ERP 2.50:User Manual/Application Dictionary/zh

Contents

IconAutoForm.png 模块

使用模块窗口创建和注册一个新的扩展模块。模块是一个内容容器,它可让您对扩展,应用程序元数据字典,数据模型元素,软件资源和参考数据进行分组。

通过您定义好的扩展模块,便可以在不同的环境中提取它们,封装和重用他们。

所有Openbravo ERP系统实例的扩展和配置都应该定义在一个模块中。

Openbravo ERP 支持三种类型的扩展模块:

Fields

ClientIn the case of modules, the client is always System
OrganizationIn the case of modules, the organization is always the super-organization, *
Active:There are two methods of making modules unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reporting. There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records:

(1) The system requires the record for auditing purposes. (2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are existing invoices for it. By de-activating the Business Partner you prevent it from being used in future transactions.||

NameThe name of the module. It is up to 60 characters in length.
VersionModules must have a version, which is then used for dependency tracking. Version numbers must follow the pattern XXX.YYY.ZZZ, where XXX, YYY and ZZZ are integers. For example a valid version number is 1.0.4.
The last digit group, ZZZ, is ignored for dependency purposes. For example, if you have module A at version 1.0.0 that depends on module B at version 1.1.0, the publication of version 1.1.1 of B will not break the dependency while version 1.2.0 of B will not be compatible with version 1.0.0 of A.
Java PackageThe name of the Java package, using Java naming standards. This package will contain all the Java artifacts included in the module.
TypeSpecify whether the module is a module, a pack or a template
In DevelopmentSelect the checkbox if the module is currently in development. Artifacts of a module that is not in development cannot be modified. Conversely, only modules in development can be extracted and packaged.
DefaultSelect the checkbox to make this module the default.
DescriptionA brief description of the module
HelpType a more extensive description of the module, explaining its functionality.
Translation requiredSelect the checkbox if the module contains user interface elements that need translating into other languages.
Is Translation ModuleSelect the checkbox if the module is a translation module that contains the language translation of another module.
Module LanguageFor modules requiring translations, select the base language of the module.
Has Reference Data Select the checkbox if the module includes reference data. When installing a module with reference data, the reference data is first applied at system level but it can then be applied in the context of a specific client or organization.


If selected, the Reference Data Description box appears in which you can type a description of the reference data.||

Has Chart of AccountsSelect the checkbox if the module includes a chart of accounts
License TypeSelect a license type for the module from the list, for example the Openbravo Public License.
License TextType or paste the license text for the chosen license
AuthorType the name of the module´s author or authors
URLIf required, type a URL for example to a web page giving more information about the module.
StatusDisplays the current installation status of the module.
Update informationUse this field to provide a change history for each version.
Register ModuleUse this button to register the module in the Openbravo Central Repository. Registration ensure the validity and uniqueness of the package name, Java package and database prefix, guaranteeing that different developers do not produce conflicting modules.

If you plan to share your module across instances, it is essential that you register your module.||

Tab23.png Include

If your module is a pack and includes other modules, use this tab to specify the details here.

Fields

ClientThe client is always System
OrganizationThe organization is always the super-organization, *
Active:A flag indicating whether this record is available for use or de-activated.

Update informationIf the module is an update, type or paste a translation of the update information.
Reference Data DescriptionIf the module includes refrence data type or paste a translation of the reference data description.

Tab23.pngData Package

The Data Package is a grouping mechanism for tables within a module. Openbravo has a Java business object for each table. The Java package of the Java business object is defined in the Data Package. For example: a module for a CRM package with the name: org.crm has packages: - org.crm.order - org.crm.customer

The corresponding tables have then the following setting: - Customer, in the org.crm.customer package, resulting in the java class: org.crm.customer.Customer - SalesOrder, in the org.crm.order package, resulting in the java class: org.crm.order.SalesOrder

Fields

ClientThe client is always System
OrganizationThe organization is always the super-organization, *
NameType the name of the data package
DescriptionType a brief description of the data package
Active:A flag indicating whether this record is available for use or de-activated.

Tab23.pngDB Prefix

Database prefixes are short (7 characters) identifiers for objects in database. The purpose of database prefixes is to avoid name collision among database objects (tables, views, PL/SQL functions, etc.) delivered by different modules. You must define at least one DB Prefix if you module includes database objects. Fields

ClientThe client is always System
OrganizationThe organization is always the super-organization, *
NameType the name of DBPrefix
