How to keep history of all purchases by loginid in online shopping website
Posted

Depends on what the business requirement is.

If you want to store the shopping data temporarily (i.e. for that session), then use an in memory store like a collection or dictionary etc.

If the user should see this shopping data next time he logs in, you will need to use a database to store this information.
Next time the same user logs in, display the old shopping list.

Have a table (or tables) in your DB which holds "historic" orders: when the user places the order you add the data to it, complete with a datestamp and references to products.

To be honest, you probably don't need to do this: you already have the order history in the shape of existing invoices - which most companies must keep for a certain number of years anyway so the tax authorities can examine them if they feel the need.
