WebSphere Commerce Server for Linux:

Please join us on August 21, at the IBM Linux Center of Competence
for a presentation by Lori Sackowitz and John Wenzel on using
WebSphere Commerce Studio (WCS) under Linux to integrate critical
business processes essential to generating profit from retail
business-to-consumer and business-to-business operations.

WCS is an open standards-based (J2EE, XML, UDDI, SOAP and WSDL)
soup-to-nuts solution used to streamline your Web storefront and
plug into back-end ERP systems. It includes an IDE and a
comprehensive suite of tools for creating everything from images to
Java applications to access control systems. Developers can use
IBM VisualAge for Java, Enterprise Edition as a test environment for
their applications without having to upload to a WCS server.
WebSphere is a scalable platform, that can be used with commodity
hardware all the way up through to mainframe Linux systems. This will
be a technical presentation.

WebSphere on Tux:

  • Websphere evaluation download center
  • Tutorial: Deploying a J2EE application to WebSphere
