Odoo is built by python classes, Warehouse module creates new classes 
and other modules in Odoo gives you new other classes. With all classes 
you got an XMLRPC-API and some JSON/Rest-methods, a lot of views, 
reports and sometimes workflow definitions with triggers for methods in 
the class. With the XMLRPC-API you can call any method and read all 
instances of a class from outside Odoo. The interaction between modules 
and classes are implemented in each module/class. Sometimes there are 
glue-modules that extend classes from other modules when you install a 
new module, for instance you can use the sale-module without warehouse. 
When (or if) you install warehouse-modules you will extend 
product-classes and other that is relevant for warehouse but not born in 
this module. There are inheritance both in classes and views/reports.
