The Information Centre of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, (TIKE), Finnland, sponsored the development of a WFSPlugin for the free java-based Desktop-GIS OpenJUMP. The functionality was developed in cooperation with our partner lat/lon who did the main implementation coordinated by Intevation GmbH.
This plugin offers the possibility to add OGC Web Feature Services (WFS) into OpenJUMP. The WFS-layers can be used as any other layer within OpenJump. Currently WFS 1.0 and 1.1 are supported.
Besides the usage of the WFSPlugin as an OpenJUMP-Plugin you can use it as a separate, standalone application. This generic WFS-client is very useful to test WFS-servers and create, manipulate and send requests against a WFS-server. The response can be saved into a file for further analysis.
