Project Bitrock Installers - Technical Documentation

Overview

This article will explain how to create installers of Openbravo POS for different platforms using Bitrock.


Technical design

Bitrock

At the beginning Bitrock must be installed in the system. To do that download the latest version of Bitrock and install it.


Creating an installer

As the result of using Bitrock similar to Developer Manual an xml file was created:

<project>

    <fullName>Openbravo POS</fullName>
    <version>2.30</version>
