[Mapbender-users] problem with sld editor and geoserver

Hi Karim,

the sld parser, was done the same way the older versions of the wms
parsing were. The first and presumably not too complicated issue to
overcome is namespace support. The next issue is the supported sld
features problem. Since it was originally done for mapserver, it
covers basically mapserver sld functionality and only geoserver sld
where it overlaps. Although we're talking OGC standards (in my
experience) the SLD implementation varies from WMS to WMS in some
points, which can make parsing an sld pretty complicated (e.g. see an
example for that on the discussion page of the SLD integration

I currently checking whether the namespace issue is easy to fix and
will come back with an answer later ...

Cheers, Michael
