jBPM Form Builder project follow-up of the week

As new functionalities go, the Form Builder now has the following new features:

- REST API for forms and ui components
- Copy / Cut / Paste functionalities, both with keyboard shortcuts and menu options

  1. Hey Mark; wanted to comment and say this is great that it is moving along.

    You will see at the top right there are already field buttons on the UI.

    I think this would give a much richer experience, and those projects already are open sourced. Thoughts?
