PACKT Publishing has published a new book about Apache Open For Business (Apache OFBiz). The book "Apache OFBiz Development: The Beginner's Tutorial" is targeting newcomers to Apache OFBiz who need to start developing with Apache OFBiz as soon as possible. Additionally the authors provide tips and tricks and they go through some deep details of how to tweak Apache OFBiz for better performance. Here are more details about the book cited from PACKT Publishing book's site:

Written by two leading OFBiz consultants, this hands-on tutorial guides newcomers through the basics of Apache Open For Business, walking them through the creation and customization of real-world business applications.

Apache OFBiz (Open For Business) is versatile open-source enterprise automation software that powers many small and medium sized businesses around the world. It incorporates a number of mature applications such as ERP, e-Commerce, MRP and CRM.

Built around an MVC framework with common logic, data model and process components, Ofbiz allows existing and bespoke applications to be added through a component-based architecture. Ofbiz includes a mature suite of enterprise applications that integrate and automate a company's many business needs.

This easy-to-read book will quickly enable newcomers to get hands-on with OFBiz. It provides an overview of the main modules and employs illustrated examples that show readers how to build exemplary business applications rapidly. Covering the main aspects of the Model-View-Controller framework, the reader will gain a working knowledge of Widgets, Entities, and The Service Engine. The authors also describe how to tweak OFBiz, and offer valuable performance and development tips. By navigating through the flow of OFBiz and providing insight into the thousands of examples that already exist in the core code they have made this book a must-have for anyone looking to get started with OFBiz.


This is an accessible step-by-step tutorial that introduces readers to the world of OFBiz through practical examples and clear explanations. It will guide you through the framework, teach you to tweak OFBiz and master widgets, entities, and permissions, and give you the knowledge to customize your own bespoke applications.

Who this book is written for

This book is for developers who want to build easily deployed and supported OFBiz applications. No previous knowledge of OFBiz is assumed, but readers should be comfortable in a Java development environment.

It is a pleasure of mine to review such book and I will write other blog entries to record my review comments and findings later.
