This book describes Zope's services to the developer from a
hands on, example-oriented standpoint. This book is not a complete
reference to the Zope API, but rather a practical guide to applying
Zope's services to develop and deploy your own web applications.
This book covers the following topics:
*Components and Interfaces* -- Zope is moving toward a
component-centric development model. This chapter describes the
new component model in Zope and how Zope components are described
*Object Publishing* -- Developing applications for Zope involves
more than just creating a component, that component must be
*publishable* on the web. This chapter describes publication, and
how your components need to be designed to be published.
*Zope Products* -- New Zope components are distributed and installed
in packages called "Products". This chapter explains Products in
*Persistent Components* -- Zope provides a built-in, transparent
Python object database called ZODB. This chapter describes how to
create persistent components, and how they work in conjunction
with the ZODB.
*Acquisition* -- Zope relies heavily on a dynamic technique called
acquisition. This chapter explores acquisition thoroughly.
*Security* -- When your component is used by many different people
through the web, security becomes a big concern. This chapter
describes Zope's security API and how you can use it to make
security assertions about your object.
*Debugging and Testing* -- Zope has built in debugging and testing
support. This chapter describes these facilities and how you can
debug and test your components.

Are ZClasses to be deprecated as a development tool?
It seems to be no longer included as a development option.
