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.
|A Basic Example|
Zope and Aqueduct take great pains to maintain high transaction rates and performance. Chief among these is the persistent database logins established and maintained by Aqueduct. Multiple, persistent logins (each with their own database privileges) can be created and maintained.
Another signficant performance boost also comes from the fact that Zope (and hence Aqueduct) are long-running processes. This completely avoids the performance-bashing startup latency associated with complex CGI applications.
