It is not a problem in Jython land.
Use JPublish as web framework. Next any decent web
framework such as Tapestry or Webwork allow to create
controller in Jython. The only thing which Jython is
missing is continuations to compete Javascript in
Cocoon. It seems the continuations is the next big
thing in Web Development.
About persistence. Hibernate is good.
Hibernate 3.0 supports dynamic components as Map. So
user can access hierarchy of tables as Map of Map. It
would be nice to add support to saving Python objects
and add ZODB style adapter in order to run Plone on
