Commerce Server 2007 code name "Mojave" October 2008 Community Technology Preview (CTP) is available for Download from the Microsoft Connect Site.

The Commerce Server team is pleased to announce the availability of the Microsoft Commerce Server 2007 code name "Mojave" October CTP. This is the first public release of our next Commerce Server offering.

This CTP includes the first of two key additions to Commerce Server: the new multi-channel commerce foundation. This new run-time API adds new out-of-box functionality, adds pervasive multi-channel awareness, and unifies the run-time calling model across all subsystems.

The next CTP will provide the second key addition: a contemporary, default production-ready out-of-the-box site using Web Parts running in SharePoint, and other SharePoint commerce services.

The October CTP currently includes the web parts only as SharePoint Solution Services files (.WSP), requiring site assembly.

To receive the October CTP, click this link, to review and accept the EULA. You will receive an email with the link to the download package. Note that this CTP is a pre-beta release that is not feature complete and requires some manual setup. This CTP currently includes the API and Web Parts for review and assembly of sites. It is strongly recommended that you consult the readme file associated with the download for information about installing and setting up the October CTP.

Please use the Connect feedback system to provide feedback about the October CTP. Thank you.

The final Commerce Server 2007 code name “Mojave” Community Technology Preview (CTP) will be available in the November 2008 time frame. It will be feature complete, and will have the full multi-channel commerce foundation in it, as well as the default out-of-the-box site using the ASP.NET web parts in SharePoint, along with other SharePoint commerce services.
