Subject RE: Cocoon Forms vs. JSF
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 07:07:47 GMT
But we are in the business of XML... and getting to grips
with a (relative simply) new schema is hardly a "new technology".
And Javascript is probably the most commonly used language
on the web.  I can't agree these represent a major learning

But we digress from the topic.  I would certainly like to learn more
about how JSF compares and operates.  Each new idea can 
spark off others - as per this quote from Peter Norvig:

"Homogeneity is great for milk, but not for ideas."

Wait a minute - a form definition uses a different XML schema than the
template and the sitemap and the Flowscript is even an entirely
language. That's a mix of four schemes/grammars for one form and you
have to
know all of them.
