Giving Elastic Path the ultimate flexibility utilizing java ecommerce open source technology.
Ecommerce projects are easier when everyone understands exactly what's happening under the hood. That's why Elastic Path is built on a foundation of the industry's best open source ecommerce software. We also provide exceptional documentation and in-house support so you're always empowered to meet the most demanding business requirements. See below for how Elastic Path works with the Java ecommerce framework.
The Spring Framework is part of the Elastic Path Core Commerce Solutions architecture and utilizing Elastic Path opens up a world of possibilities. It is responsible for system-level services including object life cycle management, transactions, security, and job scheduling via the inclusion of several Spring modules.
This open source e-commerce technology uses dependency injection and inversion of control to allow non-invasive extension of our platform. This makes it possible to customize the implementation of classes without changing the code that invokes that class.
The loose coupling offered by Spring provides a tremendous level of flexibility and simplicity for developers customizing the Elastic Path Java eCommerce framework.
Working with Elastic Path also has the advantage of Spring Security, which provides comprehensive authentication and authorization capabilities. It is combined in a mature and stable package designed specifically for enterprise applications built on it.
Spring Security offers streamlined configuration and a modular architecture, with support for a wide range of standard authorization services.
Maven is an Apache open-source project for managing software build processes. Elastic Path combined with Maven is a powerful way to optimize the software build processes.
Maven encourages deployment consistency with a convention over configuration approach. This means that Commerce Engine developers are shielded from the complexities of the build process as much as possible, increasing efficiency and productivity.
Elastic Path uses the Open Services Gateway with the Java platform. The Open Services Gateway is a modular framework that adds a complete, dynamic component model to the Java platform. This provides robust application lifecycle management, and allows selected services in Cortex to be remotely installed, started, stopped, updated, or uninstalled without requiring a reboot.

OpenJPA is a top-level project at the Apache Software Foundation that Elastic Path also takes advantage of. It has a persistence layer that features lightweight and transparent persistence of Java entities and database independence.
OpenJPA combines the best features from a variety of competing persistence options, including ORM, ODB, EJB2, and JDO — and includes a rich set of options for performance tuning.
