FW: Request for being added to the XForms Implementations List



Dear Mr. Boyer,
 
we would like to ask you to add our visual Web-based XForms editor to the 
W3C XForms Group Wiki’s Implementations page (please see my previous email 
below). As I haven’t got any response so far, I would like to know if 
there are any formal requirements which our software does not meet? If 
there is any further information required from my side, please let me 
know.
 
Thank you very much for your help!

Dear working group,
 
Our research group at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in 
Germany has developed a visual Web-based XForms editor which is available 
for free at: 
 
http://research.tm.uka.de/DialogDSLDemosite

 
We are kindly requesting to be added to the W3C XForms Group Wiki’s 
Implementations Page (
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/XForms_Implementations).
 
The editor promotes a two-layered modeling approach which strongly focuses 
on dynamic behavior and usability aspects of advanced Web-based dialogs:
1.)    On the first layer, a dialog’s data model can be visually grouped 
into semantically cohesive groups and dynamic transitions between these 
groups can be defined (“Previous / Next” or selection-dependent 
transitions). 
2.)    On the second layer, each partition’s appearance can be designed in 
detail, thereby particularly emphasizing usability-enhancing attributes 
like help, hint, validations etc. 
 
All modeling can be done visually in the browser. The implementation is 
AJAX-based which fosters an efficient and satisfying modeling experience. 
Besides that, also direct manipulations on the XForms markup code can be 
performed. 
 
The editor is part of our “Dialog DSL” research which was presented at the 
WWW2008 and the ICWE2008:

http://icwe2008.webengineering.org/Program/Proceedings/ISBN978-0-7695-3261-5/3261a038.pdf

 
We have also begun to conduct empirical evaluations of the editor’s 
adequacy for stakeholders with a non-IT-related background. The current 
results indicate significant efficiency gains as well as a good 
effectiveness / usability, also for non-programmers. More information 
about the evaluation can be found in my PhD thesis “Web Engineering for 
Workflow-based Applications: Models, Systems and Methodologies” which is 
available at:
 
http://digbib.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/volltexte/1000012659

 
We would greatly appreciate being listed on the “XForms Implementations” 
page mentioned above. If you should have questions or feedback, please do 
not hesitate to contact me. 
 
Thank you very much for your attention!
