Well my requirement is to have open office spreadsheet integration so
that I can create ledger reports etc as a spreadsheet.
I had recently herd about a zope product which does that but can't
remember that name which was similar to zetac or some thing.

I will try and make my problem clear.
Right now my application is a twisted based rpc server application which
gives the set of api like setCustomer() getCustomer() etc.

Right now we have created a gtk based thin client which is nothing but
an rpc client which calls the rpc published objects in the server

Now if I want to take the entire rpc server based application and put it
into zope in such a way that my rpc application is not disturbed but the
features like PAS get integrated, will this be possible?

More presisely, I want to use zope for this same application server and
have it do the same work on xml rpc.

But if I have to re-write the entire rpc application server, then it
will be a tedious task.  What I am thinking is to take this twisted
based application server and make it a zope product.  This way my
classes and the published objects for rpc requests remain intact and I
continue adding feature enhancements like security and other advantages
which zope would give as an application server.  So my simple twisted
based rpc application becomes a zope product which sits in zope and
takes the advantage of all that zope has to offer.

I hope I am clear this time.

Thanks and 
happy hacking.
