Multiple remote servers

Orbeon Forms 4.4 introduced the ability to connect Orbeon Forms to a remote server to publish, unpublish, and transfer form definitions back and forth.

It is now possible to configure more than one server, for example a staging and a production server. You choose to which server to connect when loading the Form Runner Home page.

Multiple remote servers
See the documentation for the details, including the change in configuration. This feature will be available in Orbeon Forms 4.7.
