comment Geoserver: WMS layer is shifted at certain zoom scales in openlayers
Weird: if I use leaflet, everything is ok. Baffling. Confused :)

But anyway, seems like a good thing to verify, so I will try that.

comment Geoserver: WMS layer is shifted at certain zoom scales in openlayers
If I zoom in/out, the backdrop does not jump around, openlayers animates the zooming, and then fills in the retrieved tiles. The google/osm/bing backdrops just are rendered correctly (so it seems), the data retrieved from geoserver is shifted (at certain scales). Note: when using my local geoserver it just works. If I use the windows geoserver, it is shifted. I could not capture in a screenshot, but in openlayers it actually shows the locally zoomed version before filling in the tiles, so it seems really clear that the newly retrieved tiles are "offset" in some way.

comment Geoserver: WMS layer is shifted at certain zoom scales in openlayers
Thank you Andrea! Interesting. So my local geoserver could have a different "zoom level definition" (maybe because it was updated from 2.3 -> 2.6), and the production geoserver was a fresh 2.6 (and later 2.7) install? Because on my local geoserver it works. So I check the gridsets in the menu? I am using standard 900913. Ow maybe relevant: I am using openlayers 2.14, which is maybe too ancient?

comment Comparison of the different open source GIS servers
Mmmm unfortunately there is no commenting option on that blog-post. The geoserver is really bad, and I am guessing they just used the standard install. They are using the wrong JRE, and I am guessing they did not install native imaging: docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/production/java.html

comment GeoServer- Reload feature type doesn't work
Owwww lifesaver: I had the same problem with duplicate columns appearing, and indeed: it also selected columns from a table with the same name in another schema (from another owner).

comment How to use OpenLayer.Transform?
In the current version the syntax has changed, you now have to write: proj4.defs("EPSG:3035", "+proj=laea +lat_0=52 +lon_0=10 +x_0=4321000 +y_0=3210000 +ellps=GRS80 +units=m +no_defs");

Good catch, I am sometimes numbers-dyslectic (well at least I got all the digits right, right?), fixed it. In my answer I did type it correctly, in my defense :)

comment deploying geoserver on linux or windows: performance implications?
Yes, I had found that already too, but it says nothing about performance, nor hard figures. If it was my choice, I would go for an ubuntu system. But to convince my client, I need a little more than a personal preference.

comment deploying geoserver on linux or windows: performance implications?
Thanks, I had already read that document, and applied some of the great advice to tune the performance of my windows servers. But in the document I do not find anything directly related to arguments preferring to choose linux over windows servers. I would rather prefer some hard data :)
