Apache OFBiz is a framework and a suite of applications for the automation of enterprise tasks (e.g. ERP, CRM, MRP, E-Commerce). Although usable out of the box, OFBiz often requires the customization of some of its components for managing specific business processes. In order to rapidly and effectively integrate new functionalities, developers need a programming environment that allows to focus on the business logic without being distracted by low level coding details. Up to now, the best practice has been to use Minilang, an xml based Domain Specific Language (DSL) developed by the OFBiz community, together with plain Java and Groovy, when more flexibility is needed. In this presentation, Jacopo Cappellato will outline the limitations of the current approach and will propose a new Groovy based DSL that could become the only language you'll need to know for the customization of OFBiz.
