Introduction
In order for the software to run in your server or PC, or notebook PC, the necessary
softwares has to be present in your environment. You have to first download them from
the internet. You have to practice downloading and installing each software as from
time to time their steps or processes may be changed. Usually they become easier as
each new version is published. Some of the latest versions may not be compatible with
the whole suite. Usually we use the common versions in use about 3 months to 1 year
from its publication date to ensure that they are most stable with the rest of the suite
softwares.
Installing a new software is the first most challenging task for a beginner. At times it is
still daunting for a seasoned practitioner. It can be approached in a fun way, accepting
the challenge as a learning process of discovery. I will encourage you to make learning
notes to not only improve this content but also share with the community that can earn
you some dimes in your kudo-bank.

What Is Your Operating System?

Is it Linux? Or Windows? Or Apple Mac? Different OS (operating system) will mean
you have to select different version of the software you will be downloading.

We know that most of you will be having Windows. But there is a way to make your
windows system to dual boot into Linux and switch to the FOSS stack:

For those who are used to Microsoft Windows and the installer style there is a tool
contributed by Kai Schaeffer of Germany. Please find that at topic

1.1 FOSS Stack
The following list is the FOSS stack needed for the complete ERP system to work on a
server PC. It is more for the Linux based platform. This is for a total FOSS stack where
the user need not pay a single cent of licensing. But this can be technically difficult for
newbies.

8.04 LTS
Java SDK

http://www.java.com/getjava/
Java helps run the ERP software.
It is in between the ERP and the
computer.

AD is the ERP application. It
runs on Java.
version 3.5.3a
The list above shows the latest version in use at date of writing. It will change with
time. However the links are quite dynamic with its latest info. It is good to avoid too old
or too new versions that is incompatible.

So we are basing our installation on Linux, Ubuntu flavour is known to be the easiest
and dead easy. Here is the link for an Ubuntu installation guide:

1.2 Windows Stack
You can follow the software list above for Java, Postgres and ADempiere. Choose the
Windows version. For ADempiere it is the file that ends in .zip.
An online guide to follow for installing ADempiere on a Windows platform is:
COMPUTER NAME MUST BE EASY
Ensure that your computer name is a short and easy name to type and not a long ma
-
chine name as it will be constantly repeated in the installation setup and certain system
operations. An easy name is easier to recall when needed.

1.3 Installing Java, PostgreSQL and ADempiere
We can obtain and install Java and Postgres direct from the Web too. Issue the following
command in your Ubuntu terminal:
Enter ‘root’ password for sudo, and answer ‘yes’.
It will most likely install the following. To see what is there for Postgres you use the
‘grep’ command.
The next page is another way to install Java and Postgres.

SETTING TRUST


After installing PostgtreSQL, Open a terminal

Do su and and enter your password (to login as root):

Do passwd postgres to set the user postgres a password which is required

Now we edit the pg_hba.conf (config) file for the trust declarations

Change the authentication method to trust

Add your database host IP under IPv4 if you are on a network (in my case my IP
is 192.168.0.161)
su root

1.4 Installing ADempiere in Windows
Here we repeat back the previous lessons on installing under linux OS but this time for
MS Windows.



PLATFORM

Windows XP SP2

STEP 1 - SETUP ENVIRONMENT

NOTE: if you are using Windows VISTA, make sure UAC is turned off through
user accounts.

Download & install the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) from

You can choose something like JDK 6.
It is best that you install your Java in a separate root directory i.e.
D:/Java6

Open Explorer and navigate to the D:\Java6 directory (or where-ever your Java is
installed) and carefully note the JDK directory you just installed. Note that you
may have a number of jdk and jre directories.

On your Desktop (or using Start button / My Computer) right click My Computer
and select System Properties / Advanced / Enviromental Variables

Alternatively: Start > Control Panel > System > Advanced tab > Enviromental
Variables

Add a new System Variable for your new JDK directory:

JAVA_HOME =
D:\Java6

(or whatever your JDK directory is called)

Add a new System Variable for your new JRE directory:

JRE_HOME = D:\Java6\jre1.6.0 (or whatever your JRE directory is called)

Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd

Type "echo %JAVA_HOME%" (without the quotes) and press Enter key
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

Asia e-University Master in Open Source ERP
Copyr i ght ( C) 2009 Redhuan D. Oon, ADempi er e Communi t y ERP Appl i c at i on Set up and Oper at i on
10

Carefully check the result to ensure the path to the JDK is correct

Type "echo %JRE_HOME%" (without the quotes)

Carefully check the result to ensure the path to the JRE is correct

Close the shell
STEP 2 - SETUP PATH

Still in My Computer / System Properties / Advanced / Environmental Variables:

In System Variables, scroll down to locate the Path variable and click Edit

Append the following JRE and PostgreSQL paths to the end of Path variable after
putting in a connector semi-colon ";" (Note: do not delete or overwrite the paths
that are already in the Path variable! Also, make sure you don't have an extra "\" at
the end of D:\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin)

D:\Java6\jre1.6\bin;D:\Java6\jre1.6\;C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin

Edit the commands that you just pasted to make sure that in each of the two JRE
references you have referred to your latest JRE. You must do this exactly, so open
Windows Explorer and navigate to D:\Java and check the exact naming of the JRE
directory!

Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd

Type PATH

Carefully check the result to ensure the two paths to the jre are correct
STEP 3 - APP LOCATION

You should have downloaded the ADempiere binary release from the above link

Extract the zip file to D\Adempiere . Extract to any root drive without parent
folder so that it is easy to recall.

Make sure you have achieved that all the Adempiere files are directly in the
D:\Adempiere directory and not in a chained directory like
D:\Adempiere\Adempiere
echo %JAVA_HOME%
Asia e-University Master in Open Source ERP
Copyr i ght ( C) 2009 Redhuan D. Oon, ADempi er e Communi t y ERP Appl i c at i on Set up and Oper at i on
11
STEP 4 POSTGRES SETUP

Download to your Desktop the PostgreSQL binary from
http://www.postgresql.org/


Unzip the PostgreSQL binary to a directory Postgres on your desktop (you can de
-
lete this and the zip file later)

Install PostgreSQL using the Windows msi installer. If you are re-installing Post
-
gresql then you need to remove Postgresql with Control Panel, then remove the
directory D:\Postgresql\ then remove the user postgres with "net user postgres
/delete".

If you are using Vista then you need to deactivate User Access Control from Con
-
trol Panel and install PostgreSQL using the Windows msi installer by right clicking
and selecting Run AS Administrator. If you don't have "Run As Administrator" on
the context menu, then install the following registry fix:
http://juice.altiris.com/download/1382/msi-run-as-administrator-context-menu-
for-vista

Install as a Service (later you can set the service to manual start if you don't want
PostgreSQL to run when you start-up)

Allow a Windows user to be created with name ‘postgres’ and password ‘postgres’

Instead of C select your local language

Instead of SQL-ANSI select UTF8

Allow a database administrator to be created with name ‘postgres’ and password
‘postgres’

12
MAKE SHORTCUTS
You can do this while the PostgreSQL database is being installed. You can save time by
creating Desktop shortcuts to:

D:\Adempiere\Run_Setup.bat

D:\Adempiere\utils\RUN_ImportAdempiere.bat (the bat may not be showing in
your Explorer)

D:\Adempiere\utils\RUN_Server2.bat

D:\Adempiere\utils\RUN_Server2Stop.bat

D:\Adempiere\RUN_Adempiere.bat
SETTING APP DATABASE
STEP 1

Open pgAdmin III from Start Button / PostgreSQL / pgAdmin III
STEP 2

Connect to postgresql

--Right click on the Postgresql database server and connect. --Enter password &
tick the save box

Now, expand all the database server tree by clicking the plus-sign
STEP 3

Down the bottom, you will see a user called "postgres".
Do not modify this user.

This database username will be entered during adempiere server setup or else you
will have errors in dump restore.

Right click on Login Roles and create a new user "adempiere" with password
"adempiere". Check superuser rights plus all boxes below superuser rights(see im
-
age below, left).

STEP 4

Now return to Database at the top and right click. Select create database. Name it
"adempiere" and select the owner "adempiere" and encoding "UTF8" (see image on
the right). Leave all the other variables blank.
Did You Know That?

Software is very expensive because of the man-days needed to develop and maintain it? It is
also due to the constant changes needed to make it to any specific condition.

ERP is complex? It is said that 92% of the ERP projects fail to meet all its stated objectives.

WINDOWS VERSION
If you installed a Desktop Shortcut as suggested while you were waiting for PostgreSQL
to install, then you can just click the Desktop icon RUN_setup
Otherwise:


Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd


Navigate to D:\adempiere


launch RUN_setup.bat
Continuing:


Click the Test button


Accept the Licence and Keys provided


Put in the correct parameters until the Test gives no errors and accepts 5432 as
the Database Port
You will need to change:


Database Type from oracleXE to postgresql


Database Name from xe to adempiere


Database Password to adempiere


System Password to postgres (or whatever you entered above for the database
administrator)


Don't change anything in the Mail Server settings unless you want to set-up
Adempiere for production purposes
You may also need to change the following:


Adempiere Home to C:\Adempiere (if somehow it has been set to the wrong lo
-
cation)


Database Server from <your-computer-name> to localhost


Application Server Web Port to 8080 (if 80 is being used by something else) and
SSL to 8443 (instead of 443)
When the Test is without errors, click the Save button at the bottom right and wait
until the deployment is finished

16
COMMON REASONS FOR ERRORS DURING SETUP


Error on JDK: install JDK (the JRE is not sufficient!)


Java 6 (such as update 4) does not work with some versions of Adempiere. If
there are application server or other errors it may be better to use the older Java 5
JDK and JRE, say 1.5.0_14. If you change your Java then make sure you change
the Environmental Variables JAVA_HOME, JRE_HOME, the two (or three) refer
-
ences in PATH, and the RUN_setup.bat "Java Home"


Sometimes pljava is broken in Postgresql, for example in version 8.3.0. You will
not know this until you try to locate Products in Adempiere (see Step 11 below).
If you have problems you will need to use the latest of version Postgresql 8.2


Make sure you follow every instruction exactly because there are many small de
-
tails that must be correct!


Java Home: in My Computer / System Properties / Advanced / Environmental
Variables create a System Variable JAVA_HOME for the location of your JDK


Web Port: probably port 80 is already used by other web server. You can use
something like 8080 or 8088 (and correspondingly 8443 for the secure port)


If you get "Error Database Port (DB Server Port = 5432)", change the 'Database
Server' from <your-computer-name> to localhost. The alternative is to use a fixed
IP address on your server or desktop and put this address in the Database Server,
or if you have a laptop then you need to install a loopback adapter


If you move the Adempiere directory (or update Adempiere) after already exe
-
cuting RUN_setup.bat, then you should delete the file adempiere.properties in
C:\Documents & Settings\<your-user-name>


If you did not include in your path C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin or the
separate drive and root location you specified, then you will need to replace the
psql command with:

D:\PostgreSQL\8.2\bin\psql

1.6 RUN_ImportAdempiere.sh
This routine is for importing ADempiere application metadata under Linux OS or Unix

What is .sh?


SH is short for SHELL. So
.sh
is a shell program. In
windows
it is usually
.bat
or
batch
program.


Both
.sh
and
.bat
are files that has typed comands in them to be executed
in the computer where they are run.
The Metadata defines the application sturcture such as menu, windows, tables and col
-
umns structure. Later you will understand more about this. For now below is a better
way to execute the ImportAdempiere command.
IMPORTING PG DUMP


Go to pgAdminIII


Connect to the server


Go to Adempiere database and drop cascade sqlj schema


Now you can import your database


Open a terminal and type in
su - postgres
psql -d adempiere </home/user/Adempiere/data/Adempiere_pg.dmp

1.7 RUN_ImportAdempiere.bat
STEP 1 - PREPARE DATABASE


Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd


Navigate to C:\Adempiere\data


Run each of the following commands by selecting the text and then pasting into
the shell using Right Click / Paste:
Notes:


You may need to review the file dump_errors.log to ensure no errors occur dur

ing import


To quickly check whether pljava is working issue the following command in
pgAdmin III query window against your adempiere database: select * from
rv_openitem
STEP 3 - IMPORTING METADATA
Import the Adempiere data. If you installed a Desktop Shortcut as suggested while you
were waiting for PostgreSQL to install, then you can just click the Desktop icon
RUN_ImportAdempiere.
Otherwise:


Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd


Navigate to D:\Adempiere\utils


Type ‘RUN_ImportAdempiere.bat’
psql -U adempiere -d adempiere -c "drop schema sqlj cascade"
psql -U adempiere -d adempiere -f Adempiere_pg.dmp >> dump_errors.log

Start the Adempiere Java Client
:
If you installed a Desktop Shortcut as suggested while you were waiting for
PostgreSQL to install, then you can just click the Desktop icon RUN_Adempiere
Otherwise:


Open a DOS shell with Start Button / Run / Open: cmd


Navigate to C:\Adempiere\


Type RUN_Adempiere.bat
Continuing ...


On the first Login Screen labelled Connection, the Server will probably be
a pink line. Click the pink line so the Adempiere Connection window
opens


Enter <your-computer-name> for the Application Host. Click Test Applica

-
base parameters.\


Click Test Database, which should result in a green tick (Vista Users may
need to sort out security as in the Note below)


Select the green tick to close the Adempiere Connection window.
Note for Vista users: If when you Test Application Server you get a green tick but
a red cross for Test Database you have a problem with PostgreSQL security on
your computer. As a safety feature PostgreSQL will only let you access it if you
are NOT an administrator, which helps to stop any hackers in the real world.


Solution-> Make a new user on your computer. Name it "postgres" and
make sure its a standard user, NOT ADMIN. Now run the Setup.bat (same
settings should still be there). Click save. Then run the RUN_Server2.bat
and then RUN_Adempiere.bat. Do the test now and it should work. Also,
for Test Application server use your computer name (ie Gregs_PC) but for
the Database use localhost

Summary
1.
We need to install 3 important softwares for ADempiere to run;
2.
We can install either on Windows with the easy Windows Installer or more manual
methods in Linux platform;
3.
Java is a common pre-requisite software to be present in the system first before in
-
stalling the datbase and ERP application.;
4.
For database we can use either the proprietary Oracle or the free PostgreSQL;
5.
After intallation of the 3 softwares, we import the starting database into the engine;
6.
Then ADempiere ERP can be operated;
7.
We use the application server to run ADempiere in a web environment. It also con
-
trols the accoints posting to be centralised and consistent;
Did You Know That?
ADempiere can also run on the IBM DB2 database? It is ported over by a student team
led by Professor Stuart Nettleton at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia in
cooperation with the IBM Innovation Centre. The team also port the system to run on
IBM’s application server which is WebSphere.

Introduction
In this chapter we try to explain the whole menu tree structure and its underlying
common design. Each menu item has a function to do and that is facilitated alot by
what is called the
Application Dictionary
. It determines the menu tree, window tabs,
table’s columns, and embedded functions as well as properties or rules or scope of its
behaviour. This section serves as a full reference guide to each menu item so that the
student can come back to this again and again when needing to know what is behind
each menu in a fast manner.
Main Reference
Much of the ADempiere menu tree reference and its item information provided here are
derived from the community project’s resource wiki which can be accessed online at
http://www.adempiere.com/wiki
.

35
The reference indexes of the ADempiere menu tree shall be laid out in the following
pages. They are based on ADempiere 3.4.0’s menu which is the most stable to date. As
an aggregated value you will find:

in second column the program type: Workbench, WorkFlow, Process, Report, Task,
Window, Form, Menu.

in third column the name of associated tables, or the name of reports and/or proc
-
esses inside that option.
This information is already a good technical help, i.e. if you want to know which win
-
dow is used to maintain a table, you can find that table on this page and it will show
you which is the corresponding maintenance window. Same if you want to find which
window executes a process, you find it and it will show the window/process/report.
Prior to that I have made some illustration with info-boxes to try to help you visualise
which is which. It will take some time for you to absorb the facts. Just take it easy. ERP
is highly complex, and the menu items seems to make up of quite alot of things. How
-
ever many items are not necessarily used or at least not most of the time.

2.1 Concept of Functional Structure
Below is a snapshot of the System Admin Menu Tree. It is seen when you login with a
role as SystemAdmin. Here we will just preview at the first upper part of the tree.
I will
explain the various icons on the tree structure
.
I will also explore each item
to explain
what are
the details behind or within them
. More details about them on the next pages.

This is the standard or common window format or user interface in the
ADempiere ERP System. Such a window will have at least one tab and up
to as many tabs as defined by the user. Standard windows have standard
CRUD functions (create, read, update, delete of records). This is the beauty
of the ERP System in that we need not define the look and feel of each win
-
dow as it is done by the Application Dictionary. The developer or user only need to de
-
fine the Window sub elements such as the number of tabs, and fields in each tab table.
The large green box on the right contains more information about each
menu item. Information are labeled by the following brown boxes.
Each standard window’s tab will be assigned to a defined table and col
-
umn in the system. That table contains actual data and is part of the data
-
base. You use the name stated to look for it in the Oracle or Postgres DB.
There may be attached code in a certain field of the defined table. Or it can
be a procedure or embedded in a processing button in the tab field. Such a
procedure will be executed when launched or pressed if its a button.
A
Workflow
is an index to other items arranged in a flow diagram. This is a
workflow because it is shaped differently. How an item is defined as a
window or workflow or otherwise is set in the
Menu
of System Admin.
Sometimes standard windows cannot fulfill properly a need of the func
-
tion or user-defined ones such as a Point Of Sales interface. A developer
will then create a customised panel based on the Java language and attach
it to this menu item. Such a customised window is called a ‘
Form’
as op
-
posed to a window.
Another type of standard function window is what is called a Report &
Process type. It handles specific process or launch reports as defined.
Now the next page will go through this concept again with some of the la
-
belled examples so that you can try to visualise all this more readily.

2.2 Concept of Application Dictionary
Here I shall explain further in general so as to quickly grasp the big picture without getting lost
in too much details. Later in the course we would get deeper. You can see the first menu item

System
’ which is said to be a
Window
as it has that
double window graphics
and a table defined
within it as stated in the green box. If it is double-clicked on, it will open into a window with a
single tab. We know its a single tab because it has only one table assigned for it. That tab’s single
table is ‘
AD_System
’. How we know that shall be explained a bit later.
Notice that at the bottom right is a button with the words “
Validate Support
”. That shows an
attached java code or procedure and this is shown in the greenbox too within brackets:
(
org.compiere.process.SystemValidate).
Again such matters are explained in due time later.
Let us look for a window that has
many tabs. There is a ‘
System
Translation Check
’ window.
Note that in the greenbox it has
many Tab-Tables:
Asia e-University Master in Open Source ERP
Copyr i ght ( C) 2009 Redhuan D. Oon, ADempi er e Communi t y ERP Appl i c at i on Set up and Oper at i on
39
AD_Language (org.compiere.install.LanguageMaintenance)
+AD_Element_Trl +AD_Message_Trl +AD_Window_Trl +AD_Tab_Trl
+AD_Field_Trl +AD_FieldGroup_Trl +AD_Process_Trl +AD_Form_Trl
+AD_Task_Trl +AD_Workflow_Trl +AD_WF_Node_Trl +AD_Menu_Trl
+AD_Ref_List_Trl
Now let’s go to another item which is ‘
Translation Import/Export
’ is stated as a customised
window because it has no defined tab table. Thus its java code that will open up is defined in

org.compiere.install.TranslationDialog
’. As you can see here, its is a uniquely defined win
-
dow panel and is not the standard form
as in the previous two windows. Such a
window is called
a ‘
Form
’. It is deter
-
mined purely by the Java code that is
called which is
TranslationDialog
.
Now we have other type of items such
as Report & Process and Printouts.
However we won’t go into them as they
are along the same concept we are try
-
ing to explain here. For now just under
-
stand this little bits and see if it makes
sense.
Asia e-University Master in Open Source ERP
Copyr i ght ( C) 2009 Redhuan D. Oon, ADempi er e Communi t y ERP Appl i c at i on Set up and Oper at i on
40
Ok, how do we know how many tabs does each window has and what table is within each tab in
the menu? We know by going into the Application Dictionary or start with the
Window Tab and
Column
item in the menu. Remember this menu I am talking about is the SystemAdmin menu.
You log into it by choosing the SystemAdmin role. From the
Tab
menu we see how many tabs
each window has.
Each tab is stated the name of the Table & Field object it is relying on. Now you know where we
got this green box info from:
If there is more than one +
such as ++ it means that the
Tab is a
child of the previous
Tab. A child tab is one that
has records within the same
parent key such as for a
Sales Order
, its child tab will contain the Sales Order’s
Orderlines
.
Another term for this is
Master-Detail
.
Thus, you can say that the way the windows are defined with the tabs or not, with how many
tabs, and its associated tables and then its associated processes within each table as what the Ap
-
plication Dictionary is all about. Taking one step back, all the items are placed in the Menu by
another Application Dictionary control called
Menu
.
AD_Language (org.compiere.install.LanguageMaintenance)
+AD_Element_Trl +AD_Message_Trl +AD_Window_Trl +AD_Tab_Trl
+AD_Field_Trl +AD_FieldGroup_Trl +AD_Process_Trl +AD_Form_Trl

Now that we have seen abit how the whole application structure is defined, we are
lucky that it has all been pre-defined nicely for us. What is left for us now is to just go
through each defined item on the menu tree. We will now list both the SystemAdmin
and the Client menus which has the ERP functional flows. System Admin is more for
defining the Application. Don’t worry if you cannot differentiate which is which. Just
remember that System Admin is for Application Dictionary or ERP configuration work
and Client Admin is for real ERP business. And it is all laid out for us when we log into
our own role in the system. (The following menu tree functional reference is mainly the
work of Carlos Ruiz of Colombia. There are also many other community members that
have assisted and shall assist as the wiki is dynamic and constantly receive contribu
-
tions everyday).
Did You Know That?

The ADempiere Application Dictionary is the brainchild of its parent project Compiere? Its
owner Jorg Janke described the AD, as it is called in short, as metadata about the ERP that can
adapt to the ‘everything changes’ concept of real life busineses.

The software coding of an ERP is just 10% of the effort? 90% is about knowing the subject
matter, knowing what goes where and how.

42
2.3 Standard CRUD
As stated earlier, the Application Dictionary sort of resolves the CRUD (Create, Read,
Update, Delete controls) of the application without the user or implementor worrying
about programming that part at all. This means that the user just need to concern about
the model of the ERP System. S/he go straight to defining the table and field structure
and its relationship with each other and its validation rules without thinking about
touching sourcecode which s/he is most likely not that technical. This means you can
do fast prototyping and extensions to the model or data model. You can also make
changes after that in like convenient fashion.
Below here shall be shown the parts of the system that is standard and granted wheve
-
ner you define a new extension to the model.
It is the top menu panel that always appear in every window. This is already preset in
the ADempiere software. So you need not think about how to get it out on every new
window anymore. It has pull down menus from FILE to HELP options. Then it has a
row of graphical icons that does a specific task when clicked on. We shall go through
some of them so that you can learn of thier common controls which are available in
every window that you shall encounter from now on.

Earlier I have shown you that the window tabs are controlled by
the AD under the Window, Tab and Field window. As you can see
on the left, the tabs will appear according to what is configured
there. Now, all windows will have the left tab structure. This is a
display that is done automatically. It is already arranged and each
tab also has a hierarchy indent. As you can see the Customer Ac
-
counting Tab lies further to the right than the Customer one which
in turn is right to the Business Partner. This left-to-right positioning
is set within the Window, Tab and Field for each Tab.
The top down layout is according to the number of tabs defined.
Each tab will now respond to your mouse click upon any of them.
At the bottom left of the panel you can see a status message “Navi
-
gate or Update Record”. This status message is according to what is
happening in the application. During processing, if there is error, it
will show according to the error status message. If it is ok, it shows
a succesfull status message.
At the bottom right of the window you can see markings such as *1/
which means that it is a new record and not yet saved. If there are a
number of records in this table, let’s say 10, and you are at the 3rd
record it will show 3/10.

Did You Know That?

A typical ERP System is often crticised as a ‘One Size Fits All’ which is too bulky for most?
Not every business can use everything that the ERP system provides.

The Application Dictionary allows 90% coding not needed for many changes that a business
need? You can just configure its window tabs and field layout.

Robert Klein from USA contributed the 2Pack facility? It allows the transfer of changes from
one instance to another instance easily.
