** Due to poor repsonses for the "competition format" we are re-posting this job as a normal fixed price project **

We require a HTML5 / JavaScript implementation of an existing form rendering and scripting framework.  The current framework uses Delphi, Pascal Script, and XML and we need this replaced with only HTML and JavaScript.

The deliverable will be a working prototype tested against a working form that we will provide.

A typical real world application where we use this module is taking a paper based application form (like an application for life insurance) and converting that to an electronic form with business logic that can execute and thus validate the data on the form. Our current implementation of this module, is a Delphi WIN32 application, capable of reading a properly defined XML form definition and executing embedded pascal script with the business logic.
The aim of this project is to find the most generic, re-usable solution that can be used within a browser, and therefore even ported to mobile devices or tablets. So the UI should be simple HTML and the business logic should be coded in JavaScript.  Building the UI should also happen by reading the XML definition and generating the HTML from it either simply processing the XML as a DOM tree or perhaps using XSLT. To "understand" the existing samples, it would be beneficial for candidates to have some Pascal experience, but it really is not that important.

So if you are fluent in the above technologies AND if understand the requirement at a high level, please apply.

We will only consider applications including a short description (in your own words) of how you interpret the requirements / and suggest the approach you will take.

Skills: rendering, dom, json
