Subject Antw: Re: Cocoon + PDF + Forms ?
Date Thu, 28 Sep 2006 13:48:39 GMT
Hello Brian,

As I understood you, your webserver gives HTML- Forms out to the user.
 and
your webserver gives PDF-Files (with Form funktionality) out to the
user.
The User inserts some data in one kind of the form, and this data went
back to your
 webserver and get there processed.
Right?

As for cocoon have a look at:
http://cocoon.zones.apache.org/demos/21branch/samples/blocks/tour/intro/docs/index.html
or install it local on your PC and look at the samples.

To your question:
HTML- based webforms are possible with cooon.
PDF-Based Forms as described up is not possible as I know.
The PDF support of cocoon is based on Apache FOP ( or iText)
kind regards,

martin
