Hi there,

I am in the process of learning to developp for odoo.
Todo so I am working trough daniels reis' book "odoo developpement 
essentials"

Now I wonder what defines the name of an app:

in __openerp__.py we migth define:
{'name': 'To-Do Application',
..
}

then I define a model like this:

class TodoTask(models.Model):
     _name = 'todo.task'
..

now my questions:
what is a module, what is an app ??

When is the name found in __openerp__.py used and when the one in the model?

thanks for your time
robert
