Welcome to Apache OFBiz!
All you need to run OFBiz is a 1.6 (version 6) JDK
(not just the JRE, the full JDK).
You can load the demo data (strongly advised) with the following
command on the command line from the OFBiz home folder (in Unix-like
operating systems type "./ant" rather than "ant"):
ant load-demo
Then start OFBiz with the following command:
ant start
(or "java -Xms128M -Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=128m -jar ofbiz.jar")
Once OFBiz starts, you can look at the demo storefront at:
and the administration interface at:
You can log in with the user "admin" and password "ofbiz".
You can stop OFBiz with the command:
ant stop
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
For more details about running a build, or for information on
getting, building, and running the source please see the
Apache OFBiz Setup Guide:
Note that running with the default configuration uses an
embedded Java database (Apache Derby), and embedded application
server components such as Tomcat, Geronimo (transaction manager), etc.
To prepare OFBiz for production use the Basic Production Setup Guide
is a great place to start. It is available here:
