I suggest you re-read the zope database chapter, then look at some of the code examples in zopelabs. You should also look at the Znolk SQL Wizard from BlueDynamics.
One case where you would use an external method (python) would be inserting blob data such as an image. Generally, you don't need to write python for accessing text data.

Thanks for your answer. I'm relieved to know that the ZPT-ZSQL
will suffice for database accesses. As a Zope neophyte, though, I stilldatabase
need an example or tutorial showing me how to get data from page to
via ZPTs and ZSQL objects. Can you point me to such a reference?
Yes, the Zope book is the place to look.
You create a ZSQL method with the SQL code
You then call this method through your ZPT or better in the case of posting from page to database a PythonScript which in turn calls the ZSQL method and passes the parameters.

possible to do this by a direct ZPT-to-ZSQL method call? - i.e. that it can
ONLY be done via a Python script?
I've been trying to figure out a way to do it directly, because it seemed that if possible that would be the simplest way. But if it's not possible, then I can stop wasting my time on that path and start learning to do it with Python.
