This is how new services and layers are added to the Mapbender instance of the Geoportal-RLP (http://www.geoportal.rlp.de). Most of the code of that solution has already merged into core and is currently available for testing as 2.4.1 rc1 

thanks for your answer. Yes, I thought about using WMC, but it's not really working. I have to generate WMC-Documents and write them into the Mapbender database. That's not good, but I can do it, if it is the only possibility. Another problem I have is, that if I initiate Mapbender with http://.../frames/login.php?name=...&password=...&mb_user_myGui=...&wmc_id=... nothing happens. I get a blank map-window. No WMS services are added. No error message. But it's the same user and the same gui I created the WMC document with. I only deleted the WMS services from the gui (because I want to add them with the WMC document, of course).

I have no idea, why that is not working. Are you sure, there is no possibility to pass a WMS-URL to Mapbender with the login?

Does anybody have a good idea, why the WMC-stuff isn't working (Mapbender v2.4) or has another idea, how it could be done.
