This module provide an abstract common minimal base to add any additional external id columns to some OpenObject table, pointing to some external referential. A referential is abstract and minimal at this stage, it's only identified by: * a name * a location (possibly webservice URL, database connection URL...); the connection method will tell it... * referential credentials (user name + password)
OpenERP already has limited supported to external ids using the ir_model_data and the id fields in the loaded data such as XML or CSV. The issue is that teh current system, while very useful to deal with internal OpenERP data has some limitations: * it doesn't scale well to whole production data because everything ends up into the ir_model_data * all the system is built with a using reference id in mind. But in fact you might want SEVERAL external ids. Say you sale your products over several websites (using the new Magento multi-instance connector for instance), then you want that each product have SEVERAL external id columns. This is exactly what this module enables!
