[OSGeo-Discuss] API-level WFS-Client implementations

 The GeoTools documentation is not extensive - as we treat WFS like any other "datastore". 

- http://docs.geotools.org/latest/userguide/library/data/wfs.html
- http://docs.geotools.org/latest/userguide/library/data/wfs-ng.html

The only limitation is that WFS-T support is only provided for WFS 1.0 (and you need to start a transaction so we have a place to store the Transaction request as it is constructed). You can proceed to work with your uncommitted transaction locally (simulating a database transaction by processing in your local changes with the live results coming back from the WFS). This is handy if you want to do some QA prior it to hitting transaction.commit() and submitting your request to the WFS.

The module is considered unsupported as there is no funded developer working on it; even though it is a popular feature support for OGC standards is not considered sexy enough to attract money or volunteers.
