Re: Feasibility for service and document exchange (EDI) between OFBiz instances

Rishi Solanki
It is more like communicating two applications (not necessarily two tenants
of same OFBiz instance). Should exchange the data using EDI or any other
way (xml, json exchange etc).

Answer is yes it is possible and can be done in the same fashion any other
Java based application does. Just need to make sure if something already in
OFBiz then use it instead of implementing the feature from scratch.

Creating a fixed asset on some trigger is not OOTB available, but with some
custom code it is also achievable. The exact requirement would help us to
better answer your questions.
