The XML Forms Generator (XFG) provides a jump-start for form development. It can quickly and automatically produce valid and functional forms containing XForms markup embedded within an XHTML document. The input to form generation can be an XML data instance with or without a backing XML Schema, or a WSDL document. Data Web Services, which is based on SQL scripts and Store Procedures, is a database-related application of traditional Web Services. IBM® Data Studio is a client tool for generating Data Web Services visually with the help of a direct connection to the database. The integration between XFG and Data Studio can enable you to generate XForms/XHTMLs from Data Web Services generated by Data Studio. This integration provides advantages such as joining the development of UI pages and Data access seamlessly, reducing the workload of UI development from Data Web Services, and visualizing the pureXML™ UI development with full-support of validation.
