MELISSA will be a simple CRUD desktop (non-web) GUI application for PostgreSQL and implemented in Python with a database schema similar to, but not entirely compliant with the MIMOSA CRIS industry standard (www.mimosa.org).
The non-compliance with MIMOSA CRIS will concern the restructuring of the data model to transform it into a SER model(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structured-Entity-Relationship-Model) in order to allow for easy bulk-extraction and -loading of data. The goal is to stay as compatible with MIMOSA CRIS as possible.
The GUI will be based on wxPython, PyQt or PyGTK (no choice made yet - planning stage) using one of the high-level database RAD frameworks available for Python such as Dabo (www.dabodev.com), PyPaPi (www.pypapi.org), QtAlchemy (www.qtalchemy.org), Camelot (www.python-camelot.com) or Sqlkit (sqlkit.argolinux.org). The objective is to make the application run at least on Windows, MacOS X, Linux and BSD.
