  1. Replace PL/SQL with Java or declarative business logic

    All legacy PL/SQL code in Openbravo should be converted to either middle tier Java that interacts with the database through DAL or to meta data rules. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=8032

              • Hierarchical product categories

                Currently products belong to only one category and categories are not hierarchical. This entry requests: 1) Allow the creation of multiple product categorization schemes. Each scheme is used for a specific business purpose, for example the categorization that is used for demand planning is different from the categorization that is used for a sales catalog. 2) For each categorization scheme, allow a hierarchical definition of categories. For example: - Trucks - 18 wheelers - pick up tracks - Cars - SUV - Minivan - Sedan - Station wagon - ... 3) For each categorization scheme, specify whether a product can…

                • Implement SAF-T export capabilities

                  SAF-T (Standard Audit File for Tax Purposes) is an file format to export accounting data from software. It is part of an OECD recommendation for business and accounting software (http://www.oecd.org/document/57/0,2340,en_2649_34897_34910329_1_1_1_1,00.html). In Portugal, since the start of 2008, the capability of exporting a SAF-T file is required from all accounting software. The specific file format for Portugal is SAFT-PT (http://www.assoft.pt/saft-pt/). It would be important to have this export capability in OpenBravo as it is likely that other European countries will adopt the SAF-T standard.. See also https://issues.openbravo.com/view.php?id=3453

                  • State transitions for documents and buttons

                    Currently the document life cycles are not consistently managed in terms of metadata. From one side, a significant portion of the business logic is hard coded; from the other, it is not done consistently. For example: an invoice goes from Draft to Complete pressing the Complete button. But it goes from Not Posted to Posted pressing the Not Posted button..

                      • Add support for early payment or cash discounts

                        "One study found that if the credit term is net 30 days, the money, on average, arrived 45 days after the invoice date. In order to speed up these payments, some companies give credit terms that offer a discount to those customers who pay within a shorter period of time. The discount is referred to as a sales discount or cash discount, and the shorter period of time is known as the discount period. For example, the term 2/10, net 30 allows a customer to deduct 2% of the net amount owed if the customer pays within 10 days of…

                              Hi,

                              We are meeting a case in the usage of IOpenbravo as the following :
                              1. Create a Contractual Document (Let's say a Sales Order) in Openbravo, book the Order.
                              2. print the PDF, save it
                              3. Go to one of the records associated to that Order ( for example the Business Partner ) and change it to something different. ( It could happen if a company's name changed for instance)
                              4. print the PDF again, the name of the Business Partner has changed. Actually it also changed in the Sales Order Window itself...

                              This sounds logic, but could create…

Is it possible to plug Libero into Openbravo?

                                    • Be able to filter by BP defined as Summary Level

                                      Actually Summary Level definition is just an informative definition. But it would very useful to be able to filter by BP defined as Summary Level when running reports

                                        Sorry but this idea is not clear to me. Can you please explain in more details?
                                        Which reports are you referring to? What are you trying to achieve?

                                      • Integrate bitcoin for payment option

                                        Likely best done via API with Bitpay or coinbase.

                                          Hi!

                                          Thank you for the idea.

                                          As of now it is not in our Roadmap similar to other specific payment methods. Why so?

                                        • implement business logic in scala

                                          It seems, that scala (http://www.scala-lang.org/) would be a perfect fit for implementing the business logic in an java based erp, as it integrates perfectly with java. Using a scala based "Business DSL" (domain specific Language) could be a good trade off between "low level" java coding and the common erp parameter hell.
