There are four major parts to this system.
1. product inventory and descriptions - kept in Interbase, images in Zope
2. Shopping cart - track qty of each item put in basket, this is just a
dict stored in an SQLSession object
3. The checkout sequence - Interbase tables with Python code to
populate them as each checkout step is completed
4. Charging the card - Wampum generator calling Cybercash.
Item 1 is very specific to this site, so there's nothing really worth sharing
Item 2 is trivial easy
Item 3 A lot of this is from my "toolbox" built on SQLDict. I'm hoping
someday I can give it away, but my current customers have paid for it
and aren't willing to give it up. Maybe next quarter when the current
contracts are complete.
Item 4 Not mine, but I have some fixes to give back when I get my brain
working again to do a decent job.
