Mantis, the new Openbravo bug tracking system enters into the beta process

with 4 comments

If you have been participating on the Openbravo ERP or POS Acceptance Test you have noticed that we have started to use the Mantis issue tracker system at Openbravo. Mantis provides many benefits over SourceForge Tracker, the system that we have been traditionally using. Among them: better reporting, advanced query features, custom fields, tags and many others; all of this, coupled with a better system performance and an open source license.

We are still in the testing phase for the new issue tracker and we are tacking advantage of the ERP 2.40 alpha cycle to, at the same time, test our Mantis deployment. During a period of time of approximately two weeks, we will be using simultaneously Mantis -for issues on the 2.40 alpha release- and Source Forget Tracker -for issues on the production releases. After that period, Mantis will be fully in production and it would be the only system.

You can access the new tracker at issues.openbravo.com. We invite you to test it at any time. If you are testing 2.40 alpha, we would also prefer if you logged issues there while if you are using any other release, we would ask you to continue use SourceForge (but do not worry, we will attend to your request no matter where you log them). If you have any feedback, you can post it in the Openbravo Open Discussion forum. You can also log defects and feature requests on our Mantis implementation directly in Mantis by logging an issue in the Mantis@OB project.

When Mantis enters finally into production, we will blog about it and we will update the bug guidelines and other documents in the wiki.

  1. Hi, I’m a java programmer, Camelia Boban.
    I start to use OpenbravoERP with iReport (someone said me that it’s necessary iReport 2.0.4 not 2.0.5)and I have some problems.
    Opening RptC_Invoice.jrxml on iReport 2.0.4, I include 2 dinamic text fields, one with the espression editor $P{BASE_WEB}+”/images/CompanyLogo_small.gif” (I want change the default logo with my own), second with the espression editor $F{dateinvoiced} (with the espression class “java.util.Timestamp”, I also tried “java.util.Date”).
    I save the file RptC_Invoice.jrxml, I compile having a new file RptC_Invoice.jasper. I ovveride the 2 files on C:\OpenbravoERP\AppsOpenbravo\src\org\openbravo\erpReports, I made on DOS C:\OpenbravoERP\AppsOpenbravo>ant compile, then ant war, I saved my new war on C:\xampp\tomcat\webapps.
    I start Tomcat, I went on Explorer on http://localhost:8080/openbravo. I click Print invoice but doesn’t work, my changes are not visible.
    Openbravo said “Error evaluating expression : Source text : $F{dateinvoiced}”, Tomcat said:
