I have been able to create PDF,HTML from XML using XSL:FO and XSL respectively.
Is it possible to create Editable PDF with form controls on it(inputbox,textarea,submit,reset..)from the XML using
XSL:FO and read the datas again using XSL:FO.
Does Adode eforms or FDF come here ?

That is..

1.Create XML,XSL:FO then the Editable PDF file with form controls
2.Upload PDF file in Web,enduser will fill data in PDF file,click submit.
3.Filled PDF will reach server,use JSP or ASP or CGI to read PDF file,convert it to XML
4.Store or modify or display XML.

Is it Possible to do the above stuff.Please give me some links to learn about this.
