[Zope] Help Needed - Case for Zope
Sun, 2 Mar 2003 13:07:42 +0400
Any Project managers out there with something to add with regard to
comparison between speed of implementation for Zove vs. other products?
Personally, I place maintainability and transitioning skills as my top
priority, and elegance of code comes last. Speed (e.g., of the server) is a
non-issue because one can always allocate better hardware for this since
it's a mere commodity now, intellectual capital is always at a premium.
And that's why I like Zope :)
But I still have to sell the concept to managers who only hear "Java" &
"JSP" from software vendors and so are most familiar with these

One way of getting Zope "run like a bow-legged
terrier on sleeping pills" (Pieters, M., pers. comm.)
is to use multi-processor Solaris without paying attention
to the threading issues (see
If you're starting from a clean sheet it's probably
best to avoid Solaris.
