Re: Please take note of call for presentations at XForms special session 
at XML 2007

Hi John,

Here is an outline of a presentation we would like to give at the Dec. XML 
conference in Boston:

Title: The Pure Declarative Approach: XForms in Real Estate Forms Case 

Several developers in Minnesota have been building a prototype of a 
property tax real estate forms project using pure declarative 
technologies.  We use almost no Java or JavaScript and use mostly on XML 
Schemas to capture requirements, XML transforms to transform requirements 
into XForms, native XML databases to store the data (we are using eXist), 
Schematron to store business rule checks, and XQuery for manipulation and 
reporting of XML datasets. 

The key is to empower a business unit to maintain their own applications 
without IT involvement. This can be done if the specification are captured 
and changed graphically and the declarative languages that store the 
requirements small in scope. 

This makes building GUIs and transformation tasks easier.

I can create a more formal description of our talk if you would like.

Thanks - Dan
