I am a new user of Geoserver. I have created a WFS and also could connect it with the QGIS WFS 2.0.0 Client plugin available now. But as like the default WFS link in that plugin I am not able to make a query in my service. Also the metadata is not coming for my service. Can anyone help me in this regards?

What do I actually have to do to make the stored queries and also to get metadata? Where to start doing that?

Hi Juergen, Thanks for your answer. I could make the stored query. but I am having the following error: java.lang.NullPointerException null -- in the WFS 2.0 QGIS plugin. can you tell me why I am having this type of error? – Md. Asraful Latif Dec 18 '12 at 22:53
I used Firefox Poster to make stored query. and also tried with your bbox query example. – Md. Asraful Latif Dec 18 '12 at 23:03

Yes Juergen, I have the same problem you told. But how can I overcome from this problem? Can you help me? I put the type name in the request url and I got the whole list of my feature. but the problem is I am always having the whole list of my feature. if I decrease my bounding box it also gives me whole features. and also still having same error: java.lang.NullPointerException null in WFS plugin QGIS – Md.
