You have 2 subproblems: interfacing Zope with iPlanet and
interfacing Zope with Oracle 8.1.6.
1. Unfortunately, I do not know iPlanet.
You may search "zope.org" for "iPlanet" (maybe, you
find a HowTo). There is also a searchable archive
of this mailing list at NIP (to be found via
"zope.org -> Resources -> Mailing Lists").
If you are unlucky, you must explore a bit yourself.
"doc/WEBSERVERS.txt" (a file in the Zope distribution)
is a good starting point.
Although, it mainly speaks about Apache (and does not
mention iPlanet), the "pcgi" connection will work with
any webserver that supports CGI. It will work
There might be some problems with the propagation
of authentication information.
You may decide to let iPlanet do all authentication
and let Zope unprotected or you might need to
learn how to configure iPlanet to pass authentication
You may want to screen the iPlanet documentation, whether
it supports proxy mode. In this mode, iPlanet would
relay (some) requests to another web server (Zope
in your case). This would be more efficient than
2. We use Zope with Oracle 8.1.6.
We use DC's DCOracle and ZOracleDA (latest version!
it has a beta in its version number!).
It works satisfactory with the exception of LOB support.
DC is working on improvements but the project is not
externally funded, progress seems to be slow.
Some days ago, someone in the list has reported a package
that can be used to work around the LOB restrictions
(if you know the LOB type).
Search the list archive to locate the article (search
for "DCOracle and BLOB").
