I'm really sorry for this duplicate email : I am not
very familiar with mailing lists, and had to change my
subscription address.
The question follows.

----------------------------------------------------

Hi,

My aim is to forward some instance data from a first
XForms page (form1.xml) to a second XForms page
(form2.xml).

form1 and form2 share the same instance data schema.

The functional aim is to split a complex
validation/submission process among two or more
screens :
- form1 would expose first half the instance data and
perform the related validations.
- form2 would first receive the instance data
submitted by form1, expose the rest of the inputs to
be filled, and perform the rest of the validations
(which would involve data submitted through form1).

Is this kind of approach conformant to the XForms
recommandation ?
Does someone know a (possibly open source) product
which allows this ?
I've tryed with Chiba but didn't find a way.

Thank you in advance.
Paolo Crisafulli
