Painting hardwood door

I have to decorate a new external hardwood door black. I do not know at this stage whether the new frame will be softwood or hardwood. What would be the the way forward for prepping, priming, u/coat and finish and what paint would you recommend. The client has indicated that he wants a gloss finish. Thankfully the door is facing East so hopefully will not be taking taking the worst of the weather. Have not done an external door/frame for many years hence my question for help. Many Thanks
