RE: fineract & community-app vs fineract-CN Services & fims-web-app


Ed,

I sent in a different email the changes I made for demo to work on Windows 10 machine. The demo works fine with local stores, if the first run creates the databases and subsequent runs use existing databases:

First run: java -Ddemoserver.provision=true -Ddemoserver.persistent=true -Dcustom.cassandra.contactPoints=127.0.0.1:9042 -Dcassandra.cluster.user=cassandra -Dcassandra.cluster.pwd=password -Dcustom.mariadb.host=localhost -Dcustom.mariadb.user=root -Dcustom.mariadb.password=mysql -jar demo-server-0.1.0-BUILD-SNAPSHOT.jar

Subsequent runs: java -Ddemoserver.persistent=true -Dcustom.cassandra.contactPoints=127.0.0.1:9042 -Dcassandra.cluster.user=cassandra -Dcassandra.cluster.pwd=password -Dcustom.mariadb.host=localhost -Dcustom.mariadb.user=root -Dcustom.mariadb.password=mysql -jar demo-server-0.1.0-BUILD-SNAPSHOT.jar

The MFI you're looking to work with - what are the products and services they support? Please share what gaps there were in the documentation so we can address those or if you create a wiki account I can give you the permissions to edit yourself.
