"Arsdigita, a producer of web site content management and e-commerce applications, is scheduled to announce today that the 4.0 version of its software is available as open source code."

"The move is an unusual one for a private Java company. There are dozens of Java open source projects under way, but few, if any, for-profit companies have launched free e-commerce application suites."

"ArsDigita has already acquired a series of high-profile customers, including ecotourism Web site Away.com, Boston public radio station WGBH and The World Bank Group, said David Menninger, senior vice president of marketing at ArsDigita."

"The company is seeking to add to the momentum already behind its ArsDigita Community System (ACS) through the open source code move. "The objective is to become a worldwide standard," Menninger said."
