Akhmad D. Sembiring has been implementing Odoo since it was OpenERP 6.1. He is actively contributing to the Odoo community by providing 100+ add-ons published on Odoo Apps Marketplace, writing 50+ E-books on Google Play Books on implementing techniques, development, and optimal configuration and infrastructure setup, as well as publishing 40+ online classes on Udemy and Youtube Channel. Recently, he was involved in developing some crypto projects that need integration to Odoo as the backend system.
Thanks to its advanced framework, we can easily enhance Odoo's functionalities to adopt complex business logic by developing new add-ons.
More complex business logic requires more complex data structures and tables. On the one hand, manually writing Python and XML code will make developers struggle to follow add-on development standards and catch the client's requirements because handling Python and XML code errors can take hours to solve. On the other hand, clients need their requirements to be as fast as possible.
So far, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram is the best way to depict and describe the business logic for end users and developers. It would be nice if we could convert those diagrams directly into a running Odoo add-on. Fortunately, it is possible now.
To do so, one of the available tools is StarUML. It has an extensible feature for us to generate codes from its class diagram, including Python code and its related XML view files, the manifest file, and other required files, that assembles a complete and ready-to-deploy Odoo add-on.
This talk discusses utilizing the StarUML extension to generate files that the Odoo add-ons standard needs. Each class entity is converted into a Python class file, XML view for tree, form, action, menu, kanban, and reports, and the security access files. All those files are generated in a single folder along with a manifest file for a valid Odoo add-on. An inherited add-on can also be generated for us to write and implement the custom business logic.
Thanks to our solution, business analysts can focus on how the UML diagram matches the business process, preparing the classes and flow. Then execute the generate feature. Developers can then easily implement the custom logic for action buttons, inherit the ORM, create, update, delete, and don't bother with error-prone tasks for manually creating the class, XML, menu, report files, etc.
This talk will be very insightful if you are an Odoo developer or implementor who wants to develop add-ons faster.
We will discuss not just theories but practical sample codes.
