Extra Credit Opportunities
For 5 points extra credit you can elect to handle not in stock items using some sort of consistent methodology. This method should be clear to the end users even if it only a warning e.g. "Some of your items are currently out of stock, we will make every effort to obtain them and ship them immediately, if we are unable to provide them, you will not be charged" or some such. The amount of extra credit received is a function of your overall cleverness.
For 5 points extra credit you may elect to modify your site to be a little more "e-commerce" like. In most sites you are not forced to login until checkout. In other words you can add items to your cart, etc using a temporary ID. When you check out the temporary ID is replaced in all tables with the "real" one. This is a toughie but will make your site act much more like Amazon or other shopping sites.
This lab is worth 20 points and due on December 6th. When you have completed the lab, send an email to Chris Allen indicating you are done and providing the external URL to your pages.
