Chapter 20. XForms and CFML > The History of XForms

The History of XForms

XForms was first conceived in the late 1990's, with a W3C working group producing the first draft of a specification in 2000. Within a year, people realized that an XML grammar that interoperates with XHTML would be needed, and finally in August 2003, a recommendation was submitted.

Several companies went to work creating XForms interpreters that could run with your browser; several companies have produced XForms tools including the Novell XForms plug in for Microsoft Internet Explorer (http://developer.novell.com/xforms/), the Mozilla/Firefox XForms extension has just been released in beta form (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xforms/), and many products from companies such as Formfaces, XFormation, Altova, and Hyfinity. In addition, there are several open source implementations including those from Chiba, DENG, Zen Interactif, X-Smiles, and Orbeon, as well as several companies working to integrate them into their applications, including Sun, Oracle, and IBM.
