Propel is a php object persistence layer that enables you to:
- generate an xml database scheme from an existing database,
- generate ORM object and peer classes from this scheme and
- then already use these classes as a (part of the) model of your application

The form generation toolkit patForms on the other side comes along with lots of capabilities to create flexible forms, nicely separated into layers by design and easily extensible. patForms itself provides ready-made form validation rules, tools to populate form elements like Select boxes from Datasources and much more.
Plugging these both tools together makes up a powerful combination.Read the rest of this entry
