Thanks for your reply
I have installed GeoJSOn on my Geoserver. The idea would be effectively to
pick up the bbox value available in the
gml:boundedBy\gml:Box\gml:coordinates tag from the XML obtained with the WFS
request using the same filter.
I tried using the outputformat=JSON
but i don't know what should be my syntax at openlayers JS code in order to
use this extent to zoom to.
Would you have any example?
Thanks for your help
Does it mean that this kind of infos (WMS extent) can only be obtained by
WFS, there is no other way?
