we are evaluating JD-Builder as the main editing system on some of our future sites.
One crucial feature we are looking for is the possibility to add custom field types when editing pages.

An example:
Defining a new element in JD Builder is easy: Just create the directory containing the php-files and the xml-file containing the field definitions.
But some of our data comes for instance from external databases or webservices ecc. for which we usually create a custom field type within Joomla, which create the dropdowns containing the possible options or something like that.
We tried to create a custom field type and add the containing directory to the elements xml:
<fields addfieldpath="/plugins/system/jdbuilder/fields">

But if used in the form xml, for instance like this:
<field type="cities".....

It simply does not show up.

Are we missing something or does JD Builder not support custom field types?

Thanks in advance
