    Java based ecommerce engine / shopping cart

    I am looking for a java based ecommerce engine to replace my existing Miva store. I have been looking at ElasticPath and also stumbled across Simplemerce Anyone have any experience with these packages? Are there any suggestions ? Both packages hover round 15,000 rage. Any other places I should be looking for advice. I have a background in Java development, hence the 2 choices but I don't have a lot of experience with ecommerce software.

    I'm sorry, what is the reason of switching Java based shopping cart?

    There are a number of reasons, I have a Java development background. Our non store sites will be moving to Java and I am interested in keeping the technology stack consistent across all aspects of our web presence.

    If you're still looking you might want to try KonaKart. It's free and easily extendable if you know java.

    ElasticPath is not worth the money. I can't express how bad 2 of the sales people there (I think one of them was the sales manager/VP or something) talked down to me. They implied I was not worthy enough to even discuss their code with them, so I played there game and had to convince them I was worthy just so I could look at a demo. Stay away from them like the plague.

    You can get just as good a code here for $500:

    I run it on shared hosting with 160MB JVM and it works great and is fast. The demo on their website pulls images from another site, so that slows it down a bit.

    Also, don't waste your time with Avetti either, they have like a 16 page chapter on how to add a product... it is ridiculous, I could never figure it out. But you can see a demo for yourself.

    Oh crap I just noticed this thread is like 4 months old! LOL
