Ticket #1359 (new enhancement)
WFS output does not leverage JOIN objects
|Reported by:||sdlime||Owned by:||mapserverbugs|
Posted originally to mapserver-users by Tom. Problem is that WFS query output does not leverage the JOIN objects for a layer. Outputting them is relatively simple. The bigger problem is that anything you output needs to be queryable via a GetFeature request. At present there is nothing in the MapServer query code to leverage joined attributed. Handling one-to-many joins is even more problematic. Not impossible, but not trivial either... I really wish there was some notion of "read-only" attributes- that is attributes you can get at but not query upon. That would allow us to use GML templates as well. *sigh* Steve
