Zope QuickStart

Welcome to Zope - a new generation of software that we call a web application platform. Like web application servers, Zope provides very high performance and a strong framework for dynamic applications.

This QuickStart is built with Zope objects -- take a look!

Zope, though, is distinguished by its integrated object database which, when combined with a revolutionary object model, provides a completely unique facility for servicing content managers and web application developers. This outline, implemented in Zope, talks about the various strengths of the Zope platform and some of the other products available for it.

Zope enables "stupid" data to become smart. Aqueduct gives smarts to relational data, Tabula gives it to desktop-based data (such as DBF files). While Aqueduct's data is external to Zope, Tabula brings its data inside. Besides speedy searches and flexible reports, Tabula adds intelligence to its data through computed fields, hierarchies and acquisition, plus all the features of DTML Scripting, especially direct querying.
