    • What is OFBiz? ● OFBiz provides turn-key software for managing the operation of a business. ● OFBiz is also a library of pre-made processes and data structures that can be used as a kit for building customer business software without starting from scratch. ● OFBiz is Free Software written for the Java VM. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 5
    • OFBiz Features ● Advanced e-commerce (integrated catalog, smart pricing, order and sales management) ● Warehouse management and fulfillment (auto stock moves, batched pick, pack & ship) ● Manufacturing (manufacturing, events, tasks, etc.) ● Accounting (invoice, payment & billing accounts, fixed assets) ● Customer relationship management (Sales force automation) ● Content management (product content and reviews, documents, blogging, forums, etc) 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 6

    • Agenda What is OFBiz? Getting started. Using the software. Technical overview. Its about Community. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 8
    • A Quick Start ● Pull down the latest from SVN, build and run $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/trunk ofbiz ... checkout messages ... $ ./ant run-install ... build messages ... $ ./start-ofbiz.sh ... startup messages ... ● This will give a base install running on an embedded Derby database and web services listening on port 8080. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 9
    • Agenda What is OFBiz? Getting started. Using the software. Technical overview. Its about Community. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 10
    • http://localhost:8080/ecommerce OFBiz provides all the functionality you expect in a shopping cart. Customers can ship orders to multiple destinations in one shopping session, create or use gift cards. Products and prices can be configured to appear on specific dates. Many, many other features. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 11
    • Configurable products This sample product is a configurable PC. The user can specify a variety of options on the product. Configuration of the options impacts the final sale price based on the components included. Configurable products can drive complex pricing schemes that even include labor costs. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 12

    • Agenda What is OFBiz? Getting started. Using the software. Technical overview. Its about Community. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 14
    • Technical Overview ● The Entity Engine ● OFBiz apps work with relational data. ● The Entity Engine interface is similar to JDBC result sets but is more powerful. ● Entity Engine queries are database independent. The application is completely portable. ● A caching infrastructure accelerates lookups. Caching behavior can be tuned for each individual data structure. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 15
    • Entity Engine OrderHeader OrderRole orderId orderId orderTypeId roleTypeId orderDate partyId entryDate etc... statusId etc... In Java: GenericValue order = delegator.findByPrimaryKey(“OrderHeader”, UtilMisc.toMap(“orderId”, myOrderId)); List billingCustomers = order.getRelatedByAnd(“OrderRole”, UtilMisc.toMap(“roleTypeId”, “SHIP_TO_CUSTOMER”)); 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 16
    • Technical Overview ● The Service Engine ● All OFBiz functions are accessed through a single library of named services, as opposed to classes. ● Services can be written in any BSF (Bean Scripting Framework) language, even procedural languages. ● Services can be delegated to other machines via SOAP or even message passing (ie. JMS). 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 17
    • Service Engine: An Example Service <service name="quickShipEntireOrder" engine="simple" auth="true" location="org/ofbiz/shipment/shipment/ShipmentServices.xml" invoke="quickShipEntireOrder"> <description>Quick Ships An Entire Order Creating One Shipment Per Facility and Ship Group. All approved order items are automatically issued in full and put into one package. The shipment is created in the INPUT status and then updated to PACKED and SHIPPED. </description> <attribute name="orderId" type="String" mode="IN" optional="false"/> <attribute name="originFacilityId" type="String" mode="IN" optional="true"/> <attribute name="setPackedOnly" type="String" mode="IN" optional="true"/> <attribute name="shipmentShipGroupFacilityList" type="List" mode="OUT" optional="false"/> </service> 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 18
    • Service Entity Condition Actions ● Service entity condition actions allow “AOP like” triggering of other orthogonal services when some system service is called. <!-- if new statusId of a SALES_SHIPMENT is SHIPMENT_PACKED, create invoice --> <eca service="updateShipment" event="commit"> <condition-field field-name="statusId" operator="not-equals" to-field- name="oldStatusId"/> <condition field-name="statusId" operator="equals" value="SHIPMENT_PACKED"/> <condition field-name="shipmentTypeId" operator="equals" value="SALES_SHIPMENT"/> <action service="createInvoicesFromShipment" mode="sync"/> </eca> 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 19
    • Agenda What is OFBiz? A quick start. Technical overview. Community is critical. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 20
    • Agenda What is OFBiz? A quick start. Technical overview. Customized applications. Community is critical. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 21
    • Community is Critical ● Software is a unique way to share successful business practices. ● Management through the Apache Foundation ensures that there are not conflicting business interests. ● Apache is a stable and proven organization that businesses can safely trust in the long term. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 22
    • Community is Critical ● Most programmers work for companies that do not produce commercial software. ● If business programmers share common infrastructures (ie. accounting) then more energy can be devoted to writing code that improves their specific business. ● By sharing code, small to medium size businesses can afford the kinds of custom software that is usually for large companies. 2007 JavaOneSM Conference | Session XXXX | 23
