[WMS/WFS] HOWTO updates about "ows_*" metadata now support
|Reported by:||dmorissette||Owned by:||jmckenna@…|
The WMS/WFS client and server howto need to be updated to reflect the changes made in bug 568 to support "ows_*" metadata names in addition to the default "wms_*" or "wfs_*" names. I think it would be enough to have a paragraph in each document explaining that (in the case of WMS for instance) MapServer tries the "wms_*" metadata first, and if not found it tries the corresponding "ows_*" name. Using this reduces the amount of duplication in mapfiles that support multiple OGC interfaces since "ows_*" metadata can be used almost everywhere for common metadata items shared by multiple OGC interfaces. This is true for the WCS as well, but does not apply to WMS context documents at the moment.
