New Orbeon Forms Tutorial

Hierarchical Menu

After lots of promises over the past few months, the new Orbeon Forms tutorial is finally available! You can read it online or get it with any recent builds of Orbeon Forms.

The tutorial specifically targets the upcoming Orbeon Forms 3.5, of which you can find nightly builds here. The tutorial covers:

  • Installing and configuring Orbeon Forms.

  • Understanding the simple XForms Hello application.

  • Building from scratch the Bookcast application, which allows you to keep track of the books you have read. The Bookcast application introduces many concepts of XForms, handles persistence, and, as icing on the cake, even generates an Atom feed!

This is the first public version of the tutorial, and if you have any questions, issues or suggestions, please send a message to the ops-users mailing-list. It is easy to subscribe by following these instructions.
