Where can I follow the development being made related to the problem? I am working on a set of forms (that I am not sure I can upload, I will need to ask), some of which are pretty long (the longest has ~7000 questions: many of which are skipped depending on choices made early in the form) and cannot be helped with csv approach. Now, the user requirement has proposed changes to UI which I can only achieve by merging the forms together, which will lead to utter chaos in form load times. Earlier, the longer forms were to be used very sparingly, so longer load times were not much of an issue.
The enumerators will be given pretty basic devices with 1 GB RAM only which compounds the woes.
If I can see the approach being taken towards solving the problem, maybe me and my team can add to that and contribute. The way I see it: the form xml is read entirely at form load time and takes all of the time. Since the xml is created after due verification of the form xls, can it be made optional (for long forms) to load the xml piecemeal, maybe at the cost of not being able to jump around the form sections.
Any pointers will be much appreciated.
