Apache OFBiz® Source Repository

Apache Subversion

If you are not familiar with Apache Subversion and you don't have an SVN client tool, the following links will be useful:

Public Access

Anyone can checkout or browse the source code in the OFBiz public Subversion (SVN) repository.

To checkout the source code, simply use the following command (if you are using a GUI client, configure it appropriately).

Note: since the trunk was split into ofbiz-framework and ofbiz-plugins, the specialpurpose and hot-deploy directories have disappeared. New components must be put in a plugins directory which works as was the hot-deploy directory. For OFBiz existing components, check them out using the Gradle tasks below.
To check out a component, in a created on the fly plugins directory, use the pullPluginSource Gradle task.
To get all components use pullAllPluginsSource. Beware this deletes a previously existing plugins directory.

  • trunk framework: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/ofbiz-framework/trunk ofbiz-framework
  • trunk plugins: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/ofbiz-plugins/trunk ofbiz-plugins
  • tools: $ svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/tools
  • release16.11: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/branches/release16.11 ofbiz.16.11
  • website: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/site ofbiz-website

There are also 2 type of Git repositories, one for committers and one for users at GitHub

To browse the repository, you can use one of the following links:

OFBiz Committers

Developer access requires a special account which is provided by the OFBiz adminstrators. If you have a developer account you can access the repository through HTTPS. When checking in, you will be prompted your userID and password

When you first connect you will be prompted to accept the SSL certificate. Verify the certificate is for svn.apache.org. After verification, select option 'P' to permanently add to your SVN configuration.

Subversion can handle keyword expansion, eol conversion as well as may other features. Most of these features are configured on the client level rather than on the server (some [AUTO-PROPS] properties are handled on the server). To make this easy on developers and to provide a standard configuration, the official OFBiz Subversion client configuration file can be found here.
This file should replace, or be merged with, the config file found in your $HOME/.subversion directory

  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Subversion\config or %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Subversion\config
  • Linux: ~/.subversion/config
