A product catalog is composed of related items that form an organizational and navigational framework, enabling customers to locate and purchase items. A product catalog is usually built from a hierarchical tree of categories and products.

This chapter discusses how to use the ATG Control Center (ACC) to create and modify a catalog for your commerce site. Note that this chapter assumes that you are using the default Core Commerce product catalog and the default repository editor. If the product catalog or repository editor has been customized at your sites, administering the catalog may work differently from the way this chapter describes.

Users who have Oracle Commerce Merchandising and ATG Content Administration create catalogs and populate them in a content management environment instead of the ACC, so only some of the sections in this chapter may be relevant. See the first two sections to learn about the commerce assets you will use and how to organize them in your catalog. See the Merchandising Guide for Business Users for information on how to work with catalogs in Merchandising.

Note: If you make changes to the product catalog on your staging server, run the AncestorGeneratorService before copying your changes to the live version. See Running Catalog Maintenance Services in the Core Commerce Programming Guide.
