#5384 closed defect (fixed)

WFS: Last field not returned is first field value is null

Reported by: jpalmer Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.10.2
Component: default Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: WFS GML

It seems the ogr driver does not output the last field from the service if the field value is null for the first record.

I can provide example servers requests if required.

Yes, that may be possible in the degenerated case where the feature schema obtained with a DescribeFeatureType request is too complex to be understood by the OGR GML driver. Then the WFS driver will request the first feature to try deducing a schema. And the GML driver will ignore a null field when building the schema. Well, that's just a guess of what my happen in your case. Perhaps you can provide indeed an example server.

ogrinfo -so WFS:"" v:x1695

encumbrancees field gets missed. I've also the DescribeFeatureType response is:

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:gml="" xmlns:v="" elementFormDefault="qualified" targetNamespace="">
<xsd:import namespace="" schemaLocation=""/>
<xsd:complexType name="x1695Type">

Even I think your assumption must be correct because if you add "&CQL_FILTER=id=14" onto the end of the test URL, then the encumbrancees field shows up in ogrinfo

Fixed in trunk (r26940) and branches/1.10 (r26941) : "GML: recognize xsd:boolean in XSD parsing and map it to String (#5384)"

Thanks Even!!

Tested and now working.

As a side note is there anyway to stop ogrinfo form issuing a full GETFEATURE request (resultType=hit requests are ok)? This layer is very large and it takes a long time to fetch all of the data.

ogrinfo --debug ON -ro -so WFS:"" v:x1695

At the moment I add "?MAXFEATURES=1" onto the end of the URL to get it to return a fast result, but that's not ideal. Is it issuing this GETFEATURE request because it's a geometry less table, but the driver still wants to determine the geometry type?

Cheers Jeremy

comment:6 by Even Rouault, 10 years ago

The full scan is needed to retrieve the spatial extent of the layer, which is an information displayed by ogrinfo (there's a long standing discussion on whether we should display a reliable information, which needs the full scan, or whether we should just use the extent reported by GetCapabilities that may be approximate)

Oh, I realize you mention it is a geomtry less table. Hum, well perhaps an optimization could be made in that case, but that's rather a marginal use case of WFS.
