Well following the example for woven, I thought that you needed to add to pythonpath where ever you are putting your code for your application, as in if I want to put my code in c:\web2\mohan_koteh\ then i should add this to the pythonpath to get it to work. Isn't it so ? I just kept on trying the woven examples but without success until i added the directory which i was working on to the pythonpath. Maybe I am doing something wrong here but can someone actually tell me how it is done ?
