FiForms Framework

The FiForms Framework is an application development framework for building Web-database applications in XML, powered by MySQL and PHP. AJAX-enhanced forms, sub-forms, custom reports, and dynamically generated menus create a seamless user experience. The FiForms Framework lets you rapidly prototype and develop a Web/database front end using the latest PHP and XML technologies. It currently includes data-entry classes and XML report generation scripts. The libraries utilize the new XML capabilities of PHP 5 to create a framework for developing Web applications completely in XML languages.
