Hi Andy,
I had similar problems when I tried to get WFS working a few months ago (November 2006). I haven't actually got MGOS up and running at the moment due to having to replace my pc, but at the time I remember wondering if MGOS was missing one of the required parameters in the WFS request. I didn't get any response on the list at the time though, so I haven't got any suggestions I'm afraid! I will be getting MGOS back up and running asap, so I will try and reproduce the problem then.

I'm having some difficulty getting features via WFS from MapGuide Open
Source and MapGuide Enterprise.  This is with the standard Sheboygan sample
dataset that already has data exposed via WFS.  I also tried this on
data.mapguide.com, but apparently the WFS provider is not installed there.

 I'm having the most success here:


But, if I actually try to GetFeatures, it results in an error:

The coordinate system conversion failed. Unsupported coordinate system code.
The coordinate system conversion failed. Unsupported coordinate system code.
Exception occurred in method
MgCoordinateSystem.ConvertCoordinateSystemCodeToWkt at line 950 in file

I also have an MGE install and a 1.1.0 RC1 install on Linux that both report
the following error no matter what type of WFS request I use:

Invalid argument(s): [1] = " " The string cannot be empty.
Invalid argument(s): [1] = " " The string cannot be empty. Exception
occurred in method MgFeatureSchema.SetName at line 48 in file

Does anybody have any examples of succesfully using the Sheboygan sample
dataset to retrieve features via WMS?

Thank you.
