When CONNECTION missing MS not using "wms_onlineresource"
|Reported by:||Owned by:||dmorissette|
Description (last modified by )
Hello, As per the WMS Client HowTo: Note that if the CONNECTION parameter value is not set the the value of the "wms_onlineresource" metadata will be used. If both CONNECTION and "wms_onlineresource" are set then the "wms_onlineresource" metadata takes precedence. We just tried using this feature without success. We HAD to put the CONNECTION parameter in. I'd also suggest that the default behavior should be reversed: Where both methods are used, the CONNECTION parameter should override the wms_onlineresource (local scope overrides global scope)? Usage scenario: I have a mapfile that uses a lot of remote WMS layers from the same server, but a couple that are from other servers. I could set a "wms_onlineresource" in the WEB object, and override with CONNECTION in those few layers that come from a different server. This fits the common "local overrides global" model. I search Bugzilla for "onlineresource" and didn't find anything pertaining to this, so hopefully it IS a bug, and not a duplicate :) Thanks, J.F.
