JSP/Servlets vs. PHP for Ecommerce

Does anyone know of a good open source shopping cart system based on Java that is comparable to php-based Zen-Cart or Magento? I have been running a few stores on Zen-Cart, and I recently started playing with Magento. I know that there are lots of reasons for open source ecommerce applicatios being built with php rather than jsp/servlets (easier coding, better performance, etc.), but I'm wondering whether there is anything out there that is Java-based that competes with those kinds of php-based shopping cart systems.
