Hi everyone,

On Wednesday I presented at a W3C-organised conference organised
around XML access languages (XPath, XQuery, XSLT and so on), and my
session was on how these technologies could be used with XForms.

My presentation argued that by using REST and XQuery to interact with
an XML data store (in my case, eXist), we could develop web
applications simply by using rich clients like XForms and Ajax. The
server-side software can be installed and run, and real tasks can be
carried out, with no need for server-side languages like ASP, JSP,
PHP, etc. In addition, the problems of complex database maintainance,
as you get with relational databases, just disappears. By moving as
much as possible off the server--and into XForms--we ease maintainance
and improve portability.

Other presentations look at XQuery, the latest version of XSLT, and
using eXist to build a flexible web application--all issues that are
probably of interest to at least a few people on this list.

A link to all of the presentations is available here:
