Issues found

  • Posterita WP POS expect that TAX Category has only one Tax Rate assigned to it.
  • Posterita create AR Invoice while POS Order type in Adempiere creates Invoice Indirect. This allows to distinguish Invoices creates by POS. Of course Business partner also can allow sot distinguish POS invoices, but more consitent behavior is to create Invoice Indirect.

Comparison of Posterita Web UI and Robert Klein Ajax Web UI

  • Robert Klein Ajax is more usable than Posterita WebUI
    • Attachment works in Robert Klein but not in Posterita.
    • Grid of Posterita is mess up.
    • Scrolling and navigation are mess up in Posterita.
    • Decimal point of numeric has many zeros in Posterita.
    • Robert Klein Web UI runs fast than Posterita.

Notes about installation

  • One Business partner must have column AD_OrgBP_ID set to Organization which is set in POS Terminal.
  • Execution of migration scripts.

  • How to setup?

Explained by Colin in irc:

-01) Login as System Admin and add new window for the table "U_POSTerminal".
-02) Use the "Create Fields" button on the "Tab" tab to add all the fields of this table.
-03) Go to System Admin->Gerenral Rules->System Rules->Menu window and create a new menu item.
-04) Select Window as the Action and point it to the new window you just created (by selecting it in the window dropdown).
-05) Log out and log back in as Garden Admin.
-06) Using you new window create a new POS terminal. Chose what ever you wish for the settings.
-07) Go to Quote-to-Invoice->Sales Orders->Web POS->
-08) Go to the role menu here and create a new record with "Web Menu" and "Role" = "GardenWorld Admin".
     Uou can add more if you wish but I think this is all that's needed for basic sales.

Seats/tables in a restaurant (or plane or cinema)

In my opinion the seat/table numbering problematic could be solved with the help of the entities AccommodationClass, AccommodationMap described in the book vol2. I will give you a short description of these entities and example of the "numbering issue" solution.

AccommodationClass - description: It is designed to store classes information (these could be plane, bus classes, table types, chair types, room types etc)

AccommodationClass - definition (based on the book but modified a little) fields: accClassId, parentAccClassId, description

AccommodationMap - description: Its idea is to provide information of the number of spaces offered by a fa/accClass. Here we can extend it to provide overbooking information and seat numbering information(the last two fields in the definition below) fields: mapId, accClassId, faId, nrOfSpaces, overBooked, number

Example: Define two tables.

- Table number 5 has 3 chairs. Chair with number 1 is baby_chair. The other two chairs with number 2 and 3 are high_chairs.
- Table number 9 has 2 chairs. Chairs number 1 and 2 are normal_chairs.

In FixedAsset relate the tables to the chairs.

FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=table1,  parentFixedAssetId=NULL
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=table2,  parentFixedAssetId=NULL
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=chair11, parentFixedAssetId=table1 //chair11 belongs to table1
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=chair12, parentFixedAssetId=table1 //chair12 belongs to table1
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=chair13, parentFixedAssetId=table1 //chair13 belongs to table1
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=chair14, parentFixedAssetId=table2 //chair14 belongs to table2
FixedAsset:fixedAssetId=chair15, parentFixedAssetId=table2 //chair15 belongs to table2

In Accommodationclass define the table/chair classes.

AccommodationClass: accClassId=tables,        parentAccClassId=NULL
AccommodationClass: accClassId=chairs,        parentAccClassId=NULL
AccommodationClass: accClassId=plane_classes, parentAccClassId=NULL
AccommodationClass: accClassId=baby_chair,    parentAccClassId=chairs;
AccommodationClass: accClassId=high_chair,    parentAccClassId=chairs;
AccommodationClass: accClassId=normal_chair,  parentAccClassId=chairs;

In AccommodationMap define how many places each table or chair has and which is its number.

AccommodationMap: accClassId=tables,        fixedAssetId=table1,  nrOfSpaces=3, number=5 //table number 5 has 3 chairs(faId=table1)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=baby_chair,    fixedAssetId=chair11, nrOfSpaces=1, number=1 //chair number 1 has one place(faId=chair11)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=high_chair,    fixedAssetId=chair12, nrOfSpaces=1, number=2 //chair number 2 has one place(faId=chair12)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=high_chair,    fixedAssetId=chair13, nrOfSpaces=1, number=3 //chair number 3 has one place(faId=chair13)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=tables,        fixedAssetId=table2,  nrOfSpaces=2, number=9 //table number 9 has two places(faId=table2)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=normal_chair,  fixedAssetId=chair14, nrOfSpaces=1, number=1 //chair number 1 has one place(faId=chair14)
AccommodationMap: accClassId=normal_chair,  fixedAssetId=chair15, nrOfSpaces=1, number=2 //chair number 2 has one place(faId=chair15)

In similar fashion you can define theaters, planes etc. Also overbooking data could be kept in the AccommodationMap entity which could be used for hotel reservations. Hourly reservations could be enabled as well with the introduction of the AccommodationSpot entity.

How to import product from csv file?

MySQL script commands to import a simple CSV spreadsheet of products and a collection of image files.

CSV file MUST have these columns:


The columns with a * must have different values for every product, otherwise the script will fail. The category IDs in the CSV file also have to match the IDs in the 'categories' database table.

 INFILE 'C:\\temp\\products.csv'
 INTO TABLE products
 SET ID = UUID(), TAXCAT = '001', ISCOM = 0, ISSCALE = 0;
  1. the images are loaded by searching a directory for files that have the same names as the products
SET @IMAGE_DIR = 'C:\\temp\\products\\images\\';
UPDATE products
             IFNULL(LOAD_FILE(CONCAT(@IMAGE_DIR, products.NAME, '.png')),
                    LOAD_FILE(CONCAT(@IMAGE_DIR, products.NAME, '.gif'))))
  1. to make the products appear in the catalog, their ids must be added to this table
INSERT INTO products_cat (PRODUCT)
 SELECT products.ID FROM products;

OpenXava hints

  • Naming convention
    • Utility classes are in org.openxava.util package.
    • An utility class must be in plural and its methods have to be static.
    • Example utility class: For dates called Dates.

OpenXava User hints

Hint.1 How do to search in detail mode?

Click on 'new', fill the fields, and click on 'Search'.

OpenXava Developer hints

Hint.1 Always use different properties names

Let's have component Organization

<component name="Organization">
		<property name="orgId" type="String" key="true" hidden="true" >
			<default-value-calculator class="org.openxava.calculators.UUIDCalculator" on-create="true" />
		<property name="orgName" type="String" size="30" required="false"/>

and component Warehouse

<component name="Warehouse">
		<property name="warehouseId" type="String" key="true" hidden="true" >
			<default-value-calculator class="org.openxava.calculators.UUIDCalculator" on-create="true" />
		<property name="warehouseName" type="String" size="30" required="false"/>

by this way in developer can define different names for properties:

organizationId=Organization ID
orgName=Organization Name
warehouseId=Warehouse ID
warehouseName=Warehouse Name

also it helps developer to understand well which exactly property he uses/modify.

Hint.2 Always create by hand DB migration scripts.

ORM(Hibernate) tools do not create proper DB migration scripts.

You can see to the left a grid whith the LIST mode of the PUPILS and the FIRST field is the ACTION to apply to the records. The A action (Detail of subjects of this pupil) is selected for the first pupil and the B action (Printing of his curriculum) is selected for the second pupil.

The actions possible are detailed in the combo on the TOP RIGHT of the window. Options 1 to 5 are standard (always available by default). The rest of actions are specific to the model .

Finally there is a button for executing ALL the actions at the same time.

The default actions are:

1.-Pick: For instance to select a Customer for a invoice. By using this action you choose your customer and return to previous model (invoice)

2.- Edit: To modifiy the record

3.- Copy: To create a new record but previously copying the information of an existing record that is very similar to the new one

4.- Delete: to delete the record

5.- See: To see the record in detail mode and READ ONLY

Liquibase Questions and Hints

Hint.1 How to update data?

Is there any way to update a row that already exists in a table (besides using <sql>)?

Currently there is not. I have considered creating an update tag but have not yet. The main reason I did not create it originally is that it seemed to not add a lot of value over the standard <sql> update statement and created a lot of typing.

For example:

<update table="person">
	<column name="username" value="newUsername">
	<where>username = 'oldUsername'</where>

seems like a lot of work compared to

<sql>UPDATE person SET username='newUsername' WHERE username='oldUsername'</sql>

Now that there is support for standardizing dates, Boolean values, etc. it may be worth creating however.

JSR-170 Note

I am trying to get user atributes using the JSR-186 specified way.
Here is the extract from portlet.xml:

Here is the code to get user attributes:

HashMap hmUserInfo = (HashMap)request.getAttribute(PortletRequest.USER_INFO);'

Liferay return first/last names ONLY in spite of the fact that all other information is presented for this user.
I entered it using Organization Admin portlet.


Move Table Header

Create following Header Listener

public class HeaderListener implements Listener, ControlListener { 
KTable table_ = null; 
Point initPoint = null; 
Tracker tracker = null; 
public HeaderListener(KTable table) { 
table_ = table; 
public void mouseDoubleClick(MouseEvent e) {  
public void mouseUp(int x , int y ) { 
Point p = table_.getCellForCoordinates(x, y); 
System.out.println("Up " + p); 
if ( 
(p.y < table_.getModel().getFixedHeaderRowCount()) &&  
(p.x >= table_.getModel().getFixedHeaderColumnCount()) && 
(p.x != initPoint.x) && 
(p.y == initPoint.y) 
//if (p.y == initPoint.y) { 
System.out.println("Move " + initPoint + " to " + p); 
((SpanModel)table_.getModel()).switchColumn(p.x, initPoint.x); 
initPoint = null; 
public void mouseDown(Event e) { 
Point p = table_.getCellForCoordinates(e.x, e.y); 
if ( 
(p.y < table_.getModel().getFixedHeaderRowCount()) &&  
(p.x >= table_.getModel().getFixedHeaderColumnCount()) 
initPoint = p; 
System.out.println("Down " + p); 

public void mouseMove(Event event) {  
int JITTER = 8; 
Display display = event.display; 
Shell shell = display.getActiveShell(); 
Rectangle tableLocation =, null, shell.getClientArea ()); 
System.out.println("table location " + tableLocation);  
Point p = table_.getCellForCoordinates(event.x, event.y);  
Rectangle rect = table_.getCellRect(p.x, p.y); 
int deltaX = initPoint.x - event.x, deltaY = initPoint.y - event.y; 
if (Math.abs (deltaX) < JITTER && Math.abs (deltaY) < JITTER) { 
tracker = new Tracker (table_, SWT.LEFT | SWT.RIGHT); 
tracker.setRectangles (new Rectangle [] {rect}); (); 
Rectangle finalPosition = tracker.getRectangles()[0];  
int posX = finalPosition.x + finalPosition.width / 2 ;//- tableLocation.x; 
int posY = finalPosition.y + finalPosition.height / 2 ;//- tableLocation.y; 
mouseUp (posX,posY); 
public void handleEvent(Event event) { 
switch (event.type) { 
case SWT.MouseDown: 
case SWT.MouseMove: 
if (initPoint == null) return; 
case SWT.MouseUp: 
public void controlMoved(ControlEvent e) { 
public void controlResized(ControlEvent e) {

Fork developers work in their free time! Excuse Me???

What Compiere defenders think.

Can you belive? I work for free? Please do not tell it to my wife... This is top secret.

  • post It looks that this post was deleted from Compiere forums. Compiere Inc. do not like what friends of Compiere think??? Just to prove that such post exist i posted whole post here

Having been in the ERP game for a very long time, I just find the bazaar a bit too risky for real life scenario and most of the clever developers involved are doing out of free time. I honestly dont even have free time to write this email, but I guess some people have more free time than others. So what people do in their free times is entirely up to them? The product is becoming massive yes, and to expect the couple of clever developers to maintain it within their "free" time would be EXTREMELY risky for any enterprise to put reliance on. Yes it may be more clever and even more transparent and yes many more extremely clever things will be released out of it. Question though is who is going to maintain it in their free time over the next couple of years and who actually needs to get paid to support it.
