Schemantix is our contribution to the frequently recurring discussion about
where XML, and XML schemas in particular, are actually useful. In essence,
it is a Open Source system for developing web application using XML schemas
as the core representation of application data structures. This provides a
single point of maintenance for these applications and thus solves many of
the problems associated with large-scale web applications written in
template-based languages like ASP, JSP, PHP and ColdFusion. For much more on
Schemantix, see www.schemantix.com.
The current version is an alpha release that includes the functionality for
generating HTML forms from XML schemas. The only schema language we
currently support is SOX, but we will have preliminary XSDL and DTD support
integrated over the next couple of weeks, as well as support for generating
reports as well as forms. I'll make a followup announcement as new features
become available. The entire system is available in full source code
compliant with the J2EE platform.
We'd be most interested in any feedback you might have, both with regard to
the overall philosophy of the system and the specific implementation. This
is an Open Source project, so if anyone would like to find out more about
contributing, please contact me directly.
