Subject XMLForm / instance data from XML / Popup sample
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2003 15:33:04 GMT
Hi all,

I've spend some time now understanding XMLForm and I have looked at
the popup sample from Michael 

I couldn't find a post from Josema Alonso regarding XForms & Xindice
that appeared related. Ivelin, which one do you have in mind? Could
you send me a link or a copy?

Indeed, the Popup sample has a similar edge to my whish to make a form
on the fly from XML.

Michael's WriteDOMTransformer does a fairly similar job as the
SimpleFormInstanceExtractionTransformer. Only that the latter already
uses OutputModules and has a slightly different default configuration.
(To be honest, it is based on the WriteDOMTransformer from 2.0.x,
which changed significantly in 2.1. A similarity is hence not

Together with the XmlFormPopupAction it is possible to create a form
on the fly. Great!

If no validation is required, and only the XForms -> HTML conversion
is needed, a complete XMLForms instance is needed, still. Would it be
possible / OK to remove the dependencies of the XMLFormTransformer
from Form? As far as I could see, all it does is lookup the Form and
use the getVale() method.

OK, there's violations and modelReferenceForView so that would be
difficult. Perhaps two transformers, a minimal one without this and
another one including violations and the modelReferenceForView?
