Date Thu, 25 Jan 2007 18:50:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cocoon Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by LarsHuttar:
http://wiki.apache.org/cocoon/XFormsInCocoon

The comment on the change is:
added FormFaces, AjaXForms, and Concentré

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  I started a response, entitled "XMLForms is dead, long live XForms" in my blog at http://dubinko.info/blog/2004/10.html#perm2004-10-13_xmlforms
I'm interested in any comments. Eventually, I will fold that entry into the Wiki. -- MicahDubinko
  
+ Technical considerations aside, one significant reason to prefer XForms over CForms is that
the latter is a Cocoon-only approach. Thus your investment in CForms is tightly coupled to
your decision /ability to continue using Cocoon.

If I were doing this project over again, this feature of Firefox would receive careful attention.
Of course, you still have to consider whether most of your users will be using IE; and hope
that IE 7.0 will support much of XForms.

ZERO server-side processing and ZERO plug-ins." (Check [http://www.formfaces.com/status.html
