Indeed, what is the problem? Exactly what goes wrong? – whuber Jul 25 '12 at 15:32

Your projections are wrong.


says that you want a map in lat/lon (epsg:4326) while your bounding box says that you want a map in meters (? epsg:900913?). GeoServer has given you exactly what you asked for - a very small map somewhere in the lower left corner (-180,-90 180,90) of the larger image requested.
