Hi,

You may want to look at Orbeon PresentationServer (OPS), which
features a server-side XForms engine:

   http://www.orbeon.com/software/
   http://forge.objectweb.org/projects/ops/

OPS is open source under the LGPL, and joined ObjectWeb in January.

See also this post in our blog about server-side XForms:

   http://www.orbeon.com/blog/index.php?p=7

We will also give a talk about server-side XForms at XTech 2005 in
Amesterdam in May:

   http://www.xtech-conference.org/2005/schedule.asp

The OPS platform actually provides more than XForms. It provides a lot
of support for XML-centric applications, thanks to built-in MVC-based
declarative page flow, XML pipelines with the XPL language, XSLT
transformations, Schema validation, etc. In other words, for the
person looking at the platform from the XForms world, it addresses
questions such as:

o How do I produce pages that include XForms?
o How do I populate XForms instances with data coming from a service?
o What do I do with posted XForms instances?
o Etc.

Feel free to ask further questions, whether here or in the ops-users
mailing-list:
