XForms Tutorial and Cookbook

I am speaking tomorrow at the Minnesota Open Source User group (see http://www.josug.org) and I thought I would put some of my examples in Wikibook format. Here is a link: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/XForms Let me know if you have any feedback. Thanks - Dan

Thank you for starting the wikibook. XForms is a great subject and lack of examples slows down the addoption.

Thanks Alexey! I totally agree about the lack of examples slowing the adoption. I think that XForms is the best hope we have of getting a 10X improvement in application development productivity in the next few years. Both of the current books are lacking in complete examples.

Please pass the word on about the tutorial and cookbook and encourage people to submit examples that conform to the license guildlines.

Thanks again for the encouragement! - Dan

Your xForms Wiki is great and the examples work well with the FireFox extension. Terrific resource!

I too am looking for examples: one involving sorting, and another for selecting a subset of a nodeset.
