As a founding member of the working group, current editor of the 
specification, and as an implementer, IBM Corporation is very pleased to 
see XForms 1.1 advance to a computing industry standard W3C 
Recommendation.  As a client technology, XForms simplifies web-based 
application development and deployment. XForms includes powerful 
declarative constructs for rich interactivity in data collection, 
simplifying application design and maintenance.  XForms enables a direct 
mapping to back-end XML data formats, smoothing the path from transaction 
schemas and vertical industry data standards to G2C and B2C web 
applications.  XForms connects client-side XML to web services, 
simplifying integration with portal applications, databases, and business 
process services. XForms is flexible enough to provide these capabilities 
on desktops and mobile devices, in web pages, in flowing office-style 
documents, and in very high-precision user interfaces.  Indeed, this 
substantial upgrade of XForms addresses many of the challenging problems 
faced by our customers as they seek to develop large web applications, and 
IBM already ships a number of commercial products that incorporate XForms 
1.1.
