Digital Creations Chooses Mozilla For Next Generation Zope Management
FREDERICKSBURG, Va., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Creations announced
today that the next generation of its Zope application server will leverage
browser technology from the Mozilla project.
Zope is the leading Open Source application server, specializing in
content management systems, portals, and custom solutions. Mozilla is a next-
generation Web browser, developed as an Open Source project and delivering
technology for AOL's Netscape products.
``Zope is the premier example of a pure Internet architecture for
application servers,'' says Paul Everitt, CEO of Digital Creations. ``However,
being competitive in the content management and portal management markets
requires an upgrade to Zope's classic Web front end. With Mozilla we get an
advanced environment for Web applications that enhances the Zope vision of a
pure Internet architecture. It's a natural fit for these two Open Source
leaders to work together.''
Mitchell Baker, Chief Lizard Wrangler for mozilla.org, said ``Mozilla is a
new, standards-based architecture for next-generation Web applications. This
alliance with Zope is an innovative example of coupling this new browser
seamlessly with a powerful server architecture. We are excited to welcome
Digital Creations and the Zope community in this initiative.''
The goal of the Zope/Mozilla initiative is to deliver a next-generation
management environment for Zope that retains an end-to-end Open Source
solution for web applications. This initiative will spawn a number of Zope
community projects led by Digital Creations and others. A roadmap, initial
architecture documents, and a prototype will be unveiled at the Zope Track at
the Eighth International Python Conference in January 2000.
