"THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN E-COMMERCE
SITE FOR ONLINE BOOK SALES"The business-to-consumer aspect of electronic commerce (e-commerce) is the
most visible business use of the World Wide Web. The primary goal of an e-commerce
site is to sell goods and services online.
This project deals with developing an e-commerce website for Online Book Sale.
It provides the user with a catalog of different books available for purchase in the store.
In order to facilitate online purchase a shopping cart is provided to the user. The system
is implemented using a 3-tier approach, with a backend database, a middle tier of
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and ASP.NET, and a web browser as the
front end client.
In order to develop an e-commerce website, a number of Technologies must be
studied and understood. These include multi-tiered architecture, server and client side
scripting techniques, implementation technologies such as ASP.NET, programming
language (such as C#, VB.NET), relational databases (such as MySQL, Access).
This is a project with the objective to develop a basic website where a consumer
is provided with a shopping cart application and also to know about the technologies used
to develop such an application.
This document will discuss each of the underlying technologies to create and
implement an e-commerce website.""""""
