Electronic Commerce is a rapidly growing area that is gaining more and more importance not only in the interrelation of businesses (business-to-business Electronic Commerce) but also in the everyday consumption of individuals performed via the Internet (business-to-customer Electronic Commerce). Since Electronic Commerce is a very interdisciplinary area, it has a lot of impacts to various communities. The goal of this paper is to identify and to summarize the impact of Electronic Commerce from a database transaction point of view and to highlight open problems in transaction management arising in Electronic Commerce applications by reflecting the discussions of the working group “Transactions and Electronic Commerce” held at the TDD Workshop.
