[mapguide-users] MapGuide Open Source Web Studio

A typical FeatureSourceDefintion (for SDF) that is created by Studio looks like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
<FeatureSource xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="FeatureSource-1.0.0.xsd">
If you replace the %MG_DATA_FILE_PATH% with a physical path to the file on the servers file system you can effectively "reference" data and not worry about uploading it. A similar technique can be used for SHP files, Raster files, etc.

	The preview of the web layout is from the sample Sheboygan package.   
	Web Studio can load web layouts using the ajax viewer, you just can't  
	create or edit them yet. 

	I had originally thought that we would only be supporting data that  
	was already on the server.  The data that is stored on the server is  
	reported through the MapAgent using the EnumerateResourceData  
	operation.  The XML returned from this lists the data file or files  
	that are part of the resource.  There doesn't seem to be a way to  
	create the XML and put it into the server.  Thus it doesn't seem  
	possible to support creating a feature source that refers to data  
	already on the server.  I could be wrong about this, though.
