Hi Jackie,

The coordinate system catalog class does not have a static (thread safe) member to retain the path to the coordinate system libraries.  Ideally, it probably should.  But then we have to figure out where to call the method that initializes the static member.  Having the settings in serverconfig/webconfig.ini with initialization taking place in the server startup loop, agent initialization, and in InitializeWebTier should resolve this for MapGuide.

But who else is using CS-Map?  Will catalog initialization changes affect them?

It is a good idea but it sounds like a 2.3 RFC item to me.

Hi Trevor,

There was some talk back about whether it was possible to make the Mentor
dictionary path a configuration option. Wouldn't that be a more flexible
approach (esp. if you want side-by-side installs of different MG versions)
over environment variables? Oh and we can finally get rid of the reboot
requirement on the windows installer as a result.

Ticket in question: http://trac.osgeo.org/mapguide/ticket/917
