We will speak at the XForms evening that will take place alongside the XML 2007 Conference in Boston (3-5 December 2007). The XForms evening will take place on Monday, December 3 and will feature seven 15-minute talks (we want to make sure you won't get bored). Our talk will be about XForms and eXist:
XForms and the eXist XML database: a perfect couple
XForms speaks XML natively, and so does the open source eXist XML database. In this talk, we show how they form a particularly attractive combination.
In particular, we show how the XForms 1.1 submission module, which supports REST, can be used to perform CRUD operations in eXist. We also look at how XForms can directly submit XML database queries using the powerful XQuery 1.0 language implemented by eXist. The result is an architecture where complete applications can be developed with an XForms processor and the eXist database, while relying entirely on open standards.
We conclude the presentation with live demonstrations of the XForms + eXist combination built using open source software.
We hope to see your there!
