The Walnut Creek, Calif., vendor announced the general availability of new products and services, including MarketSite Portal Solution 3.0, BuySite 6.0 e-procurement application, a new release of MarketSite Global Trading Portal, and a new XML transaction engine.

Aside from the company's XML offerings, the CommerceOne product moves don't represent much new, but signal the follow-through on plans announced last year, according to one analyst.

"[BuySite] basically globalizes the trading sites. This announcement is basically marketing. They're taking things from the past year, but most of it's not new. It's great that they're shipping it and it's available, but what's new and important is the XML tools," said Shawn Willett, an analyst with Current Analysis, a market research firm based in Sterling, VA.

Commerce One's newly released XML tools are delivered with the new MarketSite Portal Solution 3.0, an e-commerce portal including a suite of integrated trading services. The object-oriented, schema-based XML transaction engine enables the rapid development and deployment of XML-based portals, trading communities, applications, and documents.

With XML technology, trading partners can conduct transactions across dissimilar applications, systems, software, and documents, allowing heterogeneous systems to communicate and different portals to inter-operate and connect to the Commerce One Global Trading Web, one of the largest B2B trading communities.

Commerce One's MarketSite Global Trading Portal is a U.S. portal for exchanging goods and services among businesses worldwide. The new release of the Global Trading Portal includes features like hosted trading applications, auction services, Trade Zones for interaction with other e-marketplaces and advertising capabilities.

Extensity, a provider of Internet-based workforce optimization solutions, and Solix Internet, a provider of enterprise operations management solutions, also announced support of Commerce One's Marketsite Global Trading Portal Solution.

Commerce One's new products began shipping in December 1999 to enterprise customers, Internet market makers and partners, including BellSouth, Idaho Power Company, PeopleSoft, Pitney Bowes, SBC, Siemens, and UCLA.
