To me that smells like skinning; it's the same data, but you provide a JSON-RPC skin, an XML-RPC skin, etc. > I laid out to them the reasons > why doing this in Z3 would be much easier, stable, and supported than Z2 > and they seem fairly convinced.

I'll mention that there's the option of doing it in Z2 / Five. That is, keep using ZSQLMethods as provided by Zope 2, but do presentation via zope3-style views and skins. We're doing this and it works nicely. The disadvantage is that I find myself having to mentally juggle idioms and techniques from both zope 2 and zope 3 and it feels like a lot to swallow. -- Paul Winkler http://www.slinkp.com _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
