Trust me people, I have no idea about what the proper forum to post in

I know there's something call 'magento' out there or whatever protect me from 'reinventing the wheel'.

The thing is I want to use this circumstance to challenge myself to create my-own shopping website by Java technology.


Please suggest me the suitable framework and even good books or resources to start reading on before I'm eligible to do all the things.


Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Magento is indeed a e-commerce suite but it's written in PHP, not Java!!

If java based, the only one that I know of is KonaKart. Another from googling is Apache OFBiz which looks promising from its description able to support/do ERP,CRM,POS,MRP,SCM etc (any app you can think of)

For concepts you may want to check the book "Professional Java E-Commerce" here if you are using Java
