Guidance about InfoPath deployment

Can you also provide guidance about how to use InfoPath especially about how to use this in a controlled environment with deployment from dev to test to acceptance and finally to production...

Thanks,

Joris,

I agree with your suggestion 110% !!!  My belief is that InfoPath / Forms Server is a major pain point when developing for the SharePoint platform.  So much so that I often recommend avoiding the use of server-based InfoPath forms as part of a solution package.

It would be really helpful to hear more guidance around packaging and deployment of forms of all kinds (especially trusted forms).  Another area that has been frustrating related to InfoPath in particular is source control.  At first glance I found it confusing to locate the class files and related project artifacts that get created inside VSTA.

Regards,

Saul
