I'm tasked with building a web application that includes (among other things) shopping cart functionality with all of the usual bells and whistles. It occurs to me that this is probably the most common application built by web application programmers and I was hoping to avoid building yet another one of my own.
I have found many non-commercial open source PHP and Perl shopping cart systems and I was hoping to find some open source implementations in Java. So far, I haven't had much luck.
I'd be interested to know if you've had a good experience with a quality open source shopping cart system written in Java, or if (as I suspect) everyone just rolls their own as needed.
Thanks, I had already seen the Fluffy Cat cart and I wasn't too impressed with it. It's advertised as "Unfinished" and I was hoping for something more sophisticated and in wider use. Please let me know if you know of any others!
Softslate Commerce is an excellent package with many good features built in. The software is free to download and use, but it has limitations on the number of products, and you don't get sourcecode. $500 gets you the sourcecode and removal of limitations.
If you're interested, more information about the SoftSlate Commerce Java shopping cart is available on its web site: http://www.softslate.com. The product limit for the free version is now 100 products.
