I've been in software professionally since 2001, mostly in enterprise business apps. Lately, I've been involved in running several e-commerce sites:

I've had varying degrees of success. My e-commerce empire is a work in progress.

I also blog about my experience with Leangains.

comment How did Git and Mercurial develop so similarly at the same time?
Well that explains it. I did a quick check of the BitKeeper commands, and it does seem like both Git and Mercurial "borrow" terminology from there.

So this answers Chris Farmer's question (in the Q's comments) that real Java people don't necessarily create getters and setters for little internal classes. You are a "real" Java person, right?

comment Should I include HTML markup in my JSON response?
Great point about the reuse. Everyone seems to be voting for the Ajax request to only contain data, and no markup, for various reasons. But this one is a big one. Thanks.

comment Should I include HTML markup in my JSON response?
I like your idea of burning the JSON data into the page -- not here since I don't fetch the additional data until I know what item you're adding to your cart. Making a request for the page layout, then a second for the data seems to be common these days. Having the data in a JavaScript variable eliminates the need for the second HTTP request without having the have two different bits of rendering code (i.e, client and server).

comment Should I include HTML markup in my JSON response?
Thanks for the reply. That's actually what I meant in option 1. The lightbox as a container would be burned into the page but hidden. The JSON data from the Ajax request would be used to generate the content in the container. Some of that content would be marked up using HTML. How did you interpret option 1? Maybe that can be my third option.
