BroadleafCommerce - 5.0.7-GA

Released on February 13, 2017

This is the 7th patch release for Broadleaf Commerce 5.0 framework.

Noteworthy Changes

Side by Side Fields in Admin

New with this release is the ability to associate fields in the admin and have them appear side-by-side. This can be achieved by adding the annotation associatedFieldName to a field. For example, by adding associatedFieldName = "weightUnitOfMeasure" to the weight field in, the weightUnitOfMeasure field will not appear along side (or side-by-side) with the weight field in the admin.

An at-a-glance view of the issues that were closed in this release:

Critical Bugs(4)

  • Retrieve Sandbox and its children in same session
  • Fixed bug where SKUs were not being correctly differentiated by all ProductOptions used in SKU generation during add to cart request validation if their ProductOptionValidationStrategyType was null
  • Fixed issue with Offer target and qualifier criteria not honoring subsequent changes on deploy.
  • Remove errant code in assetSelector.js that inadvertantly triggered a form submit

Major Bugs(2)

  • Now persisting CategoryAttributes in same manner as ProductAttributes
  • Fixed bug where DynamicEntityDao was causing a StackOverflow during an infinite recursion caused by multiple levels of @Embeddable components

Minor Bugs(8)

  • Fixed an admin issue in listGrid.js/.css causing Category names to auto hide in Firefox
  • Fixed issue where clicking on the hints icon in the admin resulted in a blank page
  • Implemented javascript fixes for radio buttons and rule builders - RuleBuilders previously did not support Text Lists. This allows for comma separated strings that can use "Contains"
  • Fixed Thymeleaf issue where the MessageResolver Order attribute was not getting honored
  • Fixed gap where new attachFacet method was not calling back to the deprecated method by default
  • Removed the bootstrapcdn reference to font-awesome.min.css
  • Added null check for sku and sku.getCurrency() in VaildateAddRequestActivity
  • Allow admin Javascript errors to show on the frontend console and backend server log


  • Added associatedField annotation to support side-by-side fields
  • ListGrid modal max-height calculation fixes
  • Add options if allowed when loading rule builder
  • Created Enums for rule operators and options
  • Add override dto classname and entity key functionality to rulebuilders
  • Created New AdminPresentation Property "canLinkToExternalEntity" for AdditionalForiegnKey fields. This is intended to be used to make an AdditionalForeignKey field be treated as a String rather than an external-link when displayed in a ListGrid (i.e., make it not a clickable link)
  • Added transaction rule identifier so that transaction related fields can be associated to a rule builder
  • Allow merge overrides on Group for collections and adorned target collections
  • Added createCatalog and createSiteCatalog repository methods
  • Allow empty @Transactional annotations on service methods to use the Broadleaf blTransactionManager
  • Added an ExceptionResolver to display a user-friendly error message instead of printing stack trace to browser
