#2970 closed defect (fixed)

saveMap() incorrectly writes metadata entries in VALIDATION block

Reported by: dmorissette Owned by: dmorissette
Priority: normal Milestone: 5.4 release
Component: MapServer C Library Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: sdlime


Reported by Murty Maganti on mapserver-users:

When I call, I see a new tag ‘VALIDATION’ in layer section 
of map file. It just contains metadata of layer. There is no mention of 
this item in the online documentation. What is this item ‘VALIDATION’? 
Is it replacement of METADATA or METADATA will  continue to be there.

It turns out that there is a typo in the writeWeb() and writeLayer() functions (mapfile.c) and as a result they write the metadata hashtable contents in the VALIDATION block.

Simple fix, but we need a ticket since that problem is present in both trunk and 5.4
