Welcome to the OFBiz Technical Documentation Wiki. In this wiki you will find a wide range information to help you setup, use or develop OFBiz.
Once you have verified the minimum system requirements, you can, your own version of OFBiz. Anyone looking to administer OFBiz will need to read the Apache OFBiz Technical Production Setup Guide.
If you are going to be using OFBiz in other languages or currencies then please take a look at our Internationalization / Localisation Guide
There are several resources available if you are going to be developing in OFBiz, a Beginners Tutorial, Developer Best Practices Guide, some detailed background information on the Data Model and Framework that OFBiz is built on, and a detailed guide that describes theand also the Service Engine.
We also have some basic diagrams that can help you understand the framework components.
If you are looking for more detail then we have a range of more detailed guide around the Entity Engine (Entity Engine Guide, Entity Engine Configuration Guide), Service Engine (Service Engine Guide, Service Engine Configuration Guide)
We also have a section on FAQs, Tips & Tricks and How Tos.
|NOTE: May need to split that FAQ page up because its has more tips and tricks and how tos rather than being really question based|
If you are upgrading from a previous version of OFBiz then please take a look at the Data Migration Guide which can be used in conjunction with the Apache OFBiz Technical Production Setup Guide.
Please see below for links to all our technical information and remember if you have any questions then please post a message on our community mailing lists .
