Week: 3 At a Glance > Advanced Techniques: E-Commerce Solutions

Day 20. Advanced Techniques: E-Commerce Solutions

What do you use your Internet access for? Browsing news and information? Investing online? No matter who you are, you've probably used your Internet account to purchase something online. If you own a business, you've almost certainly placed your products and services online—if not, you should. E-commerce is changing the way the world does business.

Today's lesson will expand upon the catalog system that we developed in Day 13, “Advanced Components: Catalogs, Searches,” by adding a shopping cart system. This presents several unique challenges that will have to be overcome in order to create a functional system. Today, you will learn

  • How to maintain individual user shopping carts. How do you keep track of a few thousand users, all with separate orders?

  • How to create an interactive cart that allows items to be removed as well as added.

  • How to retrieve stored user profiles to automatically fill out shipping/billing information when the order is completed.
