MapServer does not support multiple namespaces for WFS 1.0.0 server

Reported by: nsavard Owned by: mapserverbugs
Priority: normal Milestone: 5.2 release
Component: WFS Server Version: 5.0
Severity: normal Keywords: OGC, Cite, TEAM, WFS 1.0.0
Cc: tomkralidis

Description

This bug is mainly to keep track of an issue with WFS 1.0.0 OGC CITE tests suite. I sent an email on the CITE list about two tests that failed because MapServer does not support multiple namespaces. These tests are:

wfs:test1.0.0-basic-describefeaturetype-get-4 wfs:test1.0.0-basic-describefeaturetype-get-7

The content of the email I sent is as follow:

Our WFS 1.0.0 server (MapServer) does not support multiple namespaces. We must run the tests suite once for the "cdf" namespace and a second time for the "cgf" one. There are two tests that failed in both namespaces because a validation is made to check that one element of each namespace is present in the same document. These elements are 'cdf:Deletes' ,'cgf:Points' in wfs:test1.0.0-basic-describefeaturetype-get-4 test and 'cgf:Points', 'cdf:Other' in wfs:test1.0.0-basic-describefeaturetype-get-7 test.

In the WFS 1.0.0 conformance tests - executive summary, it is said that if our implementation does not support multiple namespace we need to run the tests suite for each one. Then we have to notify that point in our conformance report.

My question is: Do we just ignore these two failures and send the conformance report in which we add a note to specify that we do not support multiple namespaces?

Norm: if we do what your propose, are/can we still be deemed compliant? If yes, I would say to attach the note to the submission.

Tom: I say let give the CITE guys a few days to answer to this email and will see. Then if no answer comes out we can just attach a note to the submission. What do you think?

Norm,

After looking into this, I believe that you are correct.  The Test Scripts are too limiting and should not fail implementations that do not support multiple namespaces.

Please do submit your test results with the below notice.  As long as the tests are all complete, I can review the test results with the below test failures.

Norm: can we close, then?

comment:9 by nsavard, 14 years ago

Are we going to remember to add this notice when we'll apply for compliance? If yes then we can close.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Norm: I've noted this ticket on http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/wiki/MapServerOGCCITECompliance, so that it is not forgotten. Closing.
