A diagram showing various scenarios including the service calls, optional commands, controller commands and views.

Overall shopping flow diagram

1. OrderItemDisplay (Optional) is redirected.

2. OrderCalculate can be called by OrderItemAdd or OrderItemUpdate internally by specifying a parameter "calculateOrder=1", and it can also be redirected after OrderItemAdd or OrderItemUpdate through a URL parameter.

3. OrderPrepare is automatically called by OrderDisplay and may also be directly called by store.

4. The storefront invokes OrderFacadeClient.prepareOrder and OrderFacadeClient.addPaymentInstruction from the order billing and the shipping pages.

For the optional commands and services:
  • Unlike web 1.0 storefront pages, the Aurora starter store does not use OrderItemDisplay or OrderDisplay. Instead, the storefront has its own ways to display the shopping cart.
  • If a shopper updates quantity or deletes an item from the shopping cart OrderFacadeClient.updateOrderItem or OrderFacadeClient.deleteOrderItem is invoked. OrderFacadeClient.updatePaymentInstruction and OrderFacadeClient.removePaymentInstruction behave in the same way.

Typical parameters

Typically storefront passes name-value pairs (with values being String[]) to the services for each user action:

For ".", "***", and so on, refer to Order abbreviations for explanations.
