The Barnes & Noble Review
The Book of Zope is as authoritative a guide to Zope as you'll find. Built on the authors' well-regarded Zope eBooks, it systematically covers all aspects of Zope development -- both Zope as a web application server and Zope as a content management server.

You'll start from scratch -- walking through Zope installation on both Windows and Linux servers, getting comfortable with the Zope user interface, mastering basic administration tasks such as setting up user accounts, and utilizing Zope's built-in security features, roles, and permissions. The authors introduce DTML -- Zope's language for dynamically programming web pages -- and present a quick reference to every DTML tag.

Next, the authors present ZClasses, which enable you to create custom Zope objects that encapsulate the data, interface, and behavior of key program elements with minimal programming -- thereby allowing even non-programmers to deliver significant application functionality.

You'll learn how to use the ZCatalog for fast, powerful indexing and searching of Zope databases; then master both MySQL database integration and Zope programming with Python. Last but not least, you'll be pleased to find a full chapter on debugging -- including errors related to server start-up, DTML, Python, and Zope itself. (Bill Camarda)
