New feature request from Brad Hards on the email list:
After some work on CITE, I'm unhappy with the effort required to do a local
test (since you have to set up the test data). So I was going to suggest that
we modify the "normal" release build to include a working test environment
such that tests will pass against a routine build without needing to modify
the data directory.
Distributing the CITE data is not a problem - we just need to include the OSGeo README with SOFTWARE LICENSE. There is an example here.
On the technical side:
we need a databased backed store in order to do the joins required.
we need to be able to "reload" the data (as a WFS-T failure will leave the data tables modified)
Put this together and we have:
Wonder if we could make an CITE store page backed by hsql with a reset button to reload the dataset.
