This is kind of what I'm looking for. Thanks. I think I can grab what I need now that I from about those files. I was hoping to make a "world atlas" of OFBiz, mostly to keep track of what is even out there (I haven't nearly been to all of it) and then down the road I hope to use some form of it, maybe as part of a larger PHP app, on my end to keep track of which end users have received training on which applications.

I was also trying to find a way to get the list automatically. I think that with Deepak's latest reply I can write a short shell script that will grab at least the top two levels and stick them into a format I can use, then down the road I can just run it again if the menus have changed. I've done it manually once, when creating a Wordpress theme menu that matched the menu layout in the OFBiz Tomahawk theme, and just didn't want to go through that whole process by hand again.

Hi Craig,

Main menu item rendered through webapp not from component. A component can
have multiple webapp. Ex.

All webapp will be display by defuaut as menu item, if app-bar-display is
set false it will not display as menu item.

And sub-menu items display from Decorator, We can set secondary menu at
decorator level

<set field="applicationMenuName" value="OrderAppBar" global="true"/>
<set field="applicationMenuLocation"

  MenuFactory.getMenuFromLocation method render these sub-menu items.
Please refer

Thanks & Regards

I'm not a dev, so a lot of what you had me read wasn't clear. I am
familiar with MySQL though. These menu "sub items" aren't listed in the db
anywhere? I'm looking manually now in my servers information_schema db, but
if you know how to save me looking through a gazillion column names, I'm
all ears. :) If you can't, no biggie. I'd just hate to look all this time
and find out in the end that they're not there.

Hi Craig,

Please have a look at LoginWorker.getAppBarWebInfos and ComponentConfig.
getAppBarWebInfos method.
For reference you can have a look at themes/flatgrey/template/AppBar.ftl

I'm running a clean slate install on MySQL, and trying to locate the main
OFBiz menu. Looks like there's a db named ofbiztenant with a table called
COMPONENT, and that appears to have at least the top level menu items.
Where are the others?

Nothing official, but I'm trying to make a spreadsheet or something I can
print out for myself so that I can keep track of things going on in each
part of the software. I don't see the big picture yet, and I'm hoping
might help. :)
