First, design your system.

Then write the very basics of what you need in Python first using
whatever third-party binaries you need to, leaving the methods which use
Zopish features (like ZSQL methods, ODB, etc) as stubs.  Then after
you're done, and it works, you can wrap it in a Zope Product.  There's
not much information on how to do this, I'm working on material for a
Product Developer's Guide now.

Authentication should probably be handled outside Zope in your Python
code.  Unless it's not.  :-)

Subject: [Zope] Using Zope as App Server for non http-Protocols

We want to (mis)use zope as an application server servicing a
proprietary non-http protocol 
for transmitting compressed data.

Our idea is a specially written client that connects on a proprietary
port to zope where 
a special product is listening and serving the request.

Our question:

How can I implement a product listening on a specific port and servicing
requests and sending back binary (in our case compressed) data.
But the product should of course be able to use the infrastructure of
Zope (ODB,External methods,ZSQL methods...)

Another question is how does the authentification work for such a
non-http connection.

Any hints?
Thanks in advance

Philipp Auersperg
