"The other day, somebody asked me to provide a way for salespeople to track their accounts on the Web...."

"With ZODB (an object database) at its core, plus a built-in facility for creating and editing ZODB objects and properties through the Web, and for controlling access to those objects, Zope's basic infrastructure goes a long way toward solving the problem."

So I started tinkering and came up with an acceptable solution to the problem at hand. I offer it here (and in next week's column) for two reasons. First, as a Zope tutorial for those who haven't yet dipped a toe into those waters. Second, because I know that writing about this project will prompt folks to write back about other ways to solve the problem, in Zope and in other environments. So, let's get started."
