I have data within a manifold geodatabase, with extension .map and I want GvSIG users to access them.
Let's look at two different ways of doing this:
1. Through Web Feature Services (WFS)
This is done by creating wfs services with Manifold, and although I explained it A couple of months ago, is summarized in:
File / export / html and defining you to create OGC services wfs
So to connect GvSIG to these is only done
Add layer / wfs /
And write in the panel the address of the service, which may be on the intranet, in the case of being my own machine I choose: http: //localhost/wfs.asp
Once the connect button is pressed, if the system finds the data the "next" button is activated or the available tab is chosen.
The "Layers" tab shows what kind of components are available
The "information" tab shows the characteristics of the service such as the server, service version ogc, server type, timeout and maximum attributes that can be downloaded.
These last options are configured in the "options" tab, the more attributes are chosen, the timeout must also be raised.
In case of not allocating enough, the download of data will be limited to this amount; But also the refresh rate will be better.
I have chosen 1000 as a maximum of features and immediately create the layers to the left directly from the Manifold map.
2. Through Web Map Services (WMS)
This is done by creating services Same services With Manifold, but indicating that it also creates wms services:
File / export / html and defining you to create OGC wms services
The cooling time is defined there.
To connect GvSIG to these the same previous process is done but the wms tab.
And we write in the panel the address of the service, which can be on the intranet or internet, in case it is my own machine I choose: http: //localhost/wms.asp
The difference is that this service only shows the data as images but always themed according to the configuration of the map type component of Manifold.
