We are implementing a light-weight web-based metadata editor and editorial workflow that would interact with Fedora via the API-M services. After evaluating the existing content management products (including Apache Lenya - http://lenya.apache.org
), we have decided to DIY. The products are just too chunky for our purposes.
W3C XForms and Sun's JavaServer Faces (JSF - http://myfaces.apache.org
) application framework both appear to provide the underpinnings for the metadata editor.
Any exchanges regarding the above W3C recommendation and application framework would be appreciated. Are they mutually exclusive? Any existing (Java) tools or components that are readily provide DC or Learning Object Metadata editing?
