Forms are important for military operations, and there is often a need to handle forms quickly and share with a large number of users, such as Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) alerts.
XMPP based open standard instant messaging is widely used by military organizations and is a sensible framework for sharing forms. Our new whitepaper [Military Forms using XMPP], published on the Isode website today, looks at the requirements for military forms and how the XEP-0346 “Forms Display and Publishing”(FDP) can be used to provide real time military forms. It looks at how capabilities provided by M-Link support military forms using FDP, and how gateways can enable integration with other services. FDP is supported in the most recent R16.2 release along with FDP Management in M-Link Console.
We have created a military forms demonstration web site using FDP and Isode’s demonstration Web FDP client. To use this demonstration you will require information on the demonstration accounts. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for access to this information.
If you wish to set up an FDP system, this is explained in our FDP Evaluation Guide which will show you how to set up a basic XMPP Form Display and Publishing (FDP) configuration using Isode’s M-Link server, Isode’s Demonstration web client and Isode’s FDP Demonstration Desktop Client.
