Part II: The Ten-Thousand-Foot View

Part II: The Ten-Thousand-Foot View

This part of the book provides an overview over some of the fundamental ideas in Zope 3. It doesn't jump into the technical details. You might prefer to read these chapters after reading some of the more hands-on parts, such as Parts III, IV, and V.

Chapter 5: The Zope 3 Development Process

This chapter briefly introduces the process that is used to develop and fix components for Zope 3.

Chapter 6: An Introduction to Interfaces

Because interfaces play a special role in Zope 3, it is important that you understand what they are used for and what they offer to developers.

Chapter 7: The Component Architecture: An Introduction

This chapter provides an overview of components and their possible interactions.

Chapter 8: Zope Schemas and Forms

One of the powerful features that comes up over and over in Zope 3 is schemas. Schemas are an extension to interfaces, and they allow attributes to be specified in more detail, which in turn allows autogeneration of forms as well as the conversion and validation of the inputted data.

Chapter 9: Introduction to Zope Configuration Markup Language (ZCML)

Although you are probably familiar with ZCML by now, this chapter provides a comprehensive introduction.

Chapter 10: Introduction to Zope's I18n and L10n Support

This introduction presents the new I18n and L10n features of Zope 3 and demonstrates how you can completely internationalize a Zope application. This chapter discusses I18n in ZPT, DTML, ZCML, and Python code.

Chapter 11: Metadata and the Dublin Core

The Dublin Core: Everyone knows about it, everyone talks about it, but few know the details. This chapter discusses the fields of the Dublin Core, as well as how you can and should use them.

Chapter 12: Porting Applications from Zope 2 to Zope 3

For many developers, it is very important to have a migration path from Zope 2 applications to Zope 3. This chapter concentrates on the technical aspects of this type of porting and discusses the design changes that have to be applied to make an old Zope application fit the new model. The porting of ZWiki is used as an example.
