Apache OFBiz News - September 2019

Apache OFBiz News September 2019

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

New PMC Member

The OFBiz PMC has invited Pranay Pandey to become a new member of the committee and we are glad to announce that he has accepted the nomination. Please join us in welcoming and congratulating Pranay in his new role on the project, and also thanking him for all his contributions.

Best of both Groovy worlds: compile and on the fly

The community discussed how OFBiz users can have benefits of using Groovy with compilation as well as on the fly. Mathieu proposed to move Groovy scripts to/src/main/groovy/ and after adding the necessary package names, a developer can have continuously built on any changes in Gradle source sets with "gradlew --continuous" command. Besides compilation, it will enhance the integration in your IDE, and add the possibility to re-use methods from
these script migrated to explicit classes.
Thank you Jacques for initiating the thread, Mathieu for the initial proposal on OFBIZ-10226 and to everyone who contributed to this productive discussion.
