    Hello there,
    am relatively new to orocommerce application and not so conversant with symfony.

    I need to create a service that retrieves product data from the database and sends to my layout.
    Pls, how do I go about it?
    Is there an orocommerce service that already exists that I can use?

    Hello,

    the get information from DB you should use Repository, in your case it would be ProductRepository.
    Please check symfony doc: https://symfony.com/doc/2.8/doctrine.html#fetching-objects-from-the-database to get more info how to use Repositories.

    Best,
    Martin

    It depends on what and how you are trying to do, but if you have chosen the approach similar to the default OroCommerce theme, you can use the existing macros from OroProductBundle::image_macros.html.twig to do it for you. For example, here is how it is done in the default theme:

    Thanks a lot.
    Is there an alternative way to do that?
    This is my code

    And this is my twig file

    Is there some specific reason you do not want to use the existing macros?
    As an alternative way you can probably check what the Twig functions called in these macros do, and reimplement them yourself, but I do not see any benefits to such approach.
