Hi Rob , 
I think Forms player works as a renderer . To display a html form that has
xform tags. But if the user updates something and submits again the request
goes in the form of name&value pairs am i right . 

For me i have to talk to xml inteface. So there should be a processor on the
client side that changes these name values pair to xml . Thus requires a
processor in the server side. 
So when we have a server side processor  there is no seperate need of a
client side processor. 

Correct me if i am wrong.

I haven't used any of the server side processors, but on the client side
have used "FormsPlayer" (http://www.FormsPlayer.com/) with some excellent
results, and am currently working with an in-house ActiveX dll written as a
client side component (written in VB it uses the IE "HTC" architecture and
therefore sits very comfortably with style sheets, and can easily be
customised for non-compliant extensions to the xForm specification).

It is my belief that client side processing makes better use of the xForm
features such as relevance checking and instance validation with schema
without "bothering" the server. I don't fully understand why so many
companies put more processing power on every desktop than  NASA used to get
to the moon, then overload a couple of servers with all their applications.

We are currently testing a pre-release version of a drag and draw xForm
compliant forms designer, some details of which and some screen-shots can be
found at http://www.blackdog.co.uk

Best Regards
