Subject Re: Looking for an experience Java programmer with OFBiz experience
Date Wed, 22 May 2013 10:26:11 GMT
I feel like I owe another apology to the OFBiz developers. Though my
initial remarks were accidental (and embarrassing), I was wrong not to
acknowledge that OFBiz has a wealth of functionality that Moqui does not
approach at this time. And my lack of first hand knowledge of all the work
that has gone into upgrading OFBiz is no excuse for not acknowledging that.
I know that I will need and want to use OFBiz for the rest of my career and
those who have put so much effort into making it the valuable product that
it is should be commended, for they will never get full payback for their
work. Thanks for all that you have done.

- Al Byers
