You get part of the picture with Zope (http://www.zope.org).

Compared with J2EE+EJB, Zope lacks request spanning transactions
and the third tier corresponding to EJB containers.

We use Zope as base of an E-Commerce platform.
We recently replaced a J2EE+EJB E-commerce solution
by the Zope based platform. The Zope solution was much
lighter weight (especially with respect to development time).
