RSDi.Com Announces Open Source Code for E-Commerce

RSDi.com, a new silicon valley startup, has launched the Internet’s first Open Source E-Commerce project. The first product, the Online E-Commerce Server utilizes Sun Microsystems’ (java.sun.com) Java and Jini for a full out of the box E-Commerce solution. The product includes integration with Cybercash and PaymentNet for credit card processing, shopping carts, rewards programs, coupons, online auctions, automatic XML catalog publishing, business to business XML transactions, a GUI Java applet for building stores and auctions over the Internet, and runs on the Java Servlet, WebLogic, NetDynamics 5, and Netscape Application Server platforms. The success of projects like Linux and Apache have shown open source code software developed over the Internet is highly successful. RSDi.com is applying the same principles and methods to the ever-booming E-Commerce industry. Most E-Commerce software is extremely proprietary and expensive giving RSDi’s software a unique position in the Internet commerce marketplace. RSDi.com sells full technical support and consulting for the Online E-Commerce Server www.rsdi.com
