I didn't use an order toi présente thé list

In WFS, the layer name and attribute name is used to set GML element name.
The layer name and attribute name has to respect XML élément naming.

"metadata" tab.

These informations are in the content of GML element.

The attribute name has to respect the XML element naming.

Thanks for your feed back.

I probably have to add some code to automatically change layer and
attribute naming ?
