Im not sure if this is the right forum to post this question. Im building my first shopping cart web application using struts for a client. It would include a sign on screen which would allow new users to include their info and I would also have to include a means to include new products and update products info such as item price. My question is how many hours should this take for a mid level developer or a senior developer? I need to present the client with the number of hours this project will take and I dont want to quote him too high or too low. One more question what do you feel would be fair to ask for such a project? The client is a small business.
Thank you all for your time

Ron Tapia and I, implemented a shopping cart in Struts (including credit card support, connecting to a clearing house), and it took us 1 day.
This included database tables, entity beans, test cases, JSPs, Struts and integration testing.
But, we were working with Struts day in and day out for quite a while.
