The Commerce Server team is pleased to announce the availability of the Microsoft Commerce Server 2009 - December 2008 CTP, the feature complete pre-release of the next version of Commerce Server. (These CTP’s were formerly known as Commerce Server 2007 code name “Mojave”.)
Commerce Server 2009 delivers the ability to increase your business reach by making it possible to sell via multiple channels using an out-of-the-box shopping site, SharePoint Commerce Services, and the Multi-Channel Commerce Foundation. The new out-of-the-box shopping site leverages SharePoint Commerce Services, which provides a gallery of ASP.NET 3.5 Web Parts, a comprehensive e-commerce shopping feature-set, and technology integration between Commerce Server and SharePoint technologies. The Multi-Channel Commerce Foundation provides a new unified, extensible run-time programming model for Commerce Server, including new run-time e-commerce capabilities.
We invite you to install this pre-release version of Commerce Server 2009 into a non-production environment, preferably on a clean machine, to learn more about the Multi-Channel Commerce Foundation and SharePoint Commerce Services. This release is for evaluation purposes only and is not intended to be used in a production environment.
