All,

I thought I would point to a new example that we developped. It
implements a dynamic user interface for To Do lists done 100% with
XForms, on top of the open-source-Ajax-enabled OPS XForms engine. Go
try it out here (it works with stock Firefox and IE):

   http://www.orbeon.com/ops/goto-example/xforms-todo

This example illustrates many cool XForms features, such as:

   o Nested xforms:repeat

   o Use of "relevant" for conditional display of controls

   o Typing which allows for automatic formatting of dates

   o Use of xforms:submission with instance="replace", here to call a
     service able to format an XML document into HTML.

   o Use of multiple instances

   o Use of xforms:setfocus and xforms:setindex

The formatted source code of the page is available here:

   http://www.orbeon.com/ops/goto-source/xforms-todo/view.xhtml

Constructive feedback is always appreciated!

Enjoy,

-Erik

Note #1: There is no persistence: it's just a UI demo for now.

Note #2: We plan for the OPS XForms engine to support Opera and Safari
in the future. Like with all Ajax-based software, there is some
compatibility work to do to get there, but all modern browsers will be
supported at some point. Contrary to most Ajax-based development
however, the developers of OPS are taking care of cross-browser
compatibility, while you concentrate on writing your application with
XForms.

Note #3: We are still working on performance (the software is in beta
after all).
