Subject RE: Extending OFBiz: The BigFish eCommerce Project
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2011 13:59:33 GMT
Hans,

I'm new to ofbiz; also to the tools and components that it comprises having
come from a Windows .NET C# background.

I'm interested in your comment about it being a pity that only ftl is used.
Can you expand a bit on that?

What are the shortcomings of ftl?
What alternative(s) would you recommend and why?

The whole area of UI, especially simplified and deployed as an end-user
package will feature heavily in a project due to kick off in January.

Thanks,

Gareth.

I think this is pretty interesting, it is an implementation of a 'simple'
OFBiz component all in a single webapp....a pity that only ftl is used, but
still......

A demo version would be helpfull.

what is the license of this contribution, is it a contribution?

Regards,
Hans
