The Form Library provides developers with tools for accessing and manipulating XFDL forms as structured data types. For instance, methods in the Form Library will provide your applications with a means for reading and writing forms, retrieving information contained in form elements or assigning information to the elements of a form.
The FCI Library of methods allows you to create an extension structure that contains one or more packages of your custom functions.
Once you have set up the framework for your custom functions you can use Java system methods, Form Library methods or even other FCI methods to implement the details of each function.
Relation between the form library and the custom FCI.
