If your are using Zope 2 and is a newbie, do yourself the favour of starting with Zope 3. If you want to work in zope 2 you should use Plone as a base, and create products with Archgen XML (AGX) There are no advantages in using plain Zope 2 anymore.I'm sorry, that's just complete BS. jens+ 1
Also +1 on the BS. Plone is a solution for lots of use-cases but it is not a solution for all-and-everything. Keep in mind that Plone is (easily spoken) a skin with with some business logic at implements CMS functionality on top of a huge pile of frameworks. Compare it to an iceberg (one seventh of the iceberg you'll see over the waterline is Plone and the rest are frameworks under the hood). Complex application scenarios often don't match with the Plone use-cases. Therefore it is better to build in such cases your own application on top of CMF instead Plone. And once again: don't sell Plone as all-in-one device to every customer - that's unprofessional. A good consultant/developers knows when to use Plone and when not to use Plone.
