Using 4.50 version
I would like to find the proper way for nopcommerce interaction with my aspx.NET application
To get the idea - there is a list of software products that we want to sell (downloadable) and there are some actions that we need to accomplish after user is registered (only once) and before he downloaded the bought software (once per each software product):
A/ create user in our system, inform user about it (e-mail is ID and password should be the same)
B/ register user in product N dedicated workspace (there are several steps to be done - define what working space user can access, create a sample project for him etc)
For the moment there is an aspx.NET application which handles all this with SQL Server Database behind (we also use SQL Server database when user works in these software products)
1/ For each software product I need to define a kind of application specific settings which will be used when doing B/ - where it is appropriate to store this information in nopcommerce and how make it available for reading and using?
2/ How do I reuse my code of aspx.net application? Direct calls to dll methods?
3/ Probably I should establish direct connection to my Database - how can I do it using nop commerce 4.50? This question was already asked many years ago - see
https://www.nopcommerce.com/en/boards/topic/33377/nopcommerce-connect-two-databases but since then everything has changed - so what is a new way to establish another database connection and use it when needed?
