Subject [jira] [Created] (PIVOT-840) No instructions on how to use BXML in an application

No instructions on how to use BXML in an application

                 Key: PIVOT-840
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-840
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: demos
    Affects Versions: 2.0.1
         Environment: All Environments
            Reporter: Robert Brown III

All demos and documentation emphasize the use of BXML for specifying the user interface. All
demos are implemented as applets where the system is apparently able to "find" the BXML file
that it needs to create the UI.

Unfortunately, when anyone attempts to use BXML in an actual desktop application, using the
proper "ScriptApplication" class and setting the "src" property, the application keeps generating
an error saying that it "cannot find" the BXML file.

There are no instructions anywhere in the documentation about deploying a BXML file with a
Pivot application. There is nothing saying where the file should be, how to get the ScriptApplication
to find it, or any demos showing how to deploy a desktop application in general. There are
no real instructions even for deploying  BXML- based Applets!

This is a "show- stopper" making Pivot's BXML mechanism unusable for most applications, in
particular desktops. If people are to use BXML for most applications, some deployment instructions
are seriously needed...
