    Creating an Estore From the Ground Up


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Creating an estore is a great way to get your products online and up for sale. As a matter of fact, it is pretty much the only way that you are going to get your products for sale online. Sure, you could list them on someone else's estore collaboration site, but then you are going to have to either give a cut of your sales to the company, pay an annual fee, or worse, do both of these. Since we can assume that you are in business to make money for yourself and not your estore site company, we are going to look at how you can create your own estore from the ground up.

    It's not really as complex or as expensive as it sounds. We can have the basic store set up and running in less then a day. Then all you will have to do is put your products into the shop, find a host and get up and running. 

    Of course, code may not be on your list of things to do today, so we will explore some of your no-code options that will give you what you need without any hassle. They can be customized to your liking in most cases, however, at least from a visual point of view.

    Now, without further ado, let's take a look at some of your options for creating your own estore from the group up without too much hassle. 

    Step One: Creating the Catalog of Items

    Whether you are creating handcrafted soaps or industrial grade paver tools, you will need an online catalog. This is your way of making people aware of your wares and the selection that you offer. A catalog provides your end users with a framework that allows them to shop easily in an organized manner. It lets items be grouped or sorted according to any number of preferences or needs. If you want to get a basic catalog style site set up you can use this bit of Java.

    To create the item template body*:

    <%@ page errorPage="errorpage.jsp" %>

    <%@ page import="com.sun.estore.control.Web.ScreenNames" %>

    <%@ taglib uri="WEB-INF/tlds/taglib.tld" prefix="j2ee" %>

    <%@ include file="ScreenDefinitions.jsp" %>

    <HTML >

         <head>

              <title>

                  <j2ee:insert template="template"

                       parameter="HTML Title" />

              </title>

         </head>

         <body bgcolor="white">

              <j2ee:insert template="template" parameter="HTML Banner" />

              <j2ee:insert template="template"

                  parameter="HTML TopIndex" />

              <j2ee:insert template="template" parameter="HTML Body" />

         </body>

    </HTML >
