    A framework which allows people to construct a web application is
    often called a *web application server*, or sometimes just an
    *application server*.  Zope is a web application server, as are
    competing products like "BEA WebLogic":http://www.bea.com/ ,
    "Macromedia ColdFusion":http://www.macromedia.com/ and (to some
    extent) "Vignette StoryServer":http://www.vignette.com/.  A web
    application server typically allows a developer to create a web
    application using some common computer programming language.  But
    it also provides services beyond the basic capabilities of the
    language such as templating, a common security model, data
    persistence, sessions, and other features that people find useful
    when constructing a typical web application.
