--------------------------------------

             Summary: Use the ‘application’ and ‘distribution’ plugins
                 Key: OFBIZ-10866
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-10866
             Project: OFBiz
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: Trunk
            Reporter: Mathieu Lirzin
            Assignee: Mathieu Lirzin
             Fix For: Upcoming Branch


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.
