I can speak about this one... The difficult part of getting Zope to work on
Java, IMHO, is not the server. Without too terribly much work, I think you
could get a servlet in front of Zope (once you've taken care of all of the
We've made some progress toward getting Zope running on Java
(http://www.phabric.org). The past few weeks, phabric has been on the back
burner at Web Elite because of unrelated paying work.
There are two main areas of work in getting Zope on top of Java: the C
modules and differences between C Python and Jython. We've made quite a bit
of progress in both of those areas, but there's still more to be done before
Zope will fire up and answer a request.
