Manages the modules currently installed.



This tab manages the installed modules in the application.



Lists all the modules that are form part of the dependencies for the module.



For packages and templates the list of included modules is the list of the modules that form part of the package.


DB Prefix

DB Prefixes of the module


Data 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



Modules can merge other ones. This table contains information about the merges. A module should be merged in a new major version and once it is merged it should be kept in all future versions. When there is a module merged, multiple DBPrefixes are allowed to maintain the one originally defined by the module as well as all the ones defined in the merged modules.


Naming Exceptions

The database objects that do not follow the modularity naming rules but are within the module are defined as Exceptions. This is particularly useful to facilitate the migration of all instances to modules. When an object is added to this tab, it will be exported its module instead of to core.



Module information can be translated to different languages


Full list of Module window fields and their descriptions is available in the Module Screen Reference.
