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):

  • trunk: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/trunk ofbiz
  • release14.12: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/branches/release14.12 ofbiz.14.12
  • release13.07: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/branches/release13.07 ofbiz.13.07
  • release12.04: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/branches/release12.04 ofbiz.12.04
  • website: $ svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/site ofbiz-website

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

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

As an alternative you may download a "ready-made" package at OFBiz Nightly Trunk Snapshots (using the SVN repository is the recommended way).

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. 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 the config file found in your $HOME/.subversion directory

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

OFBiz Website Repository and Access

To update the ofbiz.apache.org website and related xsd files:

  1. Check out the site files from svn: https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/site/
  2. Update the required website and xsd files and commit. You may use the build-website, docs-all or copy-dtds ant targets
  3. the updates will be immediately published: therefore it is important that the changes are discussed and approved by the OFBiz PMC

The source repository for the templates for the Buildbot pages is here; in order to deploy them create a Jira ticket at Infra.
