Well, Zope speaks about :
But what is Z Framework exactly? It glues everything together, but ...?
???? It describes how an object is rendered? Zope speaks about XML, HTML,

mm, it was inside the Zip-file I sended yesterday. But at the moment I
think something already has to change.... I'm reading about Z ORB and Z
Publisher... It seems that the Z ORB is inside the Z Publisher.... but that
doesn't make sence (at least I think this).
I thought Z Publisher was made to do the following :
1. A layer between Zope and the 'other side'
2. with layer, I mean : pcgi, cgi, .... (although I don't know these
protocols really exactly)
3. So, if a certain 'other side' e.g. Apache only works with a cgi or
whatever. You could write this cgi and everything should work.
--> thus Z Publisher works like a translator.
--> If you want to write a Z Publisher layer, you need to know what you
get from Zope and from the 'other side'. The ZPublisher makes a translation.
4. If ORB is inside the Z Publisher, this means that you have to rewrite
ORB too.... and is ORB not always the same? i.e. translation of an URL to
Please, can somebody explain this?
