until version 6, it was sqlalchemy and now?

Can someone explain why this question is downvoted? Do we need to post software development questions to another forum?

It also seems a legitimate question to me. I have voted it up from -1 to zero. Maybe the inexpert English is the problem. So, what object relational mapping (ORM) is used in V7? Is it still SqlAlchemy?

SQLAlchemy has never been the ORM used by OpenERP.

OpenERP has its own homemade ORM since the beginning of the project. It is still used in V7.0.

i think Django .?

OpenERP uses its own framework: OpenObject


For documentation on it:
