>Zope is an application server. Almost any kind of web app you can
Hmmm... maybe you've hit on something here. I think I'm having trouble coming to grips with the idea of an application server in general. I also haven't really seen anything in the Zope documentation that would clue me in.
Most of the stuff I see basically covers how to use object-oriented concepts to handle dynamic web content (you know, documents, news, etc. -- more of the cmf stuff) which I can understand.
What it boils down to is this: What does it MEAN to use an application server? How do I use Zope to serve an application? Why not just mod_python in Apache?
Personally, I don't like the whole DTML language. I'm definitely more at home using a language to generate HTML or maybe XML dynamically.
Any further enlightenment would be appreciated.
Thanks for the responses.
