Abstract

Disclosed is a method and system for the generation of a webform application. Web applications containing forms have many components that need to be synchronized in order for the application to work properly: The definition of the form (HTML), a program (CGI-bin or a servlet) to process the form, a table in a database to store the contents of the form. This disclosure provides a method and a system to generate all these components based on one file (e.g. in XML format). As a result, less work in building the solution is required and the components are always synchronized.
