Getting Started with Zope3


The Z Object Publishing Framework (Zope) was the first application server written in Python, which made it possible to manage and publish objects through the web. Since 1998, the Zope framework has evolved, becoming more sophisticated and complex, but also less scalable. Developers found that the more complex an application became the less portable and manageable the code base was due to the multiple inheritance. New development paradigms were used to create a component architecture which tried to split up responsibilities. The component architecture allows the creation of reusable components which can be tested and distributed independently; functioning more like a toolbox.
