[mapguide-users] WMS Error

Hallo Thomas

- MG Server Version:
- Capabilitiy document attached
- GAIA Version: 2.0.5
- i found no MG-log with the actual GetMap request

Thank you for your answer. Now, i know a little bit more about this problem:

I want to make WMS-server that works with data in the the swiss 
projection (EPSG:21781).
I tried several configurations in Layers:Service Properties and in these 
.../Server/Wms/1.1.1.xml.awd and OgcWmsService.config.awd

The client (eg. GAIA) should present the data in EPSG:21781. We tried
this with UMM Mapserver and Intergraph and it works. But with Mapguide OS
we became only a distordet imgage in EPSG:4326 (WGS84) or the error message

(559) MgInvalidCoordinateSystemException

Now i am very interessted at the proper configuration for my needs.

>Having worked on WMS client and server applications for a few years now, I've found one thing that's become painfully evident: OGC certification only applies to servers, and anybody can write a client and claim it to be WMS compatible.  Because of this, you'll find a numerous instances of "Tolerance and Forgiveness" in our server code, to account for sloppiness in client implementations... in short, not all clients are created equal.
>Since you're using GAIA, I should point out that a considerable amount of our testing was carried out using CarbonTools' toolkit as a client, so we know MG plays well with their technology.  We also played with a version of GAIA a while back, which seemed to be not as reliable as one sample app in their toolkit download, though that may not be the case anymore (I notice there's a GAIA 2 posted on their site.)
