Default Re: File Attachments Module - Importing links

At a first glance, the models created by file attachment module don't have many columns, so it might sound easy to write an importation module. However, there is
a difficulty.

The file attachment module creates tables "product_attachment_storages",
"product_attachments", "product_attachment_translations" and add a column to the table "product". And there are several "cascade relations". Because of these relations, the tables have to be updated in the right order.

Now, presumably a correct use of Doctrine would take care of "the right order", but I have never done this myself, so I don't know how easy or difficult to put all that in place.
