This article deals with the support of British Web developers for Zope, an open source application server already popular in the U.S. and Europe, but which has yet to enter Great Britain. On April 19, 2004, commercial Zope vendors will join forces to launch the Zope Association, which aims to promote open source technology in general and Zope as a development tool. The forum will launch in the House of Commons, with founding members including British commercial organizations that already use Zope. Zope moved to open source in 1999 and is now supported by a global community. The multi-platform server is written in Python, which is well-suited to Web development. Zope also offers an object database and has a number of open source tools and plug-ins already available. The Zope Association will be pushing for government take-up arguing that government departments should have full control of their code and not depend on suppliers. The association will represent 75 percent of British Zope vendors. Membership will be free.
