|I tried to use a flat file with the ushopsearch1 applet to generate pages automatically. It only produces an empty page.|
I am using the flat file and the templates that came with the zip file. All keywords are present on the template_product file. No codebase error.
Another question comes to mind:
Where do I put in the info which input applet I want to use for the generated page?
Thanks for your help!

|Have you tried the Search/Browse applets straight out of the applet reference that was installed on your local computers when you unzipped/installed uShop 3.0? And if so, did they work when ran off of your local desktop computer?|
If they didn't work for you as-is, then are you seeing any error messages in your browser's status bar and/or Java console? That is, you may be running into a problem that we have had a few other reports about. Apparently some people when trying to run those applets off of their local desktop computer get some "security exception" error. We think this may be related to the browsers search paths on your local desktop computer but are still looking into it. In any case, those Seach/Browse applet should run fine for you as soon as you put them on your server and try them out from there.
Otherwise, if the Search/Browse applets did work as-is from your local desktop computer...but are not working in the new pages that you are developing, I'll need more information about your directory structure and HTML. Give me a test URL where I can take a look at it ... or send the info/html to us as firstname.lastname@example.org.
In regard to controlling which applet(s) is(are) used on the dynamically generated pages of the Search/Browse applets, at this time, those applets will be the uShopInput1, uShopInput3, uShopInput4, or uShopInput5 applets.... depending on the whether each item the data file has any options or not.

|- Yes I have tried the search applet straight out of the reference installed on my local computer and the applet is working.|
- When I run the search applet following error message appears at the bottom (Netscape only-IE shows only an empty page): ushopJSI stopped
- I put the applets on our server, the result is the same.
I will send two urlīs by e-mail so that you can check it out.

|From looking at your test site, I see that upon doing a search with the uShopSearch applet, the following error is displayed in the Java Console:|
uShop Message: Error reading template_product
So then I took a look at your HTML at it appears the "product_template" parameter of your search applet is missing the ".html".
So try changing the value of that parameter to:
And that should correct the problem.
