Re: Lessons learned from recent projects and what of2007?
Hi and thank you Manos I'd just plead a little that soon we might have a fair bit of valuable business logic (such as codelists, business rules, etc) besides the basic schemas of the model in an XForms file for, say, a particular document in a given context or language (or tax jurisdiction, say) and having then a way to just load that form into something like MD4J could be very cool indeed. It's great to get value from the schema alone but UBL work has well proven in high profile that more than the schema is necessary in real-life situations such as normal business. The direction this is going though seems quite optimal to me and maybe the progress speed is sufficient to keep the relevant folk onboard - that would be great.

For me it was a delima; either announce early to get some interest to help the project move forward, or wait untill it reaches a certain level of quality and user friedlyness (and risk having it end up in /dev/null). > So these two have to be weighed at a fundamental level when > applying the technologies of XML, such as XSLT and XForms. BTW the generators currently employed are using XSLT under the hood. I'd like to support XMI, RNG and RDFS/OWL as input, but XForms seem very distant to me. I guess i always had a bad impression for XForms because OS tools are not there yet. As a webapp oriented dev, i'm tired of seeing everyone trying to fill the client support gaps on the server's side. It is a noble effort but...  http://md4j.sourceforge.net/ Cheers, Manos _______________________________________________________________________ XML-DEV is a publicly archived, unmoderated list hosted by OASIS to support XML implementation and development.
