I am creating a "shopping cart" for my site. It really isn't a cart since there is nothing being purchased. It is more of a function to gather order details.
The product needs to be assembled in the order form and then added to the cart. Most of the stock/pre-made carts I have looked at out there all involve pulling an item from a database and adding it to the cart. Since every order is custom, I need to be able to dynamically build a product before adding it to the cart.
I was thinking about building this into the database I am using, building the order and putting each dynamic item in the cart via the database. I want to eventually get there, but not yet.
Does anyone have something quick and dirty in mind that could help shortcut through this without putting the order into a db? An example would help.
