  4. A release 4.0 branch is now available for ofbiz.
  • updated FinAccounts added isRefundable flag; and replenishPaymentId to link a payment method to a finaccount for auto-replenish modes. The fulfillment service also sets this ID by default to the CC or EFT account used in the order which creates the finaccount
  • Adding a PartyAcctgPreference.refundPaymentMethodId field and relation to PaymentMethod to store a default paymentMethodId for use when other refund payment methods fail (old CC orders) or are unspecified (offline payment) and using that payment method in the processRefundReturn service. (r 532490)
  • fist pass (not fully tested) of refund financial account; also fixed replenish code to use the defined paymentMethod instead of picking one off the user's account. miscellaneouse FinAccount enhancements. (r 532504, 532505, 532506)
  • FinAccount service credit (r 532542)

  • Returning failure instead of error from the refundPayment service but instead cascade to the 'filler' payment correctly. (r 532804)
  • added more detailed information for financial accounts when used for payment on orders (r 532933)
  • When a payment method is selected in the cart, if it is associated to a billing address, the cart verifies that the location of the billing address is allowed for the products in the cart before setting it. (r 533045, 533095)
  • have separate menus for creation of sales and pruchase invoices and make sure the organizationCompany is in the proper party field. In the editInvoice screen do not allow the organization party to be changed and that the sequential numbering is interupted. also put in the proper classes for the buttons in invoice and payment. (r 532739)
Base and Framework
  • now adds the component name to the servlet context in catalinacontainer (r 531230)
  • removed no longer needed keystores for ofbizcerts.jks and ofbiztrust.jks (r 531271)
  • refactored x509 implementations; now it will use the certificate to determine the userlogin; tomcat changed to ignore cert files (just pass through) so all checking can be handled by ofbiz; login worker updated to use new method of cert checking; added isser entity to configure what issuers are allowed to sign login certs (the certificate must also be included in a trust store) new component based trust/cert stores configured in ofbiz-component.xml (r 531272, 531546, 531547)
  • added log message when error in SSLImpl (r 532040)

  • added UomWorker (r 532557)
  • added getLocation method to ComponentConfig (r 532577)
  • Small change so that on login if previous request was login, logout, or checkLogin then it will null the request name so it goes to the default; this avoids a login/logout funny loop that resulted in ServerHit/UserLoginHistory entries with duplicate pks because they happen within one second (r 532993)
  • Small change so that after login will redirect to main page instead of going to login page (which makes sense for backend apps, not so much for ecommerce (r 532994)
  • Some fair refactoring of the VisitHandler class to make it more resilient and centralize some of the data gathering in the ControlServlet; along with this are fixes for a couple of problems that caused the initial request data to be missing from the Visit especially on logout which cleared the session; this has been broken for a long time so is hopefully resolved now (r 533037)
  • Implemented service to set the estimated ship dates for order items that need production, based on scheduled outstanding production runs. (r 532685, 532721, 532795, 532797)

  • New service that computes and returns the OrderItemShipGroup estimated ship date based on the associated items. If maySplit=Y, then the ship group's ship date is the earliest of all of the items. If the maySplit=N, then it's the latest of the estimated items' dates. For now I've considered the OrderItemShipGrpInvRes.promisedDatetime as the estimated ship date for the reserved items.

  • sales invoice by product/category report; intended mostly for use to get data for external accounting systems that cant handle knowing about all products or customers or invoices (r 524762, 524993, 525404, 525417, 526361, 526414)

  • service auto field map will now look in parameters Map and context just as the entity-one one does (r 525300)
  • Changed submit disable code to disable for 2 seconds then re-enable; had to do some tricky stuff with the cross-page timer, but works in Firefox and IE (r 525629)
  • Removed jdbc jars for derby tools, hsqldb, p6spy (r 525679, 525716)

  • added missing SecureRandom to SSL Factory (r 528069)
  • A fairly dramatic change required because the DatasourceInfo stuff was being mostly ignored for most of the sql generation code, especially in the view entity stuff; fixing this resulted in a problem with derby requiring adding the alias-view-columns=false attribute to the datasource element in the entityengine.xml file; in any case, the somewhat tricky and funny but useful option of using a view-entity in a sub-select is now working properly (r 528801)
  • Changed postgres config to not alias columns in views (r 528862)
  • refactor UI elements in the Common component. (r 528925, 528926, 528927, 529136)

(r 526372)
  • Changed saveUpdatedCartToOrder to call the new cancelOrderItemNoActions service so that we can avoid recreateOrderAdjustments altogether which doesn't appear to be necessary when using updateApprovedOrderItems (r 526491)
  • Moved the sendOrderChangeNotification seca so that only a single notification is sent when editing an order (r 526496)
  • Removed a bad assignment from recreateOrderAdjustments, which has probably been causing some of the problems we've been having with editing/canceling order items (r 528792)
  • A few more fixes related to editing/cancelling orders (r 529138)
  • comment out some code which was not used in viewprofile but causing crashes when trying to set up for security (r 524350)

  • Refactored into a new screen (based on widgets) all the forms to edit and view the product store shipping estimates. Also modified the createShippingEstimate service to better handle recent changes to data model and quantityBreaks. (r 525223)
  • few changes to use entity list iterators when doing inventory lookups; added code to get totals from serialized inventory records; next to add view to get totals (instead of doing math in simple methods) (r 525264)
  • implemented worker methods to test if a item is available for selling (r 525850)

  • Some enhancements to product search to support shorter parameter alternatives; parameter string generation uses these now (r 528633)
  • Fixed problem with category search in sub-categories caused by the include/exclude/alwaysInclude stuff added a while back; note that there is still a problem with excludes in certain circumstances (r 528686)
  • Added a EntityConditionValue implementation that does a sub-select on another entity; initial example in the ProductSearch class (r 528790)
  • Fixed feature and category constraints with exclude using the new sub-select stuff; now seems to work as expected/desired (r 528791)
  • Added code so that the feature category stuff would actually do something instead of just treating the feature category ids as feature ids; this required use of a view-entity in a sub-select which required a bunch of lower level changes so that the DatasourceInfo settings would actually be used in the sql generation stuff; all seems to be working now, at least on derby (r 528804)
  • Committed these checkImageUrl services to help fix the problem that can be caused by the setAllProductImageNames. We should probably use some of the logic from these services to update that to check and see if the images exists and only populate the defaults if they do - but that can be for another day (r 528829)
  • Added an additional image reference to ProductCategoryLinks for greater flexibility (r 529093)

  • Hidden completed and closed production runs in calendars. (r 525057)
  • Fixed bug with orderHeader being used when it might not exist, making a huge error message for bad variable, NPE equivalent, rather than showing order not found message (r 525164)
  • Russian translation (r 528928)
opentaps CRM
  • VOIP integration support
