I need to connect to Geoserver, fetch the layer and display it in Geomajas. I have followed the instruction in this link but it doesn't work for me.

The map is just blank. I don't find any compilation error or runtime exceptions in Jetty console, and there is also nothing in geoserver.log on the server. Therefore, I have no clue to figure out what the exact problem is.

For other kinds of layer (from shape file, google map...), it works ok.

  1. Where can I find a working xml file to config such layer?
  2. How can I debug or find out the reason why the map is just blank?

Thanks in advance

Is this for a WMS or a WFS request? Can you show the configuration file you used? – Joachim Van der Auwera Jul 25 '11 at 14:25
I have this problem too, but when my app begins to run on the browser, I get a warning message: An error occurred on the server: Unexpected problem., root cause org/geotools/filter/visitor/FixBBOXFilterVisitor" After I close this warning dialog, nothing is showing on my map. I am using the geotools layer which is trying to fetch a vector layer from Geoserver. Can any body help me, I didn't find any other geotools vector layer sample. What should i do? – hamid sadeghi Mar 9 '12 at 7:25

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

First link is now dead though the root organization still exists. It is for this reason link only answers are generally discouraged. Answers should at least contain a summary of the information present at the link. – Chris W Oct 1 '15 at 0:32
