I want to inherit the form view of product_temlpate in a new view "centre_view" 

here is my.py file:

class centre(osv.osv):

_name = 'cvt.centre'

_description = '_Centre'

_inherit= 'product_template'

_columns = {

'name':fields.char('Nom_Centre', required=True)


and the xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>



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

<field name="name">centre.form</field>

<field name="model">cvt.centre</field>

<field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_template_form_view"/>

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

<form string="Product">

<field name='name'/>




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

<field name="name">centre.tree</field>

<field name="model">cvt.centre</field>

<field name="inherit_id" ref="product.product_template_tree_view"/>

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

<tree string="Product">

<field name='name'/>




<record model="ir.actions.act_window.view" id="action_centre_form">

<field name="sequence" eval="1"/>

<field name="view_mode">form</field>

<field name="view_id" ref="view_centre_form"/>

<field name="act_window_id" ref="action_my_model_template"/>


<record model="ir.actions.act_window.view" id="action_centre_tree">

<field name="sequence" eval="1"/>

<field name="view_mode">tree</field>

<field name="view_id" ref="view_centre_tree"/>

<field name="act_window_id" ref="action_centre"/>
