Co-founder to build a better than jbilling product (distributed team)

Hello,
Do you think as i do that http://jbilling.com is too much complex software? that its enterprise version license is very expensive? and that most importantly a java billing solution could be done in a much simpler , user friendly and efficient way?

if you are experienced in jbilling or other billing platforms and want to partner with me to build our own competitive java based billing system ; them you are welcome.

I beleive we could remove most of unnecessary complicated features of this product. we can build it with a better tool like playframework or grails entirely. and much important we can build it as SAAS (sofware as a service) so that the tedious repetitive tasks of installing and configuring this complex system in customers env is shielded away . we could also be very Demanding and build the ultimate Cloud based java billing system!

If you feel interested by this project please leave your contact. we can than make up a distributed team to work on this project and bring it to life.

I feel it is important b/c currently jbilling is the only java based billing system and it is monopolizing all the market . plus its complexity requires companies to hire experts to do difficult work for installation ,configuration and customization. I beleive we can offer a better and easy solution with minimum investment by companies . probably the Cloud JBilling system i mentioned above.

thanks

Hi Yahya, I have been a fan of Jbilling software since my days college days for learning and i kept following its architecture and technologies. Now when i have spent some time in job, i am more experienced around java/j2ee, e-commerce, solr(search engine), data mining, no-sql(cassandra). I love to code, look into scalability and architecture part. I think building such a product will give me a lot of satisfaction. I would love to join team of talented people, having said that, this requires time. How are you planning to take it further?? Please contact me on my email address harshtheone000@gmail.com.

Hello all,
i didn't knew jbilling was aquired by AppDirect company on 16th october : http://info.appdirect.com/about/press/releases/appdirect-acquires-jbilling-worlds-leading-open-source-billing-solution

they now start delivering a cloud based solution of jbilling : Telco Hosted at http://jbilling.com/get-jbilling

So AppDirect has already done what i was hoping to do ;) . will be difficult to compete with AppDirect jbilling now ;)

How about making a simple to use and robust product which don't require much training?
I believe, it is easier to make a product than maintaining. So can't we think to offer these services on web as well as mobile platform?

yes that's what i'm looking to. but people have discouraged me by saying that billing systems are complex by nature.
I'm willing to receive your ideas on how to make jbilling simpler. you can PM me and we can discuss more if you have some ideas to propose.
