Subject: Orbeon form builder pages running outside orb


Hi, I am new to the orbeon and doing a research on that. I created a page using the form builder and got the XHTML code through the Edit Source option. Then i pasted the code in my app as a jsp page and added the filter mapping in web.xml as per the orbeon documentation.I also added the orbeon filter jar to the WEB-INF\lib directory. When i try to run the jsp from the browser, it displays a blank page. It renders the page if i remove all the form rendered tags (Ex : fr:view,fr:grid etc.) from the jsp. It also displays an error with description as something like $form-resources undeclared variable. So i replaced the $form-resources\details... with the Xforms notation of referring the xml instance (instance('name')\data....). It was rendering the page but the data is not getting submitted . Its because the form instance declaration, bindings inside the model needs to be in a order. Is there a way we can run the form builder generated page outside the orbeon war with the XHTML code remains unchanged?. The next one is unable to have labels outside the component .I have a requirement which needs the label to be in one TD and component in other TD, enclosed in TR. If i move the label out of the component tags, the label is not getting displayed.Anyone knows how to seprate the labels from components?. Can we have the formatting tags like <xhtml:table><xhtml:tr><xhtml:td>...etc generated in form builder , as its generating the form runner specifc tags fr:view,fr:grid? Can we have the xpath expressions in a separate xml file referred by the XForms group tag? Thanks, Suvedhan.J
