Good and bad news.. There is no real "product" to do this.. but it is not at
all hard to do with Zope tools..

This is a combination of a ZSQL Method (to database of you choice) and
displayed using a DTML-IN tags. No biggy.

Same thing. Create another ZSQL Method that calls the list and display it
using DTML-IN to iterate over the list. Display the data you want with the
DTML or limit it in the SQL statement.

Same deal.. same ease..

Take a look at which is 100% pure Zope with
a PostgreSQL backend that serves up almost everything (90% of what you see).
I have about 25 ZSQL Methods doing the work for the entire site with lots of
database interactivity (reading, writing, updating).

Start with the ZSQL Guide some How-Tos, the ZDP and when you get stuck send
a message to the group here.
