This paper presents an approach for dynamically generating and processing user input form variants from metadata stored in a database. Many web-based applications utilize a series of similar looking input forms as a basis for capturing information from users, such as for surveys, cataloging, etc. Typical approaches for form generation utilize static HTML(More)
