XForms Team,

The next FormFaces variant is a pure JavaScript solution. This means
that XForms+HTML can be sent directly to the browser where JavaScript
transcodes the XForms controls to HTML form controls and processes the
bindings. This is extremely simple to use, just insert the following tag
into your XForms+HTML document:

<script type="javascript" src="xforms.js"></script>

The FormFaces JavaScript is compatible with any Browser that implements
ECMAScript and DOM Level 2 which includes Internet Explorer, Mozilla,
Opera, Konquerer, Safari and others, and does not require any
server-side processing. To this end, the new FormFaces framework enables
XForms applications independent of server-side technologies and browser

This new FormFaces variant will be available via the www.formfaces.com
website April 2005, and will be licensed under both a GPL and commercial
license similar to the MySQL license model.

For an alpha version prior to this release, please contact

Very respectfully,
Gary Sikora
FormFaces Project Manager

Hello everyone!

I have already read a lot of  things about xForm technology, and I got
the knowledge about the theoretical backgraound of this. But I want to
apply xForm technology to practice.

The reason of my using xForm is that some HTML site should be created
and when an user fill in the form and submit it, than some xForm
Processor should create any neutral XML data, which can sent to some
application (e.g. XML Web Service). First requirement is that respective
User Interface should be created in HTML because Plug-in for web browser
will be avoided so that each web browser will be able to show respective

I need for my project some appropriate tool, which meets my
requirements. Is there some tool for this work? I appreciate any tips
and pointers.

freundliche Gruesse / best regards
