I'm planning to create an e-comm site as a personal project (not company related) and I've been searching around for a good J2EE book that covers e-comm with Java/J2EE specifically on the order fulfillment/processing subject. It's not that the subject is completely new to me, as a matter of fact, I've worked on e-comm systems in the past, but only from a content-management persepctive. If anyone knows of a good Java referecne that details order fufillment, payment processing, etc, please advise.
Thanks,
SAF

I am not aware of books discussing e-commerce apps in particular. However, I would suggest grabbing some of these books:
Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development
Professional Java Server Programming J2EE, 1.3 Edition
J2EE Developer's Handbook
Core J2EE Patterns (2nd edition)

Those are generalized design/architecture books, and I actually have the 2nd book you mentioned. I'm very familiar with J2EE technologies as I have been using them for over 5 years.
I found a few books on Amazon that cover E-Commerce, but I really don't know how "in-depth" they are on the topic. I guess the best way to find out if to visit the book store :-)
Thanks!

What do you think differentiates e-commerce applications from your average enterprise applications? I'd put my money on general architectural knowledge instead.
Going to the bookstore is a good idea. I've bought a couple of bad ones that seemed to strike a nerve based on the table of contents but proved to be outdated (referring to products no longer in the market, having no idea of the "latest" techie buzzwords, etc.) and quite superficial (using words like "MOM" instead of "JMS" and so on) when it came to technical stuff.
