Hi,

I am trying to evaluate and learn to develop with Apache OFBiz.  I am completely new to all of this!  I just started looking at this today.


As I was exploring the default e-commerce plugin, I found that it is very dated and they have not released themes for it other than the default. Then, I found https://github.com/ORRTIZ/ecbootstrap. This appears to be modern plugin I could use instead, which I was quite excited to see. But, when I try to use it, I'm encountering bugs. For some reason, gradlew blows up with errors about reading XML data in that project.

I'm using the latest OFBiz source, and Java JDK. This plugin is a couple of years old, so I figure there is some incompatibility.

Since you are in this OFBiz mailing list, and discussing bootstrap, I thought perhaps you could be of help, and this repo I found might be of use to you as well.
