XML News from Monday, October 17, 2005

IBM's alphaWorks has posted the XML Forms Generator, a "data-driven Eclipse plug-in generates forms that adhere to the XForms 1.0 standard, using as a starting point either Web Service Description Language (WSDL) documents or XML instance documents having optional XML Schema backing models. The generated forms adhere to the XHTML and XForms 1.0 standards and can be viewed in popular XHTML and XForms renderers." This tool is part of the Emerging Technologies Toolkit (ETTK), which is a nice way of saying this is closed source and more than likely IBM will eventually abandon it without ever making it available for prodcution use; either as closed or open source.
