I am creating a data editing application in OpenLayers where the user will need to be able to edit the attributes of features (which are stored on a GeoServer installation). I have seen documentation for editing features in a WFS layer, but I haven't found anything detailing how to edit the attributes of a feature in a WMS layer. Is this feasible to do using a WMS layer?
I am currently retrieving data from GeoServer using the GetFeatureInfo request. I would like to load this data into a div, modify it, then save it back to the server. I haven't seen any examples of OpenLayers maps doing this, but I feel like it should involve a simple POST request to the server.
