Zope: Web Application Development and Content Management will change the way you develop web sites by teaching you the key concepts behind Zope programming. Few coding paradigms have improved developer productivity like Object Oriented programming, and no other environment brings OO to the web like Zope. Zope is not just another "server page" - based web-development language; it's a ready-made framework for web development. After giving you a solid foundation in Zope fundamentals, the authors describe the latest Zope technologies (using detailed examples and plenty of source code) such as Zope's Content Management Framework, Zope Enterprise objects, Zope Page Templates, and ZPatterns. The aim of this book is to ease you along the learning curve to master Zope and achieve greater development productivity than you thought possible. If you use Zope today, or want to start, this book will show you how to: Apply object-oriented solutions to web-development problems; Learn by studying dozens of working examples with full source code; Deliver reliable, dynamic, content-rich web applications in less time; Use drop-in Zope components to quickly add popular features; Understand and apply the latest Zope technologies such as CMF, ZEO, ZPT, and ZPatterns; Coordinate input from web programmers, topic experts, and page designers; Build a "unit-testing" framework to validate new components; Connect your new applications to data from legacy systems; Manage security risks from development through deployment; Reduce the time, effort, and cost of web site maintenance.
