Using VS2012/MVC4:

I have an existing small asp.net web site (not a web app). The owner wants an estore, so I'm checking out nopcommerce. I have *very limited* experience with mvc.

I downloaded and installed nopcommerce 3.20 and looked around in the file structure. It contains two mvc apps, one of which calls the other.

I'm considering recreating the existing web site inside the nopcommerce framework as a new mvc app, and calling the nop.web app from that web site app.

Being completely new to MVC, how would I go about it? I couldn't find how nop.web is calling nop.admin. I'm not sure what to even look for.

I read on the Nop support site that the Nop.Admin library isn't executable directly. Calls appear to be made through the API. Another post (in the support forum) also stated that install the NOP Commerce as the primary web app, and then just edit the menus etc to include you own content/links etc.
Have you had a trawl through the NOP forums....
   
Nop.web has to be calling nop admin somehow. I just want to make my app the startup app and call nop.web from it via a menu item click (or something similar).

This was the page about the structure I read: http://www.nopcommerce.com/docs/71/source-code-organization-architecture-of-nopcommerce.aspx

I have no idea what WebAPI or ServiceStack is or why I should consider either. I'm REAL new to MVC.

Unfortunately I'm in the middle of the oggin at the moment, otherwise I would have downloaded the stuff and had a go myself....maybe have a go when I get home! If you are really new to MVC I really do recommend the pluralsight videos at http://www.asp.net/mvc they really helped me get my head round the basics, event to the extent of get a full blown MVC project for my degree done.
