This project aims to investigate on the development of data driven web site to cope with the constant need to update infonnation in e-commerce. The static web sites can no longer cope with the demand for fast changing infonnation. Online catalogue was chosen to demonstrate the advantages of data driven approach over the static approach. The main objective of this study is to study and identify different technology and tools in data driven web site development, and to choose the appropriate combination of these technologies and tools to design and develop a prototype system. This prototype system is a dynamic online catalogue site which generate web pages based on the request of the users. Requests are handled by accessing a Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). The architecture of the website is based on the three-tier architecture. The methodology used in developing this project is the Five Phase Process. The result of this study is the production and implementation of the prototype in a standalone server. It consists of the catalogue content manager module and the catalogue presentation module. The catalogue content manager module is developed to provide the authorized personnel of a company to maintain the information in the website through a password protected section. The catalogue presentation module is developed to function as the interface for web users or online shoppers to browse products infonnation. A shopping cart is included in this module for online shoppers to add items that they desire to order, print an order fonn, and complete the transaction offline through fax. Finally, this project demonstrated the advantages of data driven web sites over the static web sites in displaying real time infonnation dynamically and at the same time pennitted the company to gain control over the content management of their web sites via simple web interface using web browser.
