Hello, I need help with this one. Iam attempting to make a openerp module and I want to design it the best possible way obviously. I have desinged a regular class to do my calls to the web and have another entity class for the table but i dont think iam approaching this the correct way. I want to stay within the framework and use a controller that uses http.py to make a GET request and return json but iam not to sure how this class works. for now i have just a regular class making my web calls can anyone explain the http.py module to me in a bit more detail here? especially making a json get request. cheers!


Hi ,

That depends on

  1. You are writing your own clients / web client using other framework
  2. You want to stick to openERP own framework.

for option 1 , it is beyond the scope as my answer will based on option 2 , assuming you want to write based on openERP's framework ,

  1. goto https://doc.openerp.com/7.0/ for all the details , now it is updating
  2. technical memo (best summary of how to develop module)

Hope this help u to get started , welcome to the openERP community!

cheers for the advice. yes i would like to stick to the framework. its relatively hard to understand though. i think the documentation sucks tbh.
