XsForm: A Schema-Driven Form-Based XML Information Processor

Shang-Hsien Hsieh, Hsien-Tang Lin

A form-based XML information processor, named XsForm, has been developed in this work. XsForm takes an XML schema as input and generates the corresponding Windows forms automatically to facilitate gathering, editing, sharing, and management of XML information. The information processed in XsForm is then saved into a well-formed and valid XML file for further e-business applications. This paper discusses the development of XsForm and its application to promote e-business in the construction industry.
