Configurations resources are an alternative to programmatically use configuration elements.
It is designed to be more flexible and reliable:
- You can create / delete configuration resources programmatically (It is not possible to do so with plain configuration elements).
- You can set / delete a configuration resource attribute
- You can get all the attributes of a configuration resource element
- Simultaneous write to configuration resource elements does not loose attributes (This is an issue with the configuration elements that were designed to be manual / design time only)
The goal is flexibility / reliability and requires running a workflow when getting / setting attributes. Do not expect speed - as such if you need to fill an array of 100.000 elements in a configuration put it in a single array attribute and not in 100.000 attributes.
You can download it from Flowgrab.
