How to set up a deegree 3 WMS with Eclipse

1. Installation

First of all, download the deegree Web Map Service (WMS). Now you have to copy the wms folder to your workspace (e.g. $/home/your-account/workspace/your-wms$).

The folder contents should be:

directory

Content

./WEB-INF

Required by Tomcat, containing all libraries,
configuration- and data-files

./WEB-INF/classes

WMS configuration files

./WEB-INF/conf

WMS configuration files

./WEB-INF/data

Example datasets

./WEB-INF/libs

Librarys

./WEB-INF/web.xml

./index.html

2. Configure Tomcat

Now go to $.../your-tomcat-directory/conf/Catalina/localhost$ and create a new XML-file and write the following in it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context antiResourceLocking="false" docBase="/home/your-account/workspace/your-wms/" />

Now you can start your Tomcat.

3. Starting Eclipse

To work on your Projekt in Eclipse, you first have to open Eclipse ;-).

==> "File" ==> "New" ==> "Project..."

A wizard opens. Select

==> "General" ==> "Project" ==> "Next"

In the new window deselect "default location" and enter the path of your wms (e.g. $/home/your-account/workspace/your-wms$).
Hit "Finish" and you're done!

The folder should now be displayed in your "Package Explorer".

4. Configure the WMS

A more detailed explanation of deegree3 WMS configuration is available in the deegree3/WMSConfiguration.

4.1. Import Data

To get your data into the WMS, copy the files into $/WEB-INF/data$.

There are two types of implementing your data, the "Dynamic Layer" and the "Static Layer".

To configure this open up the "wms_configuration.xml" stored in $/WEB-INF/conf/wms$.

4.1.1. Dynamic Layer

The Dynamic Layer automatically loads the data you put in the $/data$ directory.

<wms:UnrequestableLayer>
  <wms:Title>Root Layer</wms:Title>
  <wms:CRS>EPSG:"your-EPSG"</wms:CRS>

  <wms:DynamicLayer>
    <wms:ShapefileDirectory>../../data</wms:ShapefileDirectory>
  </wms:DynamicLayer>

  </wms:UnrequestableLayer>
</wms:ServiceConfiguration>

4.1.2. Static Layer

With the Static Layer you have to specify every single layer in your "wms_configuration.xml".

<wms:UnrequestableLayer>
  <wms:Title>Root Layer</wms:Title>
  <wms:CRS>EPSG:"your-EPSG"</wms:CRS>

  <!-- Shapefile -->
  <RequestableLayer>
    <Name>datasource-filename</Name>
    <Title>your-layer-title</Title>
    <ds:ShapefileDataSource>
      <ds:File>../../data/your-data.shp</ds:File>
    </ds:ShapefileDataSource>
    <DirectStyle>
      <File>../../data/your-style.xml</File>
    </DirectStyle>
  </RequestableLayer>

  <!-- Shapefile with Dimension (Time, Elevation) -->
  <RequestableLayer>
    <Name>datasource-filename</Name>
    <Title>your-layer-title</Title>
    <Dimension isTime="true">
      <Property>TIME</Property>
      <DefaultValue>2000-01-01T00:00:00Z</DefaultValue>
      <MultipleValues>true</MultipleValues>
      <NearestValue>true</NearestValue>
      <Current>true</Current>
      <Extent>2000-01-01T00:00:00Z/2000-01-01T00:01:00Z/PT5S</Extent>
    </Dimension>
    <ds:ShapefileDataSource>
      <ds:File>../../data/your-dimension-file.shp</ds:File>
    </ds:ShapefileDataSource>
    <DirectStyle>
      <File>../../data/your-style.xml</File>
    </DirectStyle>
  </RequestableLayer>

  <!-- Rasterdata -->
  <RequestableLayer>
    <Name>datasource-filename</Name>
    <Title>your-layer-title</Title>
    <ds:RasterDataSource crs="EPSG:"your-EPSG"">
      <ds:RasterFile fileType="tif">../../data/your-raster.tif</ds:RasterFile>
    </ds:RasterDataSource>
    <DirectStyle>
      <File>../../data/your-style.xml</File>
    </DirectStyle>
  </RequestableLayer>

  </wms:UnrequestableLayer>
</wms:ServiceConfiguration>
