osCommerce ASP.NET version

Hey guys!

 

This is just one idea that crossed my mind. Ever since i have been using osCommerce, i am literally just free of any hastle to do any complex tasks involved in creating an online e-commerce solution. I had an idea just a few days back to develop the oscommerce variant in ASP.NET 3.5. I just want to know your opinion, whether its a great idea or its just ethically wrong. I believe that we can really spread oscommerce to all fronts.... :rolleyes: . Please advise

 

REGARDS

Why would you need it in .NET or asp? Windows has now made the windows server more compatible with PHP (pretty much had to do so) and soon, you will not have to worry about any issues between cross compatibility or connections to the MS SQL DB either (more transparent connection rules).

 

Here is an article about this:

This may be a dumb question- but I've always used oscommerce for all my stores and recently realized the "big boys" use asp.net. Why is that? Is it so page extensions are .html or for cross compatibility? I need to fix a website of mine in osc and thinking of converting to .net. (side note I have a mac so i'd need mono or purchase a PC) Anythoughts or advice?

.Net is not free. One generally has to pay for a shop to be built in asp. Php is free. If you have a shop you pay for and something goes wrong, you contact Microsoft and say fix it. If you have a free shop and something goes wrong, you are told to fix it.

The "big boys" are willing to spend a lot of money to be able to toss support issues over the wall to Microsoft. Some are MS shops where .Net is mandatory, and freeware like PHP is forbidden (for usually bogus reasons) and there is an in-house shrine to Bill Gates, but that's a whole 'nuther fight.

 

osCommerce rewritten in ASP.Net wouldn't really be osC, would it? I'm not sure of the legalities involved in converting the PHP code to ASP.Net (rewriting from scratch, given the algorithms, I think is OK). Anyway, what do you think you would you accomplish by doing this? Someone still has to debug and support the code. Just because it's in a different language (ASP.Net) doesn't automatically make it superior to the original (PHP). Valid reasons might be that it will have to integrate with a large existing ASP.Net system, and that the support staff is experienced in ASP.Net and not PHP.
