Not sure what mappings you're talking about. I just want to
know how can I get some data from somewhere (it may be a
file, RDBMS or other external source) and display it in a form,
then edit this data etc. Formlib default forms (EditForm, AddForm)
assume that it works with content objects and I just want to call
SQLScript to get data for my form and to commit it back to RDBMS.
Not so difficult but there are no docs and no demos for this with
formlib. Thats why  I'd like to know how to do such things
with z3c.form.
