     23== Overview ==
     25Simple .NET wrapper over existing managed MapGuide API. Enables easier access to resources and repositories, also including some additional functionality. Includes samples for building and consuming web services.
     27== Motivation ==
     29Present managed wrapper doesn't help much when it comes to accessing MG's resources and repositories - up to the point where developers need to parse XML files manually, since there's no way of managed serialization/deserialization of underlying unmanaged types. Except for that, proposed managed API (dubbed "MgServerExtensions") offers some additional functionaliy not originally found within MG API: tile cache management, creating PDF documents from ready-made templates, samples of exposing and consuming custom web services, etc.
     31== Proposed Solution ==
     33This not a solution targeting any specific segment of MG, although it may become one. It's rather both pointer and helper for .NET developers developing custom solutions for server apps based on MG (using ASP.NET or AJAX.NET). MgServerExtensions may serve as a separate component to MG, similar to MGE's "Web Server Extensions". Installer part still TBD, but this is a lesser problem.
     35== Implications ==
     37There are no backwards compatibility issues.
     39== Test Plan ==

     42- MGE 2008 - passed
     43- MG Open Source - TBD
     46- Windows (IIS, .NET) - passed
     47- Linux (Apache, Mono) - TBD
     50- ASP.NET - passed
     51- PHP - passed
