PureEdge to Support W3C XForms Recommendation
PureEdge Strengthens Support for XForms
XForms 1.0 Released Today as a W3C Recommendation
Victoria, BC, Canada. October 14, 2003.
PureEdge Solutions Inc., the leader in secure, XML forms-based business process automation, congratulates the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the XForms Working Group on its release today of XForms 1.0 as a W3C Recommendation. PureEdge is a founding member of the W3C's XForms Working Group.
"We're pleased to have co-authored XForms 1.0," said Dr. John Boyer, a PureEdge Senior Product Architect and Research Scientist. "PureEdge has played a leading role in shaping open standards based on our secure and dynamic XML forms language, XFDL." Dr Boyer played an active role in the working group and is the author of the computation engine featured in XForms 1.0.
PureEdge electronic forms are 100% native XML. XFDL, the original XML e-forms language published as a W3C Note, provides a secure and auditable equivalent to paper transactions. It binds together questions, answers, presentation format, logic, attachments and metadata in a single, signable XML file. To meet the rigorous security and functionality requirements demanded by many government, financial services and insurance organizations, PureEdge enables XML data markup, in any XML vocabulary and conforming to any XML schema, to be deployed with the key security features and rich, dynamic presentation functionality of XFDL.
By transforming XFDL into a host presentation and security layer for XForms, PureEdge will be able to scale up XForms applications to any level of security anytime. With the movement of XForms to recommendation status, PureEdge will move to provide a fully XForms compliant implementation of XML model concepts already inherent in XFDL.
PureEdge Solutions is the leading provider of secure XML e-forms business process automation solutions for governments and regulated industries. PureEdge enables businesses to create, capture, process and archive secure XML e-forms, and integrate them seamlessly with infrastructure and legacy systems. By moving valuable business documents to the Web, PureEdge helps government and business organizations including the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), JPMorgan Chase and the U.S. Department of Defense, to save money and reduce paperwork, ensure their applications are secure, and extend their e-business systems to employees, customers and partners.
