I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

This is how I do it in Zato ESB using their integration with Odoo, you could take it as an example or a seudo-code but it's working ok and contains all the steps, obviously you need to adapt it because the following code is not complete:

invoice_pool = zoe.get_model('account.invoice')

voucher_pool = zoe.get_model('account.voucher')

journal_pool = zoe.get_model('account.journal')

partner_pool = zoe.get_model('res.partner')

invoice_info = invoice_pool.read([int(vals.get('id_invoice'))], ['partner_id', 'name', 'company_id', 'currency_id', 'type', 'state'])

if invoice_info:

invoice_info = invoice_info[0]

if invoice_info['state'] != 'open':

self.report_error("The invoice with code %s is not validated"% vals.get('id_invoice'))



self.report_error("Invoice not found with id %s"% vals.get('id_invoice'))


partner_info = partner_pool.read([invoice_info['partner_id'][0]], ['is_company', 'parent_id'])[0]

while not partner_info['is_company'] and partner_info['parent_id']:

partner_info = partner_pool.read([invoice_info['parent_id'][0]], ['is_company', 'parent_id'])[0]

journal_id = journal_pool.search([('code', '=', vals.get('journal_code'))])

if not journal_id:

self.report_error("There is no journal asociated with this code: %s"%(vals.get('journal_code')))


result = voucher_pool.onchange_journal([],journal_id[0], [], False, partner_info['id'], False, float(vals.get('amount_payment')), 'receipt', invoice_info['company_id'][0], context={'invoice_id': invoice_info['id']})

voucher_vals = result['value']


'type': 'receipt',

'date': vals.get('fecha'),

'amount': float(vals.get('amount_payment')),

'partner_id': partner_info['id'],

'reference': invoice_info['name'],

'company_id': invoice_info['company_id'][0],

'journal_id': journal_id[0],


line_cr_ids = voucher_vals.pop('line_cr_ids')

voucher_vals['line_cr_ids'] = [(0,0,cr) for cr in line_cr_ids]

voucher_id = voucher_pool.create(voucher_vals)

ctx = {

'payment_expected_currency': invoice_info['currency_id'][0],

'close_after_process': True,

'invoice_type': invoice_info['type'],

'invoice_id': invoice_info['id'],

'type': 'receipt',


voucher_pool.button_proforma_voucher([voucher_id], context=ctx)

voucher_ids[invoice_info['id']] = voucher_id

You just need to change it to xmlrpclib if you use it, like this search example:

uid = oerp_common.authenticate(db, 'admin', password, {})

oerp_models = xmlrpclib.ServerProxy('{}/xmlrpc/2/object'.format(url))ids = oerp_models.execute_kw(db, uid, password,'ir.module.module', 'search',[[['name', '=', module]]])s

Hope this helps

Thanks. I'll give this methodology a try.
