Database API views

 

The xTuple Application Programmer Interface (API) is designed to make importing data directly into the database much safer and easier than it is going directly into the regular table structure. The specific target audience is users such as solution providers and customers who wish to import legacy data or integrate eCommerce solutions with xTuple Applications (including the open source PostBooks and the commercial-licensed editions) without having deep experience with xTuple business logic. Our appoach is to allow users to create, access, and update xTuple documents using a special database schema that closely mirrors the graphical user interface (GUI).
