actually, I'm in the middle of planning to build small online shop. - where should I start? without EJB if possible and utilize JSP, transform output to XML and render it using XSLT. - what book/s (printed or online) that shows how to implement it or has online shop sample case?
This book has online shop sample but not sure if it's good in term of Design: "Java for the Web with Servlets, JSP, and EJB". What I don't like is, it doesn't utilize XML and XSLT for presentation layer and sounds out-dated (published 2002).
sorry if I posted in the wrong forum. couldn't find a forum that discuss this kind of questions.
I have heard many people say that the Sun Pet Store example is NOT a very well designed application, I myself have never looked at it in detail.
In your case though, you may want to follow the incremental development method. Choose a very small subset of functionality that forms the core of what you are trying to do, and as you implement that you will learn more about the technologies you are using, and the design decision you need to make.
