I would recommend that you look at Chiba.  You can find it at:


It's open source, and pretty decent.  There is a new version coming out quite 
soon that should support even more of the XForms recommendation/standard.

There is also an adapter module called Chicoon (part of Chiba, but a separate 
download) that allows you to run Chiba inside Cocoon, which is what I am 
doing.  However, the current version of Chicoon only works with an older 
version of Chiba.....I'm working on a new version to allow Chicoon to use the 
latest Chiba release as we speak.  Probably about a week or two before that 
is done.
