There's clearly a need for some more documentation here, but I'm not sure what to write yet, or where it should go. Contrary to many of the other responses, yes, this shouldn't be difficult at all. You'll need a couple of pieces of Python code: 1. Your server implementation. It sounds like you have this already. 2. A factory object that can accept configuration data and create an instance of your server object. You then need to create a ZConfig component that provides a section type to support your server. The ZConfig documentation discusses this somewhat. The new section type will need to declare that it implements the ZServer.server abstract type; it should probably look something like this: <component> <import package="ZServer"/> <sectiontype name="myserver" implements="ZServer.server" datatype="mypackage.server.ServerFactory"> <!-- configuration data should be described here --> </sectiontype> </component> You'll need to arrange for the package containing this component is available on the Python sys.path before zope.conf is loaded; this is mostly easily done by manipulating the PYTHONPATH environment variable. Your zope.conf file can now include the following to load and use your new server: %import mypackage <myserver> # configuration settings go here </myserver> Feel free to ask questions about this; I'm usually more available to respond than I have been a couple of days. -Fred -- Fred L.
