A large portion of Internet advances owes the human-computer interaction and data exchange via web forms. Current complex Internet applications are demanding more advanced features that are not covered by traditional forms. New technologies such as Semantic Web and XForms are responses to today’s business requirements and expectation. In this paper the possible potential of combining XForms with Semantic Web technology are explored and an integration model for enterprise solutions is presented. The new model is supposed to bridge the gap between desktops as the nodes of global business networks representing the individuals and the involved web business processes. The paper shows that combining Semantic Web concepts with XForms can provide elegant holistic solutions for lifetime data consistency, integration of personal services, and checking of data validity.
