Dear Alex,
sorry, I was not in the office for two weeks, so I could not answer your
Unfortunately we have no uml-model (or something like this) for the
mapbender classes. But most of the classes have no dependencies, except
class_gmlMember depends on class_geomColl. Other classes are working
'standalone' and handle the basic server-side jobs to put the xml-data
from getCapabilities-documents into the database, read the data from the
database and create the javascript-objects for example.
The api-functions are javascripts. The basic funtions to navigate maps and
manipulate the services and their layers you will find in the file
../mapbender/http/javascripts/map.php. The structure of the wms- and
layer-object you will find in the file:
The documentation is one of the next things which have to be done. But our
capacity is limited, so it would be great if someone could start with this
If you have to solve some specific problems, please let me know, I try to
help you.
Best regards
