But Java isn't an interpreted language is it? What I mean by that is, isn't it a bit more powerful than a regular scripting language such as PHP or ASP? Can't it just sit around in the background and wait for something to happen? I don't really know anything about Java or JSP so those questions are asked in ignorance. > <example_code origin="another homebrewed shopping cart"> Don't dis the homebrew man! ;) I know that in my case (assuming I can actually finish the cart, which I think I can) it will make our behind-the-scenes web operation a lot easier and smoother. I've checked out packaged stores like osCommerce (among others) and they would not make things any easier than they already are. It's a disaster right now using the store we have now (an old version of StoreFront from LaGarde, blagh!). Chris.
