E-commerce technologies enable enterprises to exchange information instantaneously, eliminate paperwork, and advertise their products and services to a global market. The Domino Server family, an integrated messaging and Web application software platform, is easy to build and manage integrated, collaborative solutions. In this project, I build a basic functional Domino-powered e-commerce application named E-Bookstore. The EBookstore web site contains three main components of an e-commerce web site (catalog of items, shopping cart, and checkout function), and provides a powerful search function to the customer. The unique session ID for each E-Bookstore web user is generated and stored, and is attached to every item a user adds to his shopping cart. This application also provides the back end maintenance functions such as add book category or book entry. Comparing to popular commercial software, the functions provided in E-Bookstore cover most of useful tools. The E-Bookstore, built on the Domino Application Server R5 platform, has a performance that scales appropriately as the amount of data set increasing and the whole system environment is security.
