Interlis Support should be available in OSGeo4W

Reported by: neumann Owned by: warmerdam

Interlis support is very important in Switzerland.

Since more and more users in Switzerland are using OSGeo software (majority on Windows) it would be great if there could be an optional "gdal-interlis" package that would enable interlis support.

I'm willing to take this on with some support from you and/or Pirmin who I have added as a cc.

I see xerces is already a dependency of GDAL and that ogrinfo --formats already reports the interlis 1 and 2 packages. So I'm guessing we are missing the ili2c.jar file. I am guessing the the proposed gdal-interlis package would just include that, and also a dependency on the jvm?

I see the ili2c.jar pointer on the OGR Interlis driver page is no longer working. Can someone point me to the appropriate version of the file? I have one that is 1874387 bytes long in the GDAL 1.4 source tree I can use if it is current.

This might be also an QGIS issue - sort of. QGIS uses GDAL 1.6 and GDAL 1.6 apparently doesn't have Interlis support.

Replying to jef:

The OSGeo4W GDAL 1.6 package, that is. Interlis seems to work fine with the GDAL 1.5 package as far as I can tell - not that that is far.

Thanks for helping on this!

Here is the correct link for ili2c.jar:

Jürgen Fischer told me that you want to move to gdal1.7 as default soon? Is that true? In that case we could wait for that.

But if ili2c.jar is the only thing we are missing than gdal-interlis would be independent of the version anyway.

The installer would have to make sure that ili2c.jar could be found in the CLASSPATH ?

I have rebuilt and uploaded gdal16 1.6.3-4 which includes Interlis support in OGR.

This doesn't address the need for ili2c or jvm in a separate package, but is the first step.

very good.

I can confirm that Interlis works now with gdal 1.6.3-4. I tested with QGIS and Marco Hugentoblers Interlis python plugin. I had the ili2c.jar already on my machine (at multiple places from other software, such as FME or the Interlis checker).

Now the remaining issue is ili2c.jar and the JVM - what would be the proper place for ili2c.jar? %OSGeo4WRoot%\bin ?
