>Subject: [Zope] How to start developing in zope
>Hi, I have read through(and tried out) the tutorials and Guides at Zope.org,
>and now eager to port my company's website over to Zope. (The website was
>originally programmed in PHP)
>In my original design, I used OOP mainly. I defined each section(e.g. News,
>Events, Products) as a class by itself, inheriting from a "main" superclass.
>Each class would contain their own set of attributes(such as font-color,
>title) and methods(e.g. display news headline, or display events schedule).
>Common attributes & method that are widely used are placed(shared) in the
>"main" class(e.g. talking to MySQL database).
>So, if there's any changes or updates, inheritance will propagate the
>changes to the rest of the subclasses. (As usual, management will require
>extra features such as personalised page, membership or web-based email to
>be added in future. Hopefully, this kind of structure would make adding new
>features a breeze.)
>I believe Zope is based on a similar way (and much more powerful). I was
>wondering how shld i start something like this in Zope - i read abt
>ZClasses(where you can define your own Folders), Products(for defining yr
>business logic) and DTML(for dynamic data display). Your opinions will be
>much appreciated.

also, use properties which can be used as global variables...
by the way, zclasses are a very good way using object-oriented tasks....
