Setup Development Environment

NetBean IDE provides excellent features for rapid customization of Floreant POS. Our open source License agreement requires you release your source code and we welcome developers to enrich the product.


Open the folder where you have your source code

Now you should find a new workspace created with default code.  For example D:\Mundel\POSWorkspace\POS 

Download source code from subversion

Copy Source Code and Libraries

Copy the scr and lib folder to your workspace ( for ex : D:\Mundel\POSWorkspace\POS). You can overwrite default scr & lib folder

Update Project settings

Right click on workspace name /project name. Here we named it "POS" 

click on "Properties"

Add libraries. Click on "Libraries" link in the sidebar and add jar/Folder. 

Libraries are found in "lib" folder in your source code.

Set Entry point of code. In Floreant POS main function is com.floreantpos.main.Main. Click on "Run", change the Main Class to "com.floreantpos.main.Main". 

Compile & Test

Now you compile & run changed code from NetBean Menu ( Run -> Run Main Project). Remember to "Clean and Build Mai Project" before you do that. And also you need to start Database server to make application working.
