<field name="arch" type="xml">

It will append or edit the content of this tag. If this tag has some attributes, it will look in the parent view for a node with matching attributes (except position).

<record model="ir.ui.view" id="view_id">

This part calls the view for the object.

The views are used to display records of an object to the user.


this part calls an window actions.An action opens a window and defines which view to show.

Thanks Vasanth for your replay.......
