All,

Mozquito has launched the first public beta
of XML WebAccess 2.0 this week. The XML
WebAccess 2.0 server software is installed
on our http://solutions.mozquito.com external
web server. That's why the previous XForms
tutorial actually worked in IE, see message:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-forms/2001Sep/0008.html

The XML WebAccess 2.0 server software 
implements XML-UI by transcoding the markup 
into javascript, allowing existing browsers to 
render XML-UI/XForms documents.

XML-UI is a XHTML family member using modules from:
- XHTML
- XForms
- FML (instead of XForms UI, for now)

More information on the product, beta download, etc.
at http://www.mozquito.com.

A Quick Reference Card of all XML-UI tags and
attributes is available at:
http://www.mozquito.org/sources/xmluiquickrefcard.pdf

A few initial XML-UI/XForms examples can be found at:
http://solutions.mozquito.com/demo/examples/

XML WebAccess 2.0, and therefore XForms, can be 
tested by everyone on the new public FTP trial server.

Public FTP Access to http://solutions.mozquito.com:

	username:	forms
	password:	www
	www access:	http://solutions.mozquito.com/www-forms/

Everyone can create their own subdirectory under
the "forms" root directory and upload their 
XML-UI/XForms documents and XML instance data to 
test-drive XML WebAccess 2.0 and XForms.

I've already created such a directory for Stephane 
Culang's <produit.xml> XForms example. You can find
his XForm under:
http://solutions.mozquito.com/www-forms/culang/produit.xhtml

With the FTP access, Stephane can now play around with it, 
modify, etc. Once happy, the server software can be 
downloaded as a trial version from the Mozquito Website 
and installed on any web server, currently IIS/NT and 
Solaris only, later Apache on Linux and FreeBSD, too. 
Once the software is installed on a web server like it
is on http://solutions.mozquito.com, XML-UI/XForms 
documents can be rendered by browsers like IE5 as if 
there was native browser support for XForms.

Since we're still in beta, things will change and 
nothing is perfect or bug-free just yet - but some 
XForms actually do work in standard browsers as of now!

Mozquito's XForms implementation "XML WebAccess 2.0" 
will also be fully bundled into the next version of 
Software AG's XML Tamino Server Package:
http://www.softwareag.com/corporat/news/august2001/Mozquito.htm

I'm happy to give more interactive XForms tutorials like
I did with Stephane - if someone has an XML file he/she 
wants an XForm written for, I'm personally interested as
a XML developer to see whether it can be done with the 
current XForms implementation.

Have a good weekend,

- Sebastian
