Do you mean that nobody actually writes an application without using CMF or Plone/CPS/Silva? If that is the case then that explains my slow rate of development. But I wonder if I want to continue with zope. It looks like a cool application server, I have written an application (slowly) and I was hoping that I could see better examples of how to write a complete application. There is very little on sourceforge. I have read the "zope bible" cover to cover and I have read most of the zope book, but I admit that I haven't read the developer book. ( hate reading large amounts of text online). I guess that is my future.
As for a specific question. Here goes: Could I please get a Zope application written by someone who has > 2 years of Zope experience that uses several dtml or zpt pages, that 1. registers a user 2. collects data from a user and saves that data to the zodb 3. manages the accumulation of data in the zodb? If it was developed outside the zmi (I hope) can you also send me the associated test framework? Thanks!
