This is encouraging! We've been thinking about porting just the DTML module 
to Java. We have a large client who is committed to Java Servlets for most 
of their transactional applications, but have deployed Zope for part of 
their editorial content. We have been studying the feasibility of porting 
DTML either to JPython or to Java directly. We believe DTML is a very smart 
approach do HMTL server-side scripting, and making it available on the Java 
platform could convert more people to Zope in the long run.

Is anyone else interested in taking part in such an effort?

Best regards,
