Question regarding XForm / Form.

I have a requirement for forms/xform for the web application I am working on where I want to provide feature to the end user to

1. Design the forms online (not very complex ones) and publish
2. Fill the forms and submit the same. (Also use the form data to persists)
3. Retrive the filled forms as read only.

I would like some suggestions and guidance as to which framework/product would be best suitable. I prefer a java library rather then a offline product. I have tried Orbeon but am not too sure whether this is the best solution. Also I am not able to figure out whether it can be integrated in my application.

Is standard JSP/JSF not enough for this requirement?

Hi Matijn,
Thanks for responding. Unfortunately I am not technologist so probably can't answer your question. I was researching on net for my requirement when I came across XForms / Orbeon. I liked the features that Orbeon provides out of the box but was not too sure whether it is the right technology to go for. Hence I posted my question for the gurus in the area to share their views and guide.

Also I would like to keep the form data as is instead of persisting in a database table.

OK, your requirements do sound a little more complex, alas I'm no expert in this area either
