Hi Lex, This is a little bit of a tricky question. Here is what I think is the *intent* of ZPatterns. The details of storage are to be left up to the implementor/integrator. Given that they are the only ones who really know where all the goodies are hidden (sql? zodb? etc.. ) your app

Anybody know how I can call a pythonscript from python? Currently I can call it, but I seem to have no context or security context, because it either will not let me access anything or fail with an attribute error in the context. What are the params that I NEED to pass in so that it can do its

Note that you can make a binary release use an existing python by just changing the start script to point to your chosen Python executable instead of the bundled one. That wont be quite enough on win32, not sure about other platforms. The binary release contains extensions that link

I am curious of how popular SQL Server, particularly 2000, is among Zope developers. We have recenly upgraded from SQL 7 to 2000 and noticed most of the database support for Zope centers around Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, Sybase, etc... How many people are using this ZmxODBC database adapter?

We use MS SQL 2000 quite a lot with Zope using ZODBCA and have encountered no problems. In fact for our current project we were very impressed by the speed. I havent used ZmxODBC so I can comment. For outside of Zope we use the Perl DBI in Python using pyperl to wrap around the Perl DBI to use
