What is the number of non-isomorphic rings of order $135$?

Can anyone tell me how can I able to solve this problem and which theorem or results are helpful? Thanks for your help.

More generally, can anybody tell me how many non-isomorphic rings there are for all orders?

Do rings have multiplicative identities for you? – Chris Eagle Feb 8 '13 at 10:54
may or may not. I get a example as $Z_{135}$.but how can I find all the non isomorphic rings – priti Feb 8 '13 at 10:56
The number of (isomorphism classes) of rings with unity and $n$ elements is tabulated at but only up to $n=63$. There are $12$ for $n=27=(135)/5$, and I'd guess there'd be more for $n=135$. – Gerry Myerson Feb 8 '13 at 11:01
priti - FYI: if you find an answer to be helpful, you may "accept it": you can accept one answer per question asked.

According to the OEIS, the number of rings (up to isomorphism) with $n$ elements is a multiplicative function, so $f(135)=f(5)\cdot f(27)=2\cdot 59=118$.

can you please explain how did you find the values of $f$ – priti Feb 8 '13 at 11:08
By reading the list in the OEIS. – Chris Eagle Feb 8 '13 at 11:13
Nice - number of rings with unity is evidently not multiplicative. – Gerry Myerson Feb 8 '13 at 11:14
I've never used OEIS: the keyword "mult" is intended to flag multiplicative sequences? – rschwieb Feb 8 '13 at 14:24
Hint: The theorem to use is the Basis Theorem For Finitely Generated Abelian Groups, which will give you all possible additive groups of the ring from the prime factorization. – Barbara Osofsky Feb 9 '13 at 13:37
