Use Forms (Web) Project Types when you need user interaction immediately in a web form. A Forms (Web) project is ideal for a project that interacts with a single user in a web form. Forms (Web) projects are linear, user interface-based processes.
In Symantec Workflow, 7.1 SP1 and earlier, Workflow provided a Forms (Windows) Project Type. This Project Type was deprecated in Symantec Workflow 7.1 SP2. If you used a previous version of Symantec Workflow and created Forms (Windows) projects, those existing projects still function.
The Workflow and Forms (Web) Project Types use forms. In a Workflow project, the user is invited to the form by a task. In a Forms (Web) project, the user actively opens the form, usually through a link.
You can use a Forms (Web) project to produce the following forms: Web forms, Cisco Phone forms, and Blackberry forms. You can quickly create the forms that have the graphics and the themes that let a user enter information or make a decision about information. When you use a Forms (Web) project that uses web forms, you can create the ASPX applications that run on Microsoft IIS.
Forms (Web) projects are ideal for web surveys and statistical display, such as a Dashboard. They are also ideal for non-task-based management applications, such as a conference room reservation application.
You can use a Forms (Web) project to create applications for mobile devices. You create mobile-enabled forms in the same way that you create regular web forms, with some limitations on form controls and display. Workflow-type projects can also be set to use mobile forms.
You can set your Forms (Web) project to use mobile forms in the Publishing tab of your project.
The settings for Forms (Web) projects are as follows:
Use the web setting.
Use this setting if your project displays forms for full web displays only.
Use this setting if your project displays forms for mobile web displays only.
Use this setting if your project can display in either full web displays or mobile web display. The MobileAndWeb setting displays your web forms normally unless they are accessed from a mobile device. The mobile display may make some form controls unusable. Symantec recommends that you thoroughly test the web forms projects that use the MobileAndWeb setting.
