Default Currently best technologies for "online shop".

First of all - my first post so welcome everybody!

Now to the matter at hand.
I would like to get a bit more into Java programming. So far I licked a few technologies and made some not very complicated programmes. I want to create something more useful and concrete.
I would like to make myself a little online shop - with a cart and all the usual things.
Now I need a little help. I don't know what Java technologies are best suited for this task. If you could point me in right direction I would be really grateful.
Thank you all in advance.

PS. I really hope this is a right place to post this.

well, this is a tricky one - there are several professional standard frameworks in java that you could use. The choice will be down to specific requirements, experience, IDE and just general preference.

Spring offers a very popular framework which is pretty comprehensive (and just my personal preference ;) so you could look at their "petclinic" example for getting started:

Spring also has a product called Spring Roo, which brings Rapid Application Development to the party and give you increased initial productivity pretty quickly (although, if you are new to Spring, I would recommend you spending time understanding what is going on behind the scenes and how all the parts of the application are being wired together)

Other than that, check out Struts, Vaadin, GAE, Play

Have a look at my blog:
Or even my Android Apps (website):
I agree. Here's the link:
