Z Object Publishing Environment (Zope)
Definition - What does Z Object Publishing Environment (Zope) mean?
Techopedia explains Z Object Publishing Environment (Zope)
One goal of Zope, according to some of its proponents, is to promote an alternative to "packaged" content management systems. Using tools like the Z4M Mobile Reporter (a mobile client), the Z4M Broadcast (a content publication system), as well as the ZRS Replication Services, users can develop content management and publishing solutions independent of large commercial vendors. Some features of Zope including a "drag-and-drop layout" allow for more independent design in an open-source environment. One way to describe the evolution of Zope is that the open-source developer base has built different Web frameworks that work differently but have the same underlying philosophy and similar code bases.
