- XForms technologysearch for term
The next generation of Web forms. XForms are designed to overcome the limitations of HTML forms by providing a robust, standards-based way to define Web forms. The advantages of the XForms standard include the following:
- Separate data, logic, and presentation modules
- A powerful event model (so that you don't have to use a lot of scripting for client-side validation or calculations)
- A way to process data in XML formats
XForms cannot run as standalone applications. They are designed to run as components within a host language such as XHTML. In the Novell implementation, they run within the context of a pageflow application.
