Abstract: In this paper, we describe our experience in the development of the e-commerce simulation platform, Simulation of E-Commerce (SIMEC3.0), which has been designed and implemented by the researchers in the Economic Science Laboratory, China since 2002. We have incorporated some auto agents and completed the migration of the platform from Weblogic server to Tomcat server. We describe how to use the |Component Extraction Technology| to extract some components of the system based on Weblogic server. We will compare the SIMEC3.0 system with other e-commerce systems. The SIMEC3.0 has been used to support teaching and learning in Renmin University of China since 2002. We believe that |learning by doing| of e-commerce is one of the most effective ways to support teaching and learning the subject e-commerce.
