I have taken a look at OFBiz. From what I understand in OFBiz you create
your entities, views, db table mappings, and business logic in Java, and

This approach is much different. It defines those things in the database
and interprets them at runtime from the database. i.e. there is no such
thing as 'Accounts.xml' or '', etc...

I don't see OFBiz benefiting from this at all. Unless they're willing to
do a huge re-write. On the other hand, what this project could use from
the OFBiz project, is the already developed logic they have. It is much
more mature in terms of the already created business functionality.
