  1. It's always nice to see how new technologies can be leveraged to acheive something, and this looks like a good example of how to use DXL to alter parts of a DB's design.

    Now for the 'why?'. I've always implemented image resources as a seperate DB, as the image resources design option was introduce in r5 (or was it 4.6) and I've been doing this longer than that. Resources as a DB have always seemed better as you have full control through the ACL and roles to define how and who manipulates the resources. Also, the resources can be plain text or binary depending on your need.

    Anyone know if there are performance implications to this approach versus image resources? If you set the view to only recalculate periodically, I'm not sure there is one.
