How to run Odoo ORM methods in the python console?

I would like to use ORM methods such as

browse
or
search
in the python console.

$pwd
/opt/odoo/

$python
>>> import openerp
>>> product_obj = pool.get('product.product)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'pool' is not defined


How could I achieve that?

Answer

In version 9 you can start an odoo shell with odoo.py shell -d <database>, thanks to this commit

In version 8 the functionality is not builtin but you can use this script, this module, or OERPLib
