AARP Launches Zope-powered Site; AARP Webplace Content Managed by Zope

    FREDERICKSBURG, Va., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Zope Corporation, the leader
 in open source content management and the developers of Zope(R), the leading
 open source web application server, is partnering with AARP to deliver their
 next generation of content management for use on their member-focused website,
 AARP Webplace, at http://www.aarp.org.
     Zope Corporation worked with AARP to implement a Content Management System
 (CMS) which changes the way they publish content on AARP Webplace. Site layout
 is controlled in a WYSIWYG ('what you see is what you get') manner, allowing
 content to automatically fill the layout on demand. Zope is the leading
 product allowing designers and programmers to work on the same pages/sections,
 without interfering with each other's work. This is accomplished through the
 use of Zope Page Templates (ZPT), a unique technology pioneered by Zope
 Corporation.
     Zope Corporation delivered a content producer's work area, creating a
 personalized filtered view for the entire content repository. From that
 "workspace," all workflow relating to content or layout is initiated.
     "Zope Corporation delivered a system that has really improved the way we
 manage our web content," said Beth Mazur, Manager of Web Development at AARP.
 "They worked with us to customize Zope to meet our special needs to publish
 content, given our tiered development platform and unique network environment.
 We're using Zope Corporation's Zope Replication Server (ZRS) product to ensure
 the timely controlled migration of data to our production servers."
     "Working with the team at AARP has been a wonderful, collaborative
 experience for us," said Rob Page, CEO of Zope Corporation. "They welcomed CMS
 best practices, and helped push us to deliver a new solution for this type of
 media property."
