Create Flash Form system

Thu Nov 11, 2004

In 2004 I created this form system for medical investigations about breathing problems. Looking back at it I see it’s similar to what Macromedia/Adobe later built with their Flex platform, or the XForms standard: I created my own XML syntax to define forms with thousands of inputs, limits, validation, rules and plugins. This same system was used in 5 different investigations for gathering data from thousands of patients.

The whole interface was only 34 kb heavy (unlike Flex applications which tend to be much heavier, even for a “hello world”). The XML was parsed on runtime, so editing XML form definitions was a very quick proccess. 

The project was handed to me by Juan Cardona.
