Electronic forms are an attractive way to automate paper-based processes and reduce material and personnel costs. This demo shows how to create an XML-based electronic form solution in three steps using Lotus® Forms to capture and send the data, and DB2® pureXML® to receive and store the data. The two are linked by a simple Web service that takes only minutes to create with Data Studio. This demo shows how to create the DB2 database and table to store the XML, how to create the Web service, and how to create the simple data capture and transmission form. It then shows you the running application, including how to query the data stored in DB2 pureXML and a Cognos® report built from the data.
