Hi,

I'm looking for some good reading on how to build a java ecommerce.

Also, would that be recommendable anyway? Does anyone do that these days? Or should I just use an appropriate tool for that?

What about Apache OfBiz? Is that supported these days? I just visited their site and there is a lot of broken links.

E-commerce is a broad field; what exactly would be involved - a web shop with payment processing?

Yes, a web shop capable of separating products into categories, payment processing, the shopping cart..something similar to amazon I guess, but surely not as big as amazon.

I'd start by searching for "java shopping cart" - there are lots of them out there, some open source, some proprietary.

Thank you. I'll do it. Also, have you ever heard about the Apache OfBiz project? I read somewhere its description and it sounds exactly as what I need. However, I visited the web site and it contains lots of broken links. Maybe it has been discontinued or something?

I haven't heard of Apache OFBiz before, but when I look at the website: http://ofbiz.apache.org/ it doesn't seem to be broken to me. The New Features page seems to indicate that people are working on it (latest change of that page 5 April 2010), it doesn't look like an abandoned project.
