[Zope] How to use Zope2 products in Zope3 ?

 Great posts! I have written an application that uses extjs (also
works with AIR) as the javascript front end and  zope 2.10 as the
backend.    I chose dtml over zpt because dtml is faster than zpt. The
extjs application scales better then either a zpt or a dtml
application because the majority of the user interface is written in
javascript code that can be cached by the webserver (and client).

Please keep us updated on your experience developing rich client
interfaces with zope 2 and 3. I am waiting for delivery of Philipp von
Weitershausen zope 3 book from Amazon. Hopefully I will be able to
share my zope 3/ rich client experience with you in the future.
