在 OpenERP 安装的时候, 创建和填充数据库是必须的两个步骤:
创建 SQL 表
Into OpenERP, all the logic of the application is stored in the database. We find for example:
the object default values,
the form description of the interface client,
the relations between the menu and the client buttons, ...
There must be a mechanism to describe, modify and reload the different data. These data are represented into a set of XML files that can possibly be loaded during start of the program in order to fill in the tables.
