Hello everyone,
I have a new online business (www.OuterSports.com) retailing hiking, camping, and climbing equipment. Right now I am using a host (BizHosting.com) that allows users to create eCommerce sites using templates that are hard to customize. I am looking to do a new version of the site in Java (Servlets, JSP). I need access to a database (for obvious reasons), a shopping cart functionality, and other eCommerce features. I am on a very limited budget. Does anyone have experience with what free or cheap tools are available (databases, web servers, Gantt chart programs, secure servers,etc.) to develop a professional website that won't cost me more than the time I spend coding and integrating the system?
Thanks in advance for your help.

You could try MySQL for the database and Resin for the web-server, although you'd have to check their sites to make sure they're free for your purposes.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
