What is the database used in ERP5? Please answer me. Thank you in advance. 


ERP5 uses ZODB as its main database. It is slowly transitionning to our homebrewed NEO storage, which is a distributed database following the same API and implementing the same features as ZODB.

Also, is used as a catalog of ZODB/NEO, indexing the most commons and shared properties of all ERP5 documents and their fulltext representation, in order to easily and fastly query the ZODB/NEO storage.




The ERP5 project (Smets-Solanes, Carvalho, 2002; Smets-Solanes, Carvalho, 2003) is a FOS-ERP that aims at offering an integrated management solution based on the open source Zope platform, written in the Python scripting language. This platform delivers an object database (ZODB), a workflow engine (DCWorkflow), and rapid GUI scripting based on XML. Additionally, ERP5 incorporates data synchronization among different object databases and a object-relational mapping scheme that stores indexing attributes of each object in a relational database, allowing much faster object search and retrieval, in comparison to ZODB, and also analytical processing and reporting. This project was initiated in 2001 by two French companies, Nexedi – its main developer, and Coramy – its first user, and since then is in development and use by a growing community from France, Brazil, Germany, Poland, Senegal, Japan, and India, among others. ERP5 is named after the five core business entities that define its Unified Business Model for more details visit  top  here web development agencies
