I tested insert/update/delete for the OGR provider on SHP files, on
Windows. I did not test it for any other data source.
One thing you can do is run mapguide from the command line in
interactive mode and look for any error messages printed by the

Subject: Re: [mapguide-users] RE: OGR Provider
i've compiled and tested ogr provider - for postgis and oracle spatial
support - in linux using gdal 1.4.0.
as far as i can tell there is no insert/update/delete capabilities.
i have also tested ogr provider and fdopostgis in winXP and those
capabilities do not seem to be present there, either.
Mateusz, is this a correct evaluation of fdopostgis?
also, will fdopostgis be made available for linux?
i took a look at the source code and it seems to be windows-specific
(mind you, my dev strengths are not c/c++).
perhaps i've missed something somewhere along the line - is there an fdo
provider that has more than read-only capabilities for postgis?
can someone confirm that this is actually the case?
are there plans to add insert/update/delete capabilities to the postgis
i'd love to help out (or be a guinea pig), in any manner i can, as this
would be incredibly useful for me and, from the sounds of it, for others
