Hi John,


I will ask the team to post the test report. Obviously we are testing
against the test suite.


Best regards,

Hi Jeroen, 

This is very exciting news. Congratulations on your release. 
Your conformance level to the specification is very good, and on behalf
of the W3C Forms working group, I would like to ask if you could provide
an implementation report of your XForms 1.1 engine. 
Having the documented knowledge of which tests you pass will greatly
help the working group to advance XForms 1.1 to full recommendation. 

An example of the report is here:
The test suite is here:

Please let us know if this will be possible.  It would be a great
service to the W3C if it were possible as we would use your
implementation report as part of the requirements to advance XForms 1.1
to proposed recommendation, which is the version that the fulll W3C then
decides upon for full recommendation.  Participating in this way has
obvious implications for raising awareness of the availability of your

Thank you,

XForms 1.1 implementation



EMC recently implemented an XForms 1.1 engine. 
-          GWT implementation deployable as a pure javascript engine
without any server requirements 
-          Over 90% compliant to the XForms 1.1 spec. limitations: 
o   No XML Schema types support 
o   Only basic serialization as application/xml is currently supported 
-          Several enhancements beyond XForms 1.1, especially support
for layout documents 
Enhancements are implemented as pure enhancements on top of the core
XForms 1.1 implementation
