I don't think Adobe Designer supports XForms currently. Adobe Designer looks
a good tool however they are using a proprietary format called XDP which is
not XForms. In addition I don't think it supports generating an XDP from a
Schema either.

I am pretty sure that the new Adobe Form Designer 6.0 will do this. 

Have a good day,

Hi Andre, 

We have a product which will allow you to generate an XForms document from a
XML Schema. In the current version of the tool you can select the relevant
elements that you want included within your XForms document and XFormation
will generate it embedded within a simple XHTML document. 

You can also use XFormation to extend,modify and preview the XForms

You simply download the product from 
and install it. 

Then go to the tools menu and there will be an option to generate an 
XForms document. When you select that, you can browse for the 
relevant XSD and select the elements that you want to generate the 
XForms from. Then simply press OK. 

This will then create your XForms document. 

We are currently working on enhancements which will improve this process so
keep an eye on the web site to check for updates.

If you have any problem please don't hesitate to contact me at 


Rhydian Morris

I am trying to find a way to generate an XForm (or even a normal form) 
automatically from an XML Schema file. I have been trying to use the 
Schema2XForms facility from Chiba with mixed results so far (perhaps because

of my own ignorance). 

Does anyone know of other alternatives for me to generate an XForm 
automatically from an XML Schema?
