From my experience, Java development has been a lot faster when
applications have middle to high level complexity. Since Java is
inherently object-oriented, reusability is much easier to achieve then
when using Zope. Also, Java has mature development and debugging
environments and well organized API's. Zope is seriously lacking in
Zope is good for building simple interfaces but any application that
does data processing and requires session management should be left
for Java. The closest comparison to Zope that I can think of is PHP.
Again, this is just my opinion based on my own experiences.
Python is also object oriented. In python, x = 10 creates an object not
a simple type - if I recall the same is true in Java.
The comparison should first be between python and java. I've used both
and prefer python.
The next compare should be between developement platforms for each: e.g.
Zope vs some java IDE.
Lastly, I think Zope is more than capable of handling "complex
applications" using external databases. I've not run into a single
barrier doing this using Zope (other than fleeing braincells).
