In this, the final chapter of the book, you’ll develop one last Web application: an e-commerce site that sells prints of art. Unfortunately, to write and explain a complete application would require a book in itself, and some aspects of e-commerce—like how you handle the money—are particular to each individual site. With these limitations in mind, the focus in this chapter is on the core e-commerce functionality: designing the database, populating a catalog as an administrator, displaying products to the public, creating a shopping cart, and storing orders in a database.
