External database in my module

on 3/6/13, 2:27 PM 564 views


I develop a module to my company. We need to access data in an external database (postgres). But I don't know how to do it. We want to fetch data, and to insert data into this database.

May you give me a way to do it ?

Thank you.

If the other db is an openerp db, you can use xmlrpc protocol to search, read,write and create data. If the db is a normal postgres db you can import in your module the relative python module and use it.
