Best Java based open source eCommerce Software

There are a number of open source java based ERP softwares. Listing few good ones here

The Open For Business (OFBiz) project is an open source enterprise automation software project licensed under the MIT Open Source License. By open source enterprise automation we mean: Open Source ERP, Open Source CRM, Open Source E-Business / E-Commerce, Open Source SCM, Open Source MRP, Open Source CMMS/EAM, and so on.
SourceTap's CRM application is a highly flexible Sales Force Automation (SFA) tool that meets both the needs of sales managers and the sales rep. SourceTap's CRM includes Sales Force Automation (SFA), marketing, campaign management, and customer service.
Compiere is a Open Source ERP software application with fully integrated CRM software solutions. Compiere is a fully integrated business solution for small-to-medium enterprises worldwide. Compiere is based on business process rather then departmental boundaries.
Centric CRM is an enterprise-class Open Source Customer Relationship Management web application that allows companies to better develop and maintain customers.

Openbravo is an open source ERP solution designed specifically for the SME (small to midsize firm). Developed in a web based environment, it includes many robust functionalities which are considered part of the extended ERP: procurement and warehouse management, project and service management, production management, and financial management. Additionally, this same application seemlessly integrates the rest of the areas, starting with a management scope directly helping clients with its CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and BI (Business Intelligence).

And there are more. A quick googling would produce more results.

KonaKart is an affordable java based shopping cart software solution for online retailers. Let KonaKart help increase your eCommerce sales.
In my views after a trial with konakart, I would rate it as the best eCommerce / Shopping cart software.


  1. xTuple should be included in your review of open source ERP solutions. It is a robust, scalable and fully supported solution.

    Also cross-platform, so a great way for the SME to avoid the microsoft tax and run their business on Apple Mac OS X.

  2. ERP or e-commerce?
    I have worked on commercial e-commerce solutions written using java, but i never found anything close to oscommerce like.

    OFBiz is now apache project, but in middle of flux.

  3. Alfresco? Not even in the race for the best in your list!
