Hello everyone, I have a new online business (http://scribbidyscrubs.com) retailing discount nursing scrubs and discount medical uniforms. Right now I am using a host that allows users to create eCommerce sites using templates that are hard to customize. I am looking to do a new version of the site in Java (Servlets, JSP). I need access to a database, a shopping cart functionality, and other eCommerce features. I am on a very limited budget.
Does anyone have experience with what free or cheap tools are available (databases, web servers, Gantt chart programs, secure servers,etc.) to develop a professional website that won't cost me more than the time I spend coding and integrating the system?
