If you are building an online store or just need a place to record your inventory, then chances are you will need a Product Catalog. Now you could go out and buy any old cookie cutter Catalog tool on the market. However, before you do, you better make sure you understand what your Catalog requires. Otherwise, you may spend a lot of time and money on a tool that will not fit the bill. So, today we will focus on how to convert our web application into a WordPress plugin.

Building a WordPress Plugin for our Product Catalog

Today’s lesson is going to pick up where we left off with our Spring MVC web application. In this lesson, we are going to build a WordPress plugin that will emulate our MVC model. We will start with a complete step by step walkthrough on building a WordPress plugin. Then, we will walk through how to build our MVC Product Catalog in PHP and HTML inside our new plugin. Once, we are done you will have a fully functional Product Catalog WordPress plugin.
