XMLForm Performance Metrics

Accurate performance metrics for web applications is a very complex matter.
The following JMeter test suite is by no means a normative reference, but it
gives an idea of the XMLForm performance. It walks through the Feedback
Wizard demo and touches on most aspects of a real world web application:
processing request parameters, data validation, workflow logic and page
rendering.
When run with 10 concurrent threads on a 1GHz Athlon CPU / 640MB RAM,
against JBoss 2.4/Tomcat 4.0/JDK 1.4 hosted on the same box, it yields the
following numbers:
Without server side XSLT transformation, the average page response time is
100ms.
With server side XSLT transformation, the average page response time is
250ms.... read more

The total size of the toolkit is still around 500K including dependency libraries and will hopefully stay that low longer.

What's in XMLForm 1.1? Call for discussion.

XMLForm has been stable for over 6 moths running and it has acquired a solid user base.
It is time to start work on the next version.
Primary goal will be compliance with the XForms CR syntax.
A topic which calls for a debate is what, if any, other XForms features in addition to form controls should be added to XMLForm without sacrificing performance. Triggers, computations and validation are possible candidates. What do you think?... read more
