ZusammenfassungBased on the specific characteristics of electronic commerce (E-Commerce) requirements for an adequate system support, this contribution gives an overview of the respective distributed systems technology which is (or will be shortly) available for open and heterogeneous electronic commerce ap-plications. Starting from basic communication mechanisms this includes (trans-actionally secure) remote procedure call and database access mechanisms, serv-ice trading and brokerage functions as well as security aspects including such as notary and non-repudiation functions. Further important elements of a system infrastructure for E-Commerce applications are: common middleware infra-structures, componentware techniques, distributed and mobile agent technolo-gies etc. Increasingly new and important topics in this area are currently: work-flow management support for compound and distributed E-Commerce services as well as negotiation protocols to support both the settlement and the fulfill-ment of electronic contracts in E-Commerce applications. In addition to an overview of the state of the art of the respective technology, the paper also pres-ents briefly some aspects of related projects conducted by the authors jointly with international partners (sponsored by EU/ACTS, EU/ESPRIT, DFG) in or-der to realize some of the important new functions of a systems infrastructure for open distributed E-Commerce applications.
