Running the Duke’s Forest Application

Running the Duke’s Forest application involves several tasks, among them the following:

  • Registering as a customer of Duke’s Store

  • As a customer, purchasing products

  • As an administrator, approving shipment of a product

  2. Click Products in the left sidebar.
  3. On the page that appears, click one of the categories (Plants, Food, Services, or Tools).
  4. Choose a product and click Add to Cart.

    You can order only one of any one product, but you can order multiple different products in multiple categories. The products and a running total appear in the Shopping Cart in the left sidebar.

    A message appears, reporting that your order is being processed.

  6. Click Orders in the left sidebar to verify your order.
