   RE: [xml-dev] [ANN] A new live XForms example: the "DMV Forms" sa mple a

You are welcome.  I'm glad to see demos like that.  Makes my job 
a lot simpler.

If we can get more synergy from Global Justice XML's data model 
for over the wire XML, regionalization is a much easier 
goal to meet for all the usual reasons.  And that floats 
all of the public safety boats plus makes it possible to meet the 
Executive Branch mandates.  The challenge is that each State tends 
to be a separate market and each agency in the State gets to set 
it's own rules.  That means one sells far more services than 
software for redundant effort, glue, conversion, etc.  Now that 
open source and XML are becoming a reality in these markets, it's 
time for the vendors to come out of the trenches and realize that 
their products must interoperate rather than disrupt.  It is a bad 
idea to sell in this marketplace with an eye to disrupting customer 
interoperability for what I hope are obvious reasons. :-)

Thanks for the reply, Erik.

First, thanks :-)

You are absolutely correct: the original PDF form is an official form 
from the DMV (which you can see automatically filled-out when you select 
"View Selected As PDF"), however we designed our own XML format for the 
XForms version. To tell you the truth, we did not look at whether there 
is in fact a California standard for this data in XML format. If there 
is one, it would certainly make sense to use it.
