Integration with other non-ODOO ERP Capabilities

    I'm evaluating ODOO's WMS for a replacement into an existing system. One thing we'd like to be able to do is to use the existing Order Management System for storing Purchase Orders and such. What is required to have ODOO WMS reference a different OMS to retrieve and act on POs? 

1) Can I create some kind of REST/SOAP API shim to sit in front of the legacy OMS so ODOO WMS can treat it as if it was the ODOO OMS?

2) Do I have to implement python classes to wrap the legacy OMS to make ODOO WMS work with it?

What is the actual mechanism by which ODOO WMS talks with other components of ODOO ERP? Can they be reasonably replaced piecemeal or are they too tightly integrated for this to be a reasonable consideration?

thanx much,
