Hi Andrew,
 
XFormation is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for the authoring
of XForms. It currently supports XForms creation via schema driven context
sensitive menus,  previewing and debugging via the formsPlayer renderer,
XForms generation from schemas and multiple views of the same document.

Subject: XForms Design Tools - What is out there?



[In a sense this is a repeat of a post from April 2003. The XForms player
side seems to be healthy but XForms design tools are much less visible - at
least to me.]

What XForms design tools are presently available?

Looking at the list of Implementations yesterday the Holosofx (sp?) XForm 
designer seemed to be interesting but, on the face of it at least, has been 
swallowed into IBM.

LiquidOffice seems to have a design component.

What other XForms design tools are out there?

On list responses are obviously ideal since the whole XForms community 
benefits by public sharing of knowledge. However, if your product is under 
wraps and you can only share information under an NDA I would be happy to 
hear of emerging interesting tools off list.

I assume the Holosofx designer will be part of WebSphere. Can anyone confirm
that?

Which tools are folks using to design XForms?

Are there any interesting betas out there?

Can I suggest that the Implementations section of the XForms page at W3C,
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/#implementations
<http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/#implementations> , be updated and split
into viewers and design tools?
