Java Cart About This Cart
About This Cart - An open source, uncomplete, shopping cart design kit.
How it began.
In the spring of 2004 I decided that if I wait until I have a full year to devote to the cart I'll never get around to it. Meanwhile, I have a nice start to a shopping cart on my hard drive, where it can't possibly do anyone any good.
So, I'll put it online for anyone to see, use, and criticize.
What it is:
There are excellent e-commerce solutions that do work right out of the box, and I have a page devoted to discussing some of them.
What it can handle:
Note that when designing a shopping cart or ecommerce solution the actual "cart" is only the beginning of the system. Just to list a few things:
If you have items with inventory, you need a system to track changes to invetory from customer purchases, customer returns, spoilage, new inventory added, and reconcilliation between stored and actual inventory
If you have products distributed online such as media or software you need a system to allow paying customers to access their purchases, while preventing others access to it.
And, you need a system to track any information you may need to about your customers accounts, etc.
This cart is shown using MySQL, but it should be able to work with any relational database.
This cart does not use Enterprise Java Beans. It does use a few Java Beans to cache information in the servlet context.
All java modules have been re-formatted to into my new screens, which means they are no more than 75 characters wide. If some of them look like I tried to go through all of these modules in a few hours and edit them down to size, it's because that's exactly what happened.

No, I never did any admin modules for this cart. Those are usually pretty complex, so I just never got to them. Thanks!
