Parameter List Utility - Description

Parameter List Utility creates generic data input files used by various web retail portals for inclusion of a website's product offerings. Output of Parameter List Utility is uploaded to the web portal service's server for integration into their product listings. The Item Information Dataset (IID) and Parameter List Utility's output Template is used to create this product's output file. Originally created to support Inktomi's web portal service, Parameter List Utility's output Template is customizable to meet the formats of most web portal service. This product may also be used to generate data migration files from the IID.

Parameter List Utility is supported by configurations using either the flat file IID or SQL RDBMS data sources.
