Mathieu Lirzin commented on OFBIZ-10866:
----------------------------------------

Hello Jacques,

Renaming the {{gradlew}} wrapper {{ofbiz}} would be really confusing since they are *not*
the same program.

> Of course, we must note that this forces all users to change their scripts as well (both
proposition your and Pierre's)...

This is not the case at all, the patch I am proposing is only adding the run task and suggesting
in the {{README.adoc}} to use it, I am not removing the {{./gradlew "ofbiz ..."}} rule tasks,
so scripts will not break.

> Gradle provides some useful standard plugins for launching and packaging applications
via the the {{application}} and {{distribution}} plugins.
>  * The [{{application}} plugin|https://docs.gradle.org/current/userguide/application_plugin.html]
provides a {{run}} task which is an alternative to the rule based generated run tasks.  Arbitrary
command line arguments can be passed to OFBiz via the {{--args}} option.
>  * The [{{distribution}} plugin|https://docs.gradle.org/current/userguide/distribution_plugin.html]
is complementing the {{application}} plugin by providing a straightforward and easy way to
distribute OFBiz with its dependencies which is convenient in a deployment context.  After
extracting the distribution archive, OFBiz can then be launched via a robust shell or batch
script.
> The default targets must be been refined to not build the distribution archives which
can be a bit long in the context of OFBiz where we have a lot of dependencies.
