I would like to build an ecommerce site, was just wondering if there are any websites that will cover the fundamentals of ecommerce (that you would recommend)

Also interested in anyones ecommerce experiences, products and services you have used, etc... Only caveat is that it has to be java powered... I have my own server but if there is a product out there that includes hosting as well i am ok with that...

Thanks in advance

E-Commerce is a broad area - what, exactly, should this package do? For example, searching for "java shopping cart" will find lots of ready-to-use packages. In the open source arena, Apache's OfBiz covers a lot of ground.

Apart from that, you'll need to investigate payment solutions; search for "payment processor (or processing)".

I am so bad with this. If I want to host it myself I need a shopping cart, a payment gateway and a ssl certificate. Is that basicsally it? I am looking for a good online article from a programmers perspective but I am not sure what to look for. I appologize for being vague.

You'll also need a Java hosting provider where you can set up your own domain, so that people can go to "https://www.christophers-online-market.com/" instead of something like "https://christopher-whu.some-big-isp.com/". You can get SSL certificates through Verisign or Thawte. The ServletsFaq lists some Java hosting providers.
