Data Extraction: How to Get Your Data Out of Apache OFBiz -Gil Portenseigne
Apache OFBiz contains a few different technologies that can be used to help make extracting data from the system easier and simpler. Screen Widgets, Apache Freemarker, BIRT, data files and Apache Groovy are all tools that can be used to help extract the data from OFBiz in the format you want.
In this presentation we go through some different usecases for data extraction and their recommended implementations in Apache OFBiz, following user requirements (volume, complexity, usage etc).
Finally there will also be a demonstration of how to use the existing utilities and tools within OFBiz to enable general data extraction. During the presentation it is hoped that we can start a discussion about potential future ideas and requirements around data extraction that could be introduced as new OFBiz features.
