In __openerp__.py file in a module, there are two fields with init.xml and update.xml. After observing various custom modules and inheritance concepts in OpenERP 7,  I came to conclusion that:
    - If inherit==name: put the model_view.xml to update.xml
    - If inherit!=name: put the model_view.xml to init.xml

Is my conclusion correct..? If any additional info give me suggestion

Hello,

The xml file should be registered in the __openerp__.py file, inside that you can find “data” (for v7)which holds all the view files(*.xml).

Thanks,

In V7 init and update fields have been remplaced by data field.
It's used for inherit and not inherit views.

Now, in V 7.0 you can put your mode_view.xml file into "data" section of __openerp__.py
