Re: Feature - xs:base64encode type in the form builder
Case is very simple. Sometimes there is needed to add some graphics to the form. The easiest way for small files is to include them in the xml file. It allows to copy the form definition with all elements.
When we use uri, file has to be added on each orbeon instance and url has to be updated. When you have many files it cause additional work and mistakes.
Such solution is dedicated for less expirienced form developers but in my case rather end users then regular developers. I know that it's possible to add resources via deployment but it's not flexible solution.
