Ticket #2224 (closed feature: fixed)
support GetMap-Request via HTTP-POST
|Reported by:||ingo||Owned by:||ingo|
I want to make GetMap-Requests possible via HTTP-POST. This would allow longer filter and sld in such a request (at the moment the length is limited to the URL length).
To implement this feature, the GetMap-Request is sent through a <form> element with an iframe as target. Each tile is displayed in an own iframe. To support mouse events, I will have to put a <div> over the iframe, because mouse events in an iframe aren't triggered to the outer html.
OpenLayers.WMS will get a config option for the request-method (GET or POST). Depending on the request method of the WMS-layer, the GetMap-request will instantiate Tile.Image or the new class, creating iframes.
