This is Very useful, thank you.

Why didn't you choose a server side XForms solution like Orbeon?

Kind regards............Dharmesh

Subject: Re: Java Server Faces

I started my current project in client-side XForms.  I've now
converted it to server-side JSF.

The two technologies are quite similar in how they define and solve
problems, but XForms is generally interpreted on the client while JSF
is generally interpreted on the server.

There's nothing preventing an XForms renderkit for JSF, but it would
be quite a bit of work to make them work together due to the large
amount of overlap between the two technologies, since both
technologies perform the same processes.

There's a Feb 2005 article titled "Using JSF technology for XForms
applications" that you can take a look at.

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/edu/j-dw-java-jsfx-i.html

I read through it before I started XForms or JSF, and I probably
should read through it again.   At the time, the sample code didn't
work, and my understanding of both technologies was still weak.   My
impressions at the time were that the proposed solution didn't really
make the technologies work together, but simply used JSF to generate
an XForms page which was then independent of JSF.

I would love to see an integrated set of XForms JSF components that
transparently transferred information between the two systems.
