Welcome to Apache OFBiz!
All you need to run OFBiz is a 1.7 (version 7) JDK
(not just the JRE, the full JDK).
You can load the demo data (strongly advised if you are new to
OFBiz) with the following command on the command line
from the OFBiz home folder (in Unix-like operating systems
type "./ant" rather than "ant" to use the embed ant version
if you haven't installed it on your system) :
ant load-demo
Then start OFBiz:
ant start
(or "java -Xms128M -Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -jar ofbiz.jar")
(you can also run directly "ant load-demo start")
Once OFBiz starts, you can look at the demo storefront at:
the back office at:
and the administration interface at:
You can log in with the user "admin" and password "ofbiz".
To stop OFBiz:
ant stop
To get the list of available commands:
ant -p
You will also find several platform dependent scripts in the
"tools" folder (for example for Windows and Unix-like operating
systems, the startup scripts are startofbiz.bat and
Note that the default configuration uses an embedded Java database
(Apache Derby) and embedded application server components such as
Tomcat, Geronimo (transaction manager), etc.
