e-commerce Shopping Cart implemetation using java servlets

Platform:
WinNT and Sun Solaris.
Both using Apache 1.3.12 and JServ 1.1(servlet engine).
Oracle8i.

I am trying to build a very simple site for selling reports.  Reports can either be purchased individually or via a monthly subscription.  In both cases, the user needs to log in when he's ready to checkout.

I'm looking for both:
1) Is there a off-the-shelf shopping cart easily integrated into Apache and JServ and Oracle8i?
2) Is there a freely available shopping cart on the above platform (not using ASP) that I can examine and learn from.

-----  A little background about the task  ------



The user would navigate thru the site, selecting whichever reports she/he wishes.  When the user is ready to checkout, she would click on the checkout link.  At this point, the server determines whether the user is already logged in.  If not, the server offers the user two options:
1. Purchase the reports individually (one time process).  
2. Register for a monthly subscription. If the user already has a subscription, she would then be able to enter her userid and password.
In both scenarios, the server must remember the user's report selection(s).
Also, in both cases, the user must fill out (or already have) a profile.

Thank you

You're asking a lot of a "freely available" shopping cart program.

Check out Mals e-commerce. Its free and you can do some customizing. You might be able to do some programming in front of it and have Mals e-commerce do the shopping cart part. Its at http://www.aitsafe.com/

I'm not familiar with Apache, Jserv, or Oracle 8i, but this may be worth a look.

Hi READER,

AITSAFE.COM is completely empty!!!!!!!

It doesn't have to be free.  The free version I was asking for was for edification purposes as well as maybe using it inhouse.

Macromedia Drumbeat has a JSP version that would work perfectly as long as your database is an ODBC compliant data source.  They have a trial version you can try for 30 days, and if they no longer offer the free trial, i have a copy of the evaluation i can send you. Theres NO ASP involved.

HateMachine,

Is the source code available?  I'm trying to learn doing it more than implementing it.  Eventually, I might use an off the shelf shopping cart if I think it's better than anything I can implement and support.

he program works in a "Project" type method, it produces the source code after the whole project is finished.  If you have to support it i would recomend going with an off-the-shelf solution, simply because it takes a while to get used to all the quarks Drumbeat 2000 has.

Try to use ColdFusion. ColdFusion support Oracle as well. If you use ColdFusion you can save development time. And ColdFusion is among the major e-commerce site.

With using "Jrun" you can integrate ColdFusion, Oracle and Java servlet.
