E-business software maker BroadVision next week is expected to launch the latest version of its business-to-business applications Business Commerce 6.0 and MarketMaker 6.0, in its first major software launch since the Redwood City, Calif., company cut its work force in April.
The latest versions of BroadVision's e-commerce software mark the first time that the product line is completely Java-enabled, because they run on and take advantage of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) features in the company's One-to-One Enterprise 6.0 server, released in March. J2EE is a Java standard for developing business applications. The Business Commerce and MarketMaker applications are designed to help companies create customized business-to-business commerce portals, as well as build private or public online marketplaces. Company executives said the average selling price for the complete e-commerce product is about $500,000.
