Hi,
 
I recently found a sourceforge project which uses XML Schemas for generating XForms controls within XHTML documents.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xsdtrans
I must confess that I haven't tested it yet.
As far as I know XFormation also offers a nice feature for schema-generated forms.
Take a look at http://www.xformation.com/product/pr03_11.asp <http://www.xformation.com/product/pr03_11.asp> 
 
Hope this helps.
 
best regards,
Roman

	Betreff: Re: XForms and InfoPath
	
	
	Hi,
	 
	Thanks for your reply! 
	I already have a standard XML schema. The problem is that is very large and indeed, contains a lot of rich text and recursivity. And i dont know whether i can integrate these 2 items into XForms. This schema was integrated into InfoPath, but now that we want to replace InfoPath with Xforms i cannot use anything from the InfoPath stuff.. :)And i only have the schema as a starting point. Any oppinions of how could i do that?
	Im looking forward for your answer. 
	Simina
