Changed in version 7.1.

The OpenERP framework, as an HTTP server, serves a few hard-coded URLs (models, db, ...) to expose RPC endpoints. When running the web addons (which is almost always the case), it also serves URLs without them being RPC endpoints.

In older version of OpenERP, adding RPC endpoints was done by subclassing the openerp.netsvc.ExportService class. Adding WSGI handlers was done by registering them with the openerp.wsgi.register_wsgi_handler() function.

Starting with OpenERP 7.1, exposing a new arbitrary WSGI handler is done with the openerp.http.handler() decorator while adding an RPC endpoint is done with the openerp.http.rpc() decorator.
