[MS4W-Users] MapServer Oracle Spatial support

We have  tested ms4w_3.0_beta11.zip and oracle 10G, but we have 
problems drawing 3D data (points, lines and 2D areas workes fine).

Image handling error. Failed to draw layer named '
msDrawShape(): General error message. Only polygon shapes can be drawn 
using a POLYGON layer definition

Anyone else with this problem?

Mest regards,

I cannot duplicate your problem yet, but I do have some thoughts on 
issue that I would like to share with you:

- from your OracleSpatial error message, I can tell that you are 
to access your Oracle data through MapServer's native OracleSpatial 
support (your layer probably contains 'CONNECTIONTYPE oraclespatial')
- therefore the important step to follow is Step#2 in the README link 
that you referenced (replacing the libmap.dll)
- once you replace that libmap.dll, you can test if your MapServer 
install now supports OracleSpatial as an input, by going to the 
commandline, executing setenv.bat, and then executing 'mapserv -v'.  
the resulting string contains 'INPUT=ORACLESPATIAL" then your 
can accept OracleSpatial input
- I will add that little test to the MS4W README (I've filed a ticket 
for that: http://bugzilla.maptools.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2204)
- if I were you I would also extract the latest MS4W 3.0 on another 
machine and test there also (install an Oracle client, make sure you 
configure the client as a listener, then try the MS4W tests)
- if that same problem happens on another machine with a fresh MS4W 
I bet there is a problem, and you could file a ticket with some test 
scripts at the link above

Thanks for using MS4W to share your spatial data.
