WMS not shown #53

We are trying to include the mapfx component in a project and have some problems to integrate a WMS layer.

Tested with version:

  • mapfx 1.26.0
  • mapfx-demo: 1.26.0
  • Java: Oracle JRE 1.8.0_131
  • MVN 3.6.0

In the Controller of the mapfx-demo we changed (same WMS as in #25)

-    private WMSParam wmsParamWFPAdminBoundaries = new WMSParam()
-            .setUrl("")
-            .addParam("layers", "geonode:admin_2_gaul_2015");
+    private WMSParam wmsParamWFPAdminBoundaries = new WMSParam().setUrl("").addParam("layers", "OSM-WMS");

and started the demo with mvn clean package && (cd target/mapjfx-demo && ./bin/mapjfx-demo). Selecting the map style 'WMS World Food Programme admin boundaries' results in an empty (gray) map.

Using version 1.21.0 of mapfx the WMS layer is shown.

Is this a bug or a misconfiguration on our side?

Furthermore the configured WMS ("") does not work for me in both mapfx versions.

version 1.22.0 introduced the possibility to set the projection for the map. Although the OpenLayers API for TileWMS shows the projection property, this seems not to work with the WMS source. I am no specialist for different Geo server types like WMS, so I cannot say if the server needs to support this as well.

I'm not sure how to handle this. I could remove the projection attribute from the WMS Tile object and log a warning, when a WMS server is selected, that custom projections are not used for WMS tiles.

I think I will log a warning if the map is initialized with a custom projection and the user switched to WMS that custom projectiosn are not supported for WMS servers.

I do not have the time to dig deeper into this and find out if it possible to have custom projections on WMS servers, and this solution would at least get it working again for the normal projection.
