VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 30, 2005 -- Elastic Path Software, the pioneer of flexible, developer friendly, Java ecommerce software architecture for building sophisticated and evolving online stores, announced today that it has become a JBoss Certified Solution Partner. Customers aiming to reduce their Total Cost of Ownership and deploy ecommerce software on proven and professionally supported open source technology, now have a solid option.

Elastic Path has long been deployable on more platforms than any other enterprise ecommerce software vendor, a testament to its Flexibility First approach to software architecture. Certification with JBoss, the market leading J2EE application server vendor, formalizes a longstanding relationship.

"Our customers have been deploying our ecommerce server containing core JBoss technologies for a number of years," noted Harry Chemko, CEO of Elastic Path Software, "and we have furthered our commitment to open source and minimizing the cost of ecommerce infrastructures by becoming a JBoss Certified Solution Partner."

Tom Cooper, vice president of worldwide channels, JBoss, Inc., explains, "Elastic Path has leveraged open source JBoss Enterprise Middleware System technologies such as JBoss Application Server, Hibernate, JBoss Cache and Apache Tomcat to reduce the cost and complexity of their ecommerce platform. They are a pioneer in using open source components for enterprise ecommerce and JBoss is pleased to have an integral role in the success of Elastic Path customers."

Elastic Path supports proprietary applications such as Oracle AS, IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and numerous others, but was the first commercial Java ecommerce software deployable on JBoss AS. In fact, the first Elastic Path deployment on JBoss AS was done for JBoss's own ecommerce store.
