Is there anywhere a list of Fortune 500 / FTSE 100 etc... companies that
use these technologies.
I guess the proof is in the "eating" i.e. people actually deploying
these technologies in mission critical applications.
This would be especially helpful to us in pushing Xforms as at the
moment it feels like we are "flogging a dead horse".
None of the banks we work with seem to be interested, I would especially
keen to hear of Financial services case studies.
Kind regards....................D

Subject: XForms and Web Forms 2.0
The current debate reminds me of SOA 2.0 and Grid 2.0. What's really
driving SOA 2.0 and Grid 2.0 is hollow, buzzword-based marketing by
companies trying to stand out in overpopulated and immature markets. On
SOA, we have a general, high-level consensus in the absence of a single
standards-based definition.
The inherent problem with Grid 2.0 is the philosophy behind grids has
always been about harnessing distributed computing power. In other
words, Grid 2.0 is grid 1.0 because it re-treads an accepted concept by
just adding more stuff. I seem to remember doing distributed computing
14 years ago.
As I mentioned both XForms and Web Forms 2.0 can exist as client side
technology, I use XForms and Dojo and Yahoo UI each one has a place the
question is determining where and when to use the best of what the
technology offers.
facileXForms - really AJAX at heart
