3.3.1 Introduction to the use case

After more than 5 years of ongoing development, the deegree project is the most extensive implementation of OGC/ISO standards in the field of Free Software. deegree evolved from the project JaGo and has been published under the terms of the Lesser GNU Public License (L-GPL) of the Free Software Foundation. Widespread improvements of the architecture, enhancements of the object model and the support of Java 5 guided to deegree to the second major release.

In deegree2, there are OGC WebServices for Web Map Service (WMS) 1.1.1, Web Feature Service (WFS) 1.1.0, Web Coverage Service (WCS) 1.0.0 and Catalogue Service Web-Profile (CSW) 2.0.0 available. WMS and WCS are the official reference implementations of the Open Geospatial Consortium; WFS and CSW are fully transactional. CSW supports ISO19115/ISO19119 Application Profile and DE-Profile 1.0.1.

Furthermore, there are implementations of the OGC pre-standards of Sensor Observation Service (SOS), Web Terrain Service / Web Perspective and View Service (WTS/WPVS) as well as Web Processing Service (WPS). The security package contains a user and rights management system, owsProxy as a security facade of OGC Web Services and Web Authentication (WAS) and Web Security Service (WSS) definied in Spatial Data Infrastructure of NRW.

deegree iGeoPortal standard and portlet edition are the browser-based clients for the mentioned OGC WebServices. deeJUMP provides a SDI-enabled Desktop-GIS.

Besides the improvements of the architecture and the development process (e.g. automatic builds) the following are also important changes for users:

• Simplified installation and configuration
• Tool-based configuration (for WFS and WCS)
• Support of GML 3.1 with a complex Feature Model and 3D-geometries
• Support of PostGIS 1.0 and Oracle spatial/locator (9i/10g)
• Advanced capabilities for object-relational mappings in the WFS
• Multiple data sources for WMS layers
• Dynamic rendering rules within SLD
• High-quality and large-size print outputs through Web Map Print Service (WMPS)

3.3.2 Description of the use case

This example  is going to describe how to publish a shapefile with deegree, by describing the installation of the program and the packages needed.

3.3.3 Pointer from parts of the use case to the tutorial sections

3.3.4 Example used to show the use case

This particular use case is going to be illustrated using the example of the borders of the world. This is a shapefile document that has been modified to be correctly be served by a degree server.
