In 2015, on version 3.1 Apache Tomcat was replaced with Jetty 9.2.3,.
In 2011, due to disagreements in the former ADempiere developer communitythey decided to use the new name iDempiere for the code path with the new OSGi architecture. So iDempiere can be seen as the next generation of ADempiere or as a fork of the ADempiere Branch GlobalQSS Adempiere361.The majority of the active developer community started to work on iDempiere.The big difference made on iDempiere 1.0 vs ADempiere was the platform technology upgrade to the OSGi framework that allows iDempiere to have plug-ins,so a lot of specific Code made on Adempiere have been updated as plug-ins in iDempiere.,Also Jboss was replaced with Apache Tomcat improving the performance and memory footprint. Further upgrades are a new automatic build system based on Eclipse Buckminster, a major ZK upgrade (from ZK3.6 to ZK6) which allowed redesign of the web GUI.
In 2006, ADempiere itself is a fork of the open source version of Compiere.
In 1999, Compiere was founded by Jorg Janke who worked previously for Oracle in Germany and the USA.
iDempiere consists of a Java server (based on a Jetty 9.2.3 container) with a ZK 7.0.3 web GUI. It has also a Swing Desktop Client. It uses the OSGi framework for modularization. It has Oracle 11G and PostgreSQL 9.4 database support. The project run on Eclipse 4.4.1 (Luna) and Equinox 3.10 ( OSGi R6 )
This is a feature of iDempiere that extends the concept of a data dictionary to an “Active Data Dictionary” that lets it manage entities, validation rules, windows, formats, and other customizations of the application without new JAVA code. So iDempiere can be seen not only as an ERP but also as a platform to build database driven applications.
The second feature of iDempiere are the plug-ins to modify or extend the ERP, CRM and SCM functionality. The wiki allows users to rate the known plug-ins in the plugin market,some types of plugins are:
iDempiere has a Workflow Engine based on WfMC standard, to manage document workflow process and BPM requirements.
iDempiere is a web software that works in Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer browsers that allow users to open related records quickly and easily via links.
Performance graphs are set from measure calculation via Application Directory.
In iDempiere is very simple to create new tables to add specific business information. Only the advanced work of information may require programming in Java

iDempiere is a project with a high activity,supported by a worldwide community of committed people organized as a decentralized bazaar. There is no single person or company ruling the project or many of the parts, much like the wiki websites, build server, trackers, forums, etc. The community includes end users, implementers and subject matter specialists.
There are active local communities in Japan, China, USA, Germany, Indonesia, Brasil, Malaysia, Colombia, India, Russia, and other countries.bWider reception comes also through speeches held in open source conferences like de:OpenRheinRuhr and on Universities.
The best ways to be connected with the community are the wiki, forums and chats like:
