can anyone tell me by chance, how to transform a shape file into a WMS and then load it into mapbender?

kann mir zufällig jemand sagen, wie man eine Shape-Datei in ein WMS bekommt, um diesen dann ins Mapbender zu laden?

WMS is not a data format but a webservice specification for map images. If you want to publish a shape file as a WMS, you might use something like geoserver (http://geoserver.org/) and then visualise it with mapbender (http://www.mapbender.org/WMS).
