Was : [INTERFACES] Trying to find a PostgreSQL interface

About Zope, that I didn't know about before today, has anyone usage information/examples, or experience he/she can talk about.
I think that it includes the parts I was wondering for : resusable SQL queries repository, and transaction/session management.
Has anyone used this product or compared it with others, and even have pointers to other free products like this one ?

Thanks for any information,

You may also try Zope (

AFAIK you can save the CGI startup costs as PHP is loaded as a module in 
Apache. If it has persistent database connections (like Zope) then you
save the DB connection setup and so it can easyly beat C CGI on anything 
but most compute-intensive tasks.
