Is there any XML-RPC API on v7 ?

On v6 the xml-rpc link was localhost:8069/xmlrpc

What about using xml-rpc on v7 ?

I've found this doc.openerp.com/trunk/developers/web/rpc/ but there is no link to connect using php for example to the openerp server and insert data.

Even if it is no longer mentioned in the documentation of version 7.0, the XML/RPC API is still there.

You can rely on the 6.1 documentation, it will work with version 7.0

PHP example

NetworkError: 404 NOT FOUND myopenerp:8069/xmlrpc

@Mihalache Ciprian: Are you trying to connect to the OpenERP SAAS? In such way, the access to XML/RPC is closed.

The documentation I linked is correct regarding the connection to XML/RPC.

As far as I know XMLRP is disabled on SAAS

Answer is correct. That part of the documentation needs some love: the wizard endpoint doesn't exist anymore, additional endpoints are provided (exposing the database name in the URI), NET-RPC is deprecated, ...

using Firebug openerp web is using myopenerp:8069/web/dataset/callkw or myopenerp:8069/web/dataset/searchread and so on for every portion displaid. So there must by a way co connect from outside.

The xml-rpc api documentation for v7 is available here: http://doc.openerp.com/trunk/developers/server/api_models/

Are you sure of your link?

Although there is a straightforward mapping between the ORM API and the RPC API, your link doesn't contain anything about RPC endpoints.
