Ticket #545 (closed enhancement: fixed)
[MapServer-OGR] Use C API in mapogr.cpp
|Reported by:||dmorissette||Owned by:||dmorissette|
Description (last modified by dmorissette) (diff)
In an email to mapserver-users, Frank suggested that we convert mapogr.cpp to use the OGR C API to facilitate upgrades of OGR without recompiling MapServer. That could be a good idea for when we have time. I'm filing this enhancement bug so that we don't forget. Frank wrote: ------- This is something I would dearly like to fix in MapServers' windows build structure, but to accomplish it (practically speaking) we almost need to rewrite the mapogr.cpp module to use the OGR C API and to reexamine the use of some of the style related definitions in mapogr.cpp. The use of static OGR libraries in MapServer causes me no end of headaches. -------
