At work, we are seriously considering using Zope. For the Web front-end, we are already sold. However, for our use, we will heavily rely on its WebDAV services. We'll need to do some special tricks, so that legacy systems and Zope interoperate nicely.
As a test case, I wanted to see what it takes to create a special product, that appears as a directory in webdav, offering some dummy objects. I want to do this programmatically, not using ZClasses, nor using the Zope management interface. For my test case, I really just want to (ab)use Zope's WebDAV server functionality. Using the "A minimal product HOWTO", and inheriting from webdav.Collection a webdav directory appeared quickly. However, I am a bit stuck at figuring out how to get some dummy objects in there. Modifying the "self._objects" doesn't seem to help, and any documentation on the ObjectManager, and how it relates to FTPList/WebDAV is rather sparse. What I have so far is appended below.
