Roadmap and support for Web Forms

Question asked by xchaotic on Nov 19, 2010
Hi everyone.

I'm just beginning to learn Alfresco. The most immediate need I have is a simple form submission app exposed with a RESTful interface.
It looks like Alfresco might be an easy way to prototype that. I like the Surf approach, but FCD seems completely proprietary.
What was wrong with the 'old' approach that used XSD + annotations to generate a standards based Xform?
It seems like that was much more flexible and better supported solution.
Is it possible to generate the new 'FCD' Form straight from schema?
What is the roadmap for the forms and tools around it in Alfresco?
I assume FCD is where the devs are going, but why such a decision, what's wrongs with XForms?
