      Creating a usable e-commerce application is a daunting challenge. There is so much to do, from the initial concept, through to designing and coding the application. This leaves a lot of scope for things to go wrong.

              What's great about this book?

      In this book we take all the hassle out of online shopping applications, by showing you how to plan your application, design the user interface and datastore, and code the entire thing. But it doesn't stop there - we provide the complete code for two complete shopping cart applications, customizable for your own needs.

              Subject area

      In this book we cover:

      Planning an e-commerce application

      Designing the application, from customer surveys and wireframe models, to UI design and prototyping

      Designing and implementing the databases that will hold your product and order information

      Implementing the Product Catalog, Shopping Cart, and Checkout system

              Who is this book for?

      This book is for any web professional who wants to implement a shopping site, or add e-commerce functionality to an existing site. HTML knowledge, as well as knowledge of one of the backend combinations (ASP/SQL Server or PHP/MySQL) is essential to get the most use out of this book.

      The handsome cover illustration was commissioned by glasshaus from Chris Bishop. Chris is a classically trained painter, designer, cartoonist and illustrator from the Washington DC area, and he has served as designer and illustrator for PBS Kids since 2000. Chris can be contacted at chris@chrisbishop.com, and invites you to review his illustration and design portfolio at superflygraphics, and his comic strips and fine art at chrisbishop.com.
