1. Is Zope3 already in use in productive environments? Where are they
Sure, a lot of people on the zope3-users list are using Zope 3 in
production. In particular, many Zope solution providers like Zope Corp,
gocept, Infrae, Lovely Systems, etc. are using Zope 3 in production with
several projects and have open-source'd a lot of their code (mostly at
svn.zope.org). Canonical is using Zope 3 for Launchpad
(https://launchpad.net). Schooltool is written in Zope 3 as well
Now, where should we start with it in Zope3 to connect it to an RDBMS?
Using an object-relational mapper such as SQLObject or SQLAlchemy. Then
you either write the bridging code from Zope to those yourself (hook the
two transaction systems together, etc.), or you use one of the
already-existing bridging solutions, sqlos
(http://codespeak.net/z3/sqlos/) or z3c.zalchemy
3.2 sqlos - SQLObject Support package (http://codespeak.net/z3/sqlos/):
Is it stable? Has someone experiences with it?
Stephan Richter says: "On the other hand, not many people use sqlos, so
it might not be as supported as you wish it would be." Is that still
I know of a larger project that uses sqlos in production
(http://www.enfoldsystems.com/Products/Open/SIP). I know that there are
people using and maintaining sqlos, but I can't say to which degree.
Best is you ask specific questions on the sqlos mailinglist
I should note that SQLAlchemy seems to become the more popular ORM in
the Python world these days. Consequently it seems to be the more
popular one among Zope 3 developers as well.
