Quick Start (Base64): Writing a resource using the web service API

The following C# code example writes a resource called loan.xdp in the repository. The resource is added to the /Applications/FormsApplication/1.0/FormsFolder location. (See Writing Resources.)

    * Ensure that you create a .NET client assembly that uses  
    * base64 encoding. This is required to populate a BLOB  
    * object with data or retrieve data from a BLOB object. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using Base64 Encoding"  
    * in Programming with LiveCycle
