"Zope is an Open Source application server, specializing in content management, portals, and custom services. Zope is focused on rapid deployment of rich services to diverse audiences."
"The "soul" of Zope is focused around three sets of ideas:
"From a technology perspective, Zope is a heavily object-oriented application server, written largely in Python with some C extensions for performance. Zope's most immediate differentiator is the integrated object database, the ZODB. The ZODB is a transactional, hierarchical, multi-revision object database with a tunable cache and abstract storage. With ZEO, the ZODB and Zope become a distributed object system."
"All tiers in Zope are considered managed objects. (Note: currently much Zope code is implemented on Python modules on disk, but our vision is to begin eliminating that.) This means your presentation layer (DTML and soon XSLT), your logic layer (DTML and soon Python and Perl), and your data layer (Zope instance data) all get the same suite of content management services, such as an integrated security system, undo, searchability, workflow, etc."
