Subject Re: Can´t create order from quote
Date Wed, 17 Nov 2010 12:39:54 GMT

I have never used this feature.
the code that creates this is

 From a business flow, I don't see a use for this the way it is written.
you making a quote for a product from a supplier, this means you need to 
get the Suppliers Product Good ID, if your asking for price update to 
that supplier.
createQuoteFromCart does not do this.
This requires you have the supplier product in the system already so you 
have last price, which  also is not included in the quote process.
my experience in requesting a quote from a supplier usually means you 
don't have it in ofbiz yet. so using the createQuoteFromCart will not 
work as written.

if you have a need for this then I would suggest you review the code 
against normal business flow and make the modifications to it.

my 2 cents.
