The XForms vs. Ruby Debate

I had read Adriaan de Jonge’s post on XForms vs. Ruby on Rails a few months ago, and found it interesting but without much impact on what I was doing with XForms. For me XForms were solving the solution of the creation and management of complicated xml records. Curt Kagel’s article from last week enticed me to go back and read both articles again. While I am interested in exploring Ruby, I’m doubtful that I will be giving up on XForms any time soon. In spite of the difficulties in using XForms I find them very well suited for the kind of data management that I’m doing and they tie in very well with my XML based system. However, I think the two articles are worth a read for anyone looking at either Ruby or XForms.
