It makes a very good impression (http://www.syracus.net) - thank you.
What I am interested in are sources of such solutions one could use 
after few minor modifications. BigFish source is a nice example however 
a bit complex for the start (for me yet).

The OFBiz framework makes a *very* good impression however with long 
learning curve. I am missing examples (open sources) of ready to go 
(with minor changes) OFBiz applications. I have found already some free 
available documentation but I need some time more to study it en détail 

I guess there are also some open solutions for websites and special 
portal solutions like eg. *uPortal*.

I am not sure about the second book (*Apache OfBiz Cookbook* from 
*Apache OFBiz Development: The Beginner's Tutorial* [eBook]

*Apache OfBiz Cookbook* [eBook]

Or do you mean some other books like:
The Data Model Resource Book, *Vol. 1*: A Library of Universal Data 
Models for All Enterprises
The Data Model Resource Book, *Vol. 2*: A Library of Data Models for 
Specific Industries
The Data Model Resource Book, *Vol. 3*: Universal Patterns for Data 

There is also another book:
Title: *OFBiz E-Commerce Out-Of-The-Box* Author: Ruth Hoffman 
Publication Date: Winter 2011

I don't have the possiblity just to look inside them as they are locally 
not available in book stores here (Zürich).

Vielen Dank. Ich schreibe Dir direkt (falls es für Dich OK ist).

Thank you in advance for feedback like ideas or hints.
