comment ArcGIS 10 querying Oracle 10g without SDE
Service works fine through AGS, the only issue I had was the MXD doesn't travel well - even though the server machine's ArcMap had a connection with the same name I had to recreate the layers. Editing isn't supported through Query Layers so you have to edit through SQL. For my purposes this isn't such a problem though.

comment ArcGIS 10 querying Oracle 10g without SDE
from the comments on that link: "You will be able to use this feature to add a layer to ArcMap which has a native SDO_Geometry column storing spatial information for the feature. This map document can then be published as an ArcGIS Server map service. In this way sdo_geometry information will be exposed through a web service." I'll post back if I get anywhere

comment Hybrid security with ArcGIS Server
This still doesn't sound very secure - relying on the client to only make requests they're supposed to assumes a lot of trust in your users. It seems like you're leaving the door unlocked and hoping no one will realise they can just walk in off the street. With any kind of public-facing site you have to lock it twice and remove the door handle.

comment Hybrid security with ArcGIS Server
If I understand correctly you are talking about client-side code dictating which layers are visible to the user, so what stops the knowledgeable user from changing which layers they see?

comment MapFish Print latitude, longitude innacuracy?
I'm not familiar with MapFish, so this could be irrelevant, but what's the deal with maxExtent: [-180,-180, 180, 180]? I would assume this means your north and south bounds are much further away than they should be, which could be skewing distances

comment Should I start a new project using MapGuide OS?
Also please note that my misunderstanding of the IE / ActiveX distinction is a result of reading the documentation (Getting Started with Map Guide) on mapguide.osgeo.org/2.0/documentation.html

comment Should I start a new project using MapGuide OS?
Thanks for the detailed and thorough response. One thing that jumps out - "If you're more GIS user than a programmer... you're gonna have a bad time". To me MapGuide is supposed to target the user, not the programmer. That's why it provides pre-cooked viewers and a GUI configuration tool - it's supposed to be useful with very little input, not a "hacker's GIS". Projects like OpenLayers and GeoServer are exclusively for developers as they require development to be useful. As a contractor my time is expensive, and MG needs too much of it. Most importantly: would you use it for a new project?
