If you're interested in end-results you can check out:


I wrote the server-side application for this site and it is a content
management system written with mpservlets.  It's backed by a
PostgreSQL database.  There's hardly any static content on the site,
even the drop-down menu items are largely filled dynamically.  Of
course, what you can't see is the admin side where content managers
can edit and upload content, which is too bad because even these forms
are generated dynamically by python and driven off the data-dictionary
of the underlying data objects.
