to demonstrate a wide variety of features and design patterns instead of fulfilling a real customer's needs.
