360Store Applications for Point-of-Sale and Back Office

The 360Store application suite now supports the open source database,
MySQL. This gives retailers the ability to leverage existing technology
and lower costs.

Solutions from the retail software vendor 360Commerce are based on the
Java[TM] 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE[TM]). These solutions give
a competitive advantage to retailers by enabling them to capture and
leverage operational intelligence in real time.

360Store is a Java[TM] technology-based application suite. It includes
360Store Point-of-Sale and 360Store Back Office. Both products are
written in the Java programming language. They are designed to run on
multiple hardware platforms, Java technology-enabled OS and Java[TM]
DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) API-compliant relational databases.

"360Commerce's flexible Java architecture and applications give
retailers the ability to leverage technology they already own, choose
from a wide range of platforms and databases, and quickly customize the
applications to meet their unique business needs," said Steve Gannon,
director of product development for 360Commerce. "Combine this with
MySQL's ability to provide retailers with a widely-used and
cost-effective database solution, and we have an offering that allows
retailers to lower their total cost of ownership on a new store system
and rapidly see ROI."

MySQL is a cost-effective option known for its performance, reliability
and ease of deployment. Its architecture is easy to customize. MySQL is
available on more than twenty different platforms, including major Linux
distributions, UNIX[R] systems and Windows.
