Now I am going to give a brief overview of above three e-commerce platforms rather than complete pros and cons. I am comparing with the different operating systems like below:




As we all know how the features and other options with IOS, WINDOWS- LUMIA, and ANDRIOD. When comparing to the above three, we are getting good features and flexibilities with less cost for android.


Hybris suite itself providing inbuilt functionalities some of them are as follows:

ANT: Which is used for building application.

TOMCAT: Which is a default application server.

SOLR: Search server/engine

HSQL: Default database.

There are different Hybris suite are available here I am taking Hybris commerce suite. It got acquired by SAP in the year 2013. It is an enterprise-level e-commerce software suite that offers functionality for Business to the customer (B2C) and Business to Business (B2B) store. Some of the core concepts are as below:

Some of the core concepts are as below:

Extensions: Which adds new features and personalize our browsing experience. We have a predefined extension as well as custom extensions. Custom extensions are those which we will define as per our requirement.

Recipe: Recipe helps the process of automating the things. Which adds extensions for the corresponding recipe for which we have selected.

Follow the step by step procedure to setup hybris by using a recipe.

Step 1:

We need to extract the file into our corresponding folder.

Once the file extraction is done, different folders along with hybris folder will be as follows.

Step 2:

Go to your path installer>install  -r b2c_acc_plus and click on enter.


There will be different types of recipes available for us which are as follows.

Here "b2c_acc_plus" is the name of the recipe I have selected.

Based on the selected recipe corresponding extensions will be automatically built once the recipe set up is done. At this step, hybris folder will contain only bin folder.

At this step, hybris folder will contain only bin folder

After some time we will get the Build successfully message.

Once build is successful we will get the following folders in hybris additional to the existing bin folder.

Step 3:

Now go to your path->hybris->bin. Here we will able to see the list of extensions along with platform folder.

Step 4:

Go to your path hybris->bin->platform>setantenv.bat and enter.

Here we will get the ant version.

Step 5:

Now go to your path hybris->bin->platform>ant clean all and enter.

After some time we will get the Build successfully message.

Step 6:

Go to your path hybris->bin->platform>hybrisserver.bat and enter.

Here we are going to start the hybris server. After some time we will get the server start message.

Thus we started the hybris server successfully.

Step 7:

Now go to https://localhost:9001.We will get the Hybris Administration Console (HAC).

We will initialize the server here and after some time we will get the finished message.

Step 8:

Go to Hybris Administration Console (HAC), path platform->extension. Here we will select whatever the extension we need from the search button.

Step 9:

To stop the server use CTRL+C command and enter. After some time we will get the message as Y or N, here we need to give Y to stop the server.


For every login, we didn't need to perform all the above steps. We just need to go to your path->hybris->bin->platform>Hybrisserver.bat

Hybris is not only related to commerce its other products are as follows:

  • Billing

  • Marketing

  • Sales and service ...

Few points we need to know while doing the hybris project are:

  • As it is a B2B / B2C project         and

  • Which suite we are using.
