To better evaluate and anticipate those profound impacts of e-commerce, therefore, it is important to further refine our understanding of consumers’ e-shopping behavior.
E-commerce software developers are under pressure to develop applications at a record pace. (Aoyama 1998)The widespread lack of process discipline and procedural guidance available for such market driven environments highlights the need of a framework to support practitioners’ development efforts. We present a validated evolutionary software development (Anton and Carter 2003) process, the EPRAM (Evolutionary Prototyping with Risk Analysis and Mitigation) Model, for rapid development in e-commerce (electronic commerce) environments. The EPRAM Model explicitly addresses the challenges inherent in small-team rapid development projects requiring no more than 12 people. The model was intentionally designed to comply with the Level 2 KPAs (Key Process Areas) of the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model (CMM). it combines evolutionary prototyping with an aggressive risk mitigation strategy to ensure
that proposed requirements adhere to all established security and privacy policies. This process document details the model and includes a set of 12 document templates for practitioners to employ as needed in a rapid development effort. (Highsmith 1998)

Comparison of Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL DBMS
. IEEE Software, September/October
This article provides a comprehensive analysis and comparison of the e-commerce software available. It is especially helpful to illustrate the benefits and disadvantages of one model over the other. (Sims 2000) The authors compare the elementary eatures f the models. As well, they provide a general consideration, which assists in illustrating why the researcher chose MySQL over the Oracle model for the e-commerce venture. Also included in the comparison are elementary features, transactions, programming in DB, adminis and the portability and scalability are compared as well. Important aspects included in the comparison that illustrate why MYSQL was chosen over Oracle are the performance and VLDB, the application development and interfaces. Included were comparisons of the Important factors of reliability and commercial issues

Why PHP and MySQL
Software, 15(6), 56-65
This piece of literature provides an introduction to PHP, MySQL, and the interaction of the two. The article also addresses some of the most common questions about these tools, such as What are they and How do they compare to similar technologies It gives a detailed description of PHPs and what their function is and also provides information as to why they will be most relevant for this researcher’s project. PHP is the Web development language written by and for Web developers. (Rising and Janiff 2000) PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. The product was originally named Personal Home Page Tools. PHP is a
