SharePoint: Displaying Data

by Mike Poole | August 2008 | .NET Microsoft

Once we have the data view firmly embedded in our page, it is a breeze to change the way the data looks and operates. In this article by Mike Poole, we will learn to apply nice formatting to data that is displayed on our page. We will learn to do this by making use of Cascading Style Sheets. We will also learn how to format our data automatically, depending on the data values (a technique known as conditional formatting). Then we will learn to filter and sort our data, use formulae to perform calculations, and how to split our data up into multiple pages.

Shipping, Taxes, and Processing Orders with WordPress 2.9 eCommerce

by Brian Bondari | March 2010 | e-Commerce Open Source WordPress

In this article by Brian Bondari, author of WordPress 2.9 E-Commerce, we will discuss the elements that concern us during and after a customer goes through the checkout process. These essential elements include tax configuration, shipping settings, and e-mail issues. We will also walk through a complete transaction from customer and store-owner perspectives, testing all variables. Effectively, what we want to ensure is that the entire checkout process works smoothly for all involved. We want to ensure that any applicable taxes and shipping charges are calculated correctly, and that both the customer and store owner receive accurate notifications about any orders. Be sure to test these processes thoroughly—the last thing you want to do is hurt your business by keeping customers uninformed or by under or overcharging for taxes and shipping. This article covers:

 

  • Locations and tax setup
  • Shipping Options and Calculators
  • Processing a test order
  • E-mails sent to you and the customer
  • Sales log

Short and Long-Running Processes in SOA-part1

by Michael Havey | May 2009 | Java Oracle

In this 2-part article series by Michael Havey, we have classified processes by duration, dividing them into three categories: short-running, mid-running, and long-running. Long-running processes need state, so we have examined three data models to keep process state: those used in BEA Weblogic Integration and Oracle's BPEL Process Manager, and our own custom model, which borrows ideas from these two. We then discuss how to build a long-running process out of several short-running processes (implemented in TIBCO's BusinessWorks) tied together with state in our custom data model. We then conclude by showing how short-running BPEL processes can be compiled for faster execution in the next part.
