Subject [jira] Created: (COCOON-2137) XSD Schemas for CForms Development

XSD Schemas for CForms Development
----------------------------------

                 Key: COCOON-2137
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COCOON-2137
             Project: Cocoon
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Blocks: Forms
            Reporter: Gabriel Gruber
            Priority: Minor


A common pitfall in developing cforms applications is the misuse of certain cforms tags.
A schema for the forms files (definition, binding, template) would greatly help in writing
forms code faster and more accurate and minimizing syntax errors in the first place.

I have started writing such schemas for the binding and definition files and added notations
out of the current (2.1.10) cforms documentation.  those schemas are quite completet (well
almost).

I also added starting points for this schemas:
- i18n transformer
- jx template generator

furthermore form template generator (and form instance) would be interesting. the major problem
with the template is that we are heavily mixing different xml gramars here and state-of-the-art
xml editors (like oxygen) have their problems with providing auto-complete features here.
the code-completion (assistance) feature for the form-definition and form-binding works quite
well. it also has the added benefit, that the important bits of the cocoon forms docs are
being displayed.
