"Digital Creations announced today increased interoperability between its Open Source Zope application server and Microsoft platforms using open standards. An early 2000 Zope release will include support for two protocols heavily supported by Microsoft, the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol."

"Zope is the leading Open Source application server for content management and portals," says Paul Everitt, CEO of Digital Creations. "Our customers and community gain tremendously when Zope and Microsoft applications communicate in a rich way. We are pleased to aggressively support these open standards that Microsoft has taken the lead on."

"To build integrated e-commerce applications you must be able to connect different Web services together easily and quickly using Internet standards such as HTTP and XML," stated John Montgomery, product manager in Microsoft's Developer Division. "Digital Creations' support for SOAP and WebDAV in Zope will help organizations integrate a truly diverse set of applications and services."
