Subject RE: Alternatives to XMLForm: what's the state of art?
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2003 12:14:10 GMT
Hello Reinhard,

What are the advantages if I choose JXForms (Cocoon Control Flow) instead of XMLForms (Action)?

>We will do the changes (integration of JXForms into the XMLForms block) 
>the next days.

About the form, do the changes include the match of the latest XForms Candidate Release?


Thanks
Regards
Sylvain (T)

XMLForms will be released with Cocoon 2.1 
(http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xml-cocoon-dev&m=105757294526615&w=2).

JXForms which are part of the scratchpad will be integrated into
the XMLForms block. The main difference between XMLForms and JXForms
is the controller but not the form declaration itself. So there should
be only minor changes necessary (if any at all). So the result will be

  - an XMLForms block with two controller implementations
    - Action
    - Cocoon Control Flow

We will do the changes (integration of JXForms into the XMLForms block)
the next days.

If you are looking for an alternative (which has NOTHING to do with
XMLForms) checkout Woody (a block) but it is not ready for
production use at the moment because the interfaces are not stable.
