Long DescriptionThe assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas forty years ago remains, and will always remain, indelible in the minds of those old enough to recall it. The youngest elected leader in American history, a charming man leading what seemed a charmed life, by general consensus a president whose administration, having survived its early crises, was now at last hitting its stride, was shot and killed by a sniper firing a mail-order rifle from the southeast corner of the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. So great was the shock that time seemed to freeze in the squinting glare of late-November sun. For four days in November 1963, the business of the nation ground to a halt. The coverage provided by The New York Times is still generally considered the most complete of its day. Almost miraculously, Times reporters, writers, and editors produced 250 columns, or about 200,000 words, on and about the very first day. The other three days were no less exhaustive. Through the combined efforts of, among many others, Tom Wicker, James Reston, Max Frankel, Anthony Lewis, Harrison Salisbury, A. M. Rosenthal, and Arthur Gelb, The Times covered history as it was happening, from the assassination to the funeral. Here were the first portraits of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, the earliest speculation regarding the prospects of Lyndon Johnson's administration, the immediate reaction from world leaders, and, perhaps most of all, the pulse of a populace reeling from an event that surpassed both understanding and belief. This commemorative volume provides a haunting, firsthand, and detailed chronology of the events that took place in Dallas and Washington from November 22 to November 25, 1963. Here is history being recorded in the moment---a recitation not just of facts but of emotions and reactions as they were being experienced. The clarity of the writing is matched only by the almost desperate intensity of its occasion. Getting all the news that's fit to print seemed the only way of keeping the world from spinning further into chaos; The Times 's coverage provided not just information but a sense of balance. Though no one would ultimately explain to everyone's satisfaction the why, the who, what, and how were brought with amazing speed and accuracy within our grasp. f0With an introduction by Tom Wicker and edited by Robert B. Semple Jr., Four Days in November is an extraordinary book. It will serve as an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to remember, to understand, and most of all to feel what it was like, minute by minute, detail by detail, while one of the most traumatic events in recent American history unfolded.

With version 3.2 comes a new way to handle product images. This should give you more control over the images you display.

Prior to version 3.2, you simply had to check for the existance of the product>image property. If it existed and was not blank, you could safely display the image. 

Starting with version 3.2, you may want to check one more field before you display the product image. Many API users wanted access to the pending images. The only reasonable way to do this was to add a new property named product>hasImage which can be one of four values.

If you are displaying the product images to your users and you DO NOT want to display pending images that have not been checked, you should only display the image if product>hasImage=Yes. If you want to show production and pending images, you can simply check the product>image property if you like. We suggest using product>hasImage as your main check and only display the image if it meets your needs. Here are samples of the JSON structure.

The property product>hasImage will always be regurned even if you specified a list of properties in the "get" string that does not include the image property. The main reason for this is that it is possible to calculate the image path on your side thereby saving the bandwidth of returning the image path.

If you want to calculate the path to the image on your end instead of requesting it from us, you can do this in two ways. 

  1. If product>hasImage=Pending then simply use the path https://eandata.com/image/pending/{13_digit_EAN}.jpg
  2. If product>hasImage=Yes then it gets a little more tricky. We split the images into subfolders because there are so many of them. To calculate the path start with the 13 digit EAN and split it up like this: https://eandata.com/image/product/{1st_3_digits}/{2nd_3_digits}/{3rd_3_digits}/{13_digit_EAN}.jpg

This should make interacting with product and pending images much easier for you. Look at the example JSON shown above for working exmples of image paths.
