e-commerce Shopping Cart implemetation using java servlets
Posted on 2000-04-27
WinNT and Sun Solaris.
Both using Apache 1.3.12 and JServ 1.1(servlet engine).
I am trying to build a very simple site for selling reports. Reports can either be purchased individually or via a monthly subscription. In both cases, the user needs to log in when he's ready to checkout.
I'm looking for both:
1) Is there a off-the-shelf shopping cart easily integrated into Apache and JServ and Oracle8i?
2) Is there a freely available shopping cart on the above platform (not using ASP) that I can examine and learn from.
----- A little background about the task ------
The user would navigate thru the site, selecting whichever reports she/he wishes. When the user is ready to checkout, she would click on the checkout link. At this point, the server determines whether the user is already logged in. If not, the server offers the user two options:
1. Purchase the reports individually (one time process).
2. Register for a monthly subscription. If the user already has a subscription, she would then be able to enter her userid and password.
In both scenarios, the server must remember the user's report selection(s).
Also, in both cases, the user must fill out (or already have) a profile.
