Apache OFBiz News - August 2020

Apache OFBiz News August 2020

Welcome to our regular monthly round-up of OFBiz news. This month we have news about the Headless Commerce plugin, new PMC Member and Committer along with our usual list of features, improvements, and Statistics.

Headless Commerce Plugin

Headless commerce is the decoupling of the presentation layer (frontend) of an eCommerce from the backend such that both are able to function independently. This decoupling is achieved by using APIs to expose core backend functionalities. By decoupling frontend from the backend - user interface, social commerce, mobile apps, IoT, and many more – can be changed or updated individually, without interfering with the backend. Data is available to separate frontend applications via API calls and the backend runs invisibly in the background. During this month, the community discussed implementing an OFBiz plugin to achieve it.
Here is the link to the mail thread for more insights.

Thank you Arpit Mor for initiating it and to everyone who contributed to this valuable discussion.

New PMC Member and Committer

The OFBiz PMC has invited Pawan Verma to become a new member of the committee & Devanshu Vyas to become a committer to the project and we are glad to announce that they have accepted the nomination. Please join us in welcoming and congratulating them in their new role on the project, and also thanking them for all their contributions.

Moving third party shipping integrations to plugins

During this month, the community discussed moving third party shipping integrations from applications to plugins. As an initial step, Mridul proposed to introduce a new entity “ProductStoreShipmentSettings” to configure available shipping gateway services for shipping carriers at the product store level. The above change would enable further efforts to refactor the hardcoded reference with configurable and move these integrations to plugins without losing any available support in applications.

Here are some links for more insights:

  2. Mail thread

Thank you Mridul Pathak for the proposal and to everyone who provided valuable input to his proposal.

Ongoing efforts to fix lint issues

In our previous post, we shared information about the ongoing efforts fixing the lint issues. During this month, the community worked on fixing almost 12k issues identified using the linting tool checkstyle available with OFBiz as Gradle plugin.
Refer OFBIZ-11350 for more insights.

Thank you, Suraj Khurana, Jacques Le Roux, Pritam Kute, and to everyone who contributed to the discussion and the effort.
