I just installed mapserver 5.4.0-beta1. In mapscript, I'm now not
unable to use oLayer->set("connectiontype", MS_WMS). I get an error
saying "use setConnectionType()" instead.
That's what I did, but it doesn't work with MS_WMS. My collegue
Julien looked deeper in the code and found out in maplayer.c, in the
msInitializeVirtualTable, when we use MS_WMS it returns MS_FAILURE.
So I guess it's no longer possible to set connectiontype to wms in
mapscript. Is there a new way of doing this ?
Also, why would a normal mapfile still accept the wms CONNECTIONTYPE
? I tried to save my map object as a mapfile and only added
CONNECTIONTYPE wms and it worked.
Any hint ?
