The purpose of this thesis is comparison of different online shop implementations in PHP programming language. It will help developer, who lacks experiance in this area, to make a decision about the way of custom application development by taking customers’ requirements into account. We will be comparing implementations of online shop Prodaja sestavljenih računalnikov. For comparison, we chose three ways of implementation: with Zend Framework library, Drupal CMS and Magento Commerce ecommerce system. Zend Framework is an opensource PHP library for web applications development and has rich features set, by which it supports ordered project structure and faster development. Drupal is an opensource CMS for building websites and has rich core features set like creation of dynamic websites, user accounts support, blogging, comments and forums. Magento Commerce is an opensource ecommerce system, which supports flexibility, control over apperance, content and functionalities of online shop. For comparison, we chose 10 criteria: implementation time, learning curve, upgrades, flexibility, maintenance, online support, speed, optimization, bandwidth usage and commercial solutions. Implementations were rated from 1 to 5 points per criterion. During the comparison it became obvious that implementations differ. That’s why we used criteria rates according to customer requirements for recommending appropriate implementation. At the end we created a decision tree, which can help the potential developer with his decision for the way of implementation.
