Part: VI Building Dynamic Web Pages > Adding Shopping Cart Functionality

Chapter 28. Adding Shopping Cart Functionality

IN THIS CHAPTER

Welcome to the chapter that covers the heart of all dynamic web applications: the shopping cart. Most dynamic web applications are created for the sole purpose of making money on the web. Let's face it—why go through all the work of creating a dynamic web application if you don't plan to make money through it? Sure, companies employ dynamic intranet sites and granted, there are still some (although very few) free web applications you can use. In the real world, however, dynamic web applications are created in an attempt to make money by selling merchandise on the web. Providing the capability to add items to a virtual shopping cart as you browse through a website is still very much a business that commands good money. Companies such as VeriSign, WebAssist, and LinkPoint charge to provide developers with the capability to add this virtual shopping cart functionality to their own websites. Fortunately for you, Dreamweaver comes through by providing the capability to interact with shopping cart features by using feature-rich extensions you can download from the Macromedia Exchange.
