Subject Re: Funambol Integration (was: Entities Id as VARCHAR)
Date Thu, 07 Apr 2011 08:44:58 GMT
Hi Mike, Adrian,

>From the start in Opentaps it's only intended to work with Funambol Outlook Plugin. But
I think you can extend from there, need more
work...

See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-4247

I have still to attach the certificate I specially created (I don't remember where I put it
;o). For the Opentaps part even after
clean+export+zip it's still 100MB+. So I can't attach it to Jira (max 10MB). I'm uploading
it to my own server and will put a link
from Jira

I hope I did not forget anything, anyway easy to add later...

Jacques
