catapp = win32com.client.Dispatch("CATIA.application") 
#Attention: runs only if you have set TOOLS/CUSTOMIZE/OPTIONS to Englisch.

My prefered web framework

My prefered web framework for developing web applications is Django. Django calls itself The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. It is a really fast, scalable and (thanks Python) the sexiest web framework of the world.
