Considering you're likely the one that will be implementing it, I'd say so as you know Zope very well. But they're probably thinking "strategically" (which IMO is a mistake ;-). > Don't get me wrong, I have been using Zope for almost 2 years now, I love > it. > The problem is that I don't do any Java development since then so I miss > knowledge about Java evolutions in terms of Web Management Framework and CMS > systems. I don't know much about Struts either, sorry. I have never actually implemented a CMS using Java so I may be the wrong person to speak up. I did give a minor look-see to Cocoon lately and was distinctly unimpressed because it doesn't do some things that you just take for granted in Zope (declarative security being the big one). - C _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
