THE EVOLUTION OF COMFACT FORMS
The Comfact Forms project started in 1998 as a research project within a European Union Fifth Framework Research and Development program, called IQML - (Intelligent Questionnaire Markup Language). The program aimed to find a solution for efficient data collection.
One result of this research was the development of an XML structure to represent "intelligent" questionnaires. When it was subsequently accepted by the EU as a recommended solution for data collection, it was called XML4DR: XML for Data Reporting. XML4DR is a very central part of Comfact Forms. With this structure, intelligent forms are created and used. After the research project ended in 2002, the development of Comfact Forms continued.
Functions and features are developed as new requirements are discovered.
