Subject: [Zope] Upload file to server for encoding...
Hello Zope community,
I just installed Zope-2.9.4 in a windows XP SP2 . I'm making a web site
that the visitors should:
A) Upload a file to the server
B)After the file is uploaded , I have write a python program to encode the
C)When the encoding is finish, user must download the file back to his
I'm very new to Zope and I choose it because I thought it should have an
easy and good communication with python. Since I have terminated the
python program that does what I want, I have no idea how to accomplish the
A -> I know I will need external access to the file system, is there a
product that can help me in that ?
LocalFS and ExtFile are a couple of options.
B -> my program works as I want like a python program , it will need any
modification so I can use it in Zope ?
Look into External Methods
C -> I think I will need also some kind of progress indicator so the user
can know when the encoding is done (some time takes more than a minute)
This may help:
. Any ideas how the user will download back the file? should the download
begin automatically after the encoding ?
If your external method commits the transaction, a new zope object will be
created. You could then do a response.redirect that causes the user's
browser to access the new object.
