Hello Rahul, As Taher explained, use of mini lang (simple service) is deprecated in OFBiz .
To answer your question, ============== And also why there is no java service written for "*create customer*" while there is java service for "*create Person*"? And what are the complexities involved in defining a service for "*create customer*" simple-method? ============== There was no need to have 'create customer' service because "A customer is a Person (or Party Group) in a Customer Role". So, to create a customer, you can use two services - createPerson (or createPartyGroup) and createPartyRole (add the party to CUSTOMER role). In a similar fashion, you can create Supplier, Dealer etc. You don't need a separate service of them. There were no complexities in defining "create customer" service, but we don't need it since we have various generic services which support the requirement.  https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/253b41060a295b8ab68bc78763cc129fc74b712cf776f8716022097f@%3Cdev.ofbiz.apache.org%3E - Best Regards, Swapnil M Mane hotwax.co On Sat, Jan 26, 2019 at 2:42 PM Taher Alkhateeb <slidingfilame...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi Rahul, > > Generally it is recommend to avoid simple services as they are deprecated > and being phased out.
