Tomaž Zorc (2009) Analysis and application of technologies for implementation of webstores. EngD thesis.
In this thesis I present a process of creation of an online shop. The requests of a known customer were to create an online shop (for household appliances) that would enable an administration of the database of articles, review and acceptance of orders as well as review and ordering of articles. That was upgraded with a possibility of monitoring the number of visits, an individual visitor (through IP number) and article. That could be used as basis for the creation of a system which would by virtue of the numbers of visits reduce the article's price. The creation of the online shop was performed using processes of the development of information system with RUP methodologies. At the capturing of the requests we arrived to the following requests: the lease of an internet space where the internet site would host and offer possibilities of creating email addresses with its domain, the creation of an online shop, from the choice of the programming language to the database, and the creation of the manual for use. Cost-effectiveness, quick responsiveness of the help desk and quick responsiveness of the server were the reasons for which we decided to host the online shop on the server which is physically located in the United States of America (Arizona). The only weakness of such hosting is that the expenses of a lease of the server cannot simply be shown as the expenses of the undertaking. The creation of the internet site was performed in four phases: collection and analysis of the requests, creation of a database, creation of a code and testing of the online shop. Collection and analysis were done in cooperation with the management of the shop and with the system administrator. The online shop should enable the ordering of articles, informing of the person placing the order of the order, monitoring the number of visits, visitors and a certain article as well as processing all the data by the employee. Creation of a database took a lot of time. On account of a request for a possible future extension of a database we have organized articles by inheritance. Every group of articles has its specific features as well as the features that are common to all the articles (e.g. IDarticle, title, colour, warranty, price…). We have normalized all data structures up to the third normal form. In doing that we avoided the up-to-date anomalies.
