Plone, an open source Content Management System based on Zope, contains everything needed for large-scale deployment: a heavy-duty object database, user authentication and management, system, and object publisher.

Many organizations, however, have a need to integrate Plone within existing systems and environments. This includes utilization of data in an existing RDBMS, authentication using existing LDAP or Active Directory systems, and interaction with other applications using various remoting capabilities like web services or RSS.

This tutorial covers integrating Plone with various external data sources and components including:

- Storing Plone content in relational databases (including popular Open Source databases as well as proprietary databases)

- Authenticating users against LDAP servers and Active Directory

- Exchanging site and searching information with RSS, XML-RPC, and SOAP
