What is zetadb
zetadb is a python / zope tool that allows a rapid application
development (RAD) of relational database oriented web applications.
Currently, it implements PostgreSQL and MySQL support. Other database
will be added in the future. 

It automatically generates transladable, user friendly, and database
independent zope objects to maintain data over the web. It also allow
generation of data-filled OpenOffice documents. 

Using zetadb you will be able to develop professional intranet /
extranet business applications 4 or 5 times faster than using other more
generalistic tools / languages
