Step-by-step guide

  1. If you used to run one of the download-* Ant targets (download-PG-JDBC, download-activemq, download-mySQL-JDBC) those have been removed.
    See  OFBIZ-7793 - Getting issue details... STATUS  if interested in more details
  2. If you use your own custom libs (jar) shared by several of your own components you might put these libs in the lib folder just under the OFBiz root folder.
    You will find a README there with more details. You might also read  OFBIZ-7910 - Getting issue details... STATUS  for history reason.
  3. It's clearly documented in the README.MD and below, but you might be interested to know that the debug port is now the standard 5005 rather than previously the OFBiz specific 8091
  4. If you are interested by all the changes done in the context of the Ant to Gradle migration please check  OFBIZ-7534 - Getting issue details... STATUS .
