comment Geoserver - restrict access to layer by IP mask
What is the operating system that geoserver is running on ? Would get requests satisfy your requirements for access ?

comment How to save WMS getFeatureInfo points to a layer?
Normally if you are interested in underlying data then it means you need WFS. There is only one method in WMS which might me helpful and it is GetFeatureInfo. It will give your attribute (feature) info of a vector that you point at. So basically you need x,y parameters for able to use it. If you know which point you are interested in (for instance center of a vector) then you can fetch the attribute information of that vector. Probably Identify tool that you mention is doing that. Hope this helps

comment How to overlay points from MySQL served by Geoserver on an Openlayers map?
Then I should ask do you arbitrarily creating those points or are they coming from a dataset with a certain SRS ? If it is arbitrary then go with ESPG:4326 otherwise set native SRS to the one that the dataset has. However I guess you don't have it right ?

Sorry I overlooked at that you are using Mysql extension. Did you check this : geo.ifip.tuwien.ac.at/imak/2009/stack_workshop/doc/mysql/… It says "MySQL does not know about spatial reference systems (SRS). It is up to you to provide the correct EPSG code for the stored coordinates." Therefore Goeserver settings should be sufficient.

comment How to get started on web GIS development with Java?
I am using Vaadin with Vopenlayers (it is a port of Openlayers api by using GWT JSNI) and happy with it so far. By the way just curiosity, are you contributing to the vol project ? However in the question preference is marked as Struts so I would say it is best to take a look at Openlayers and Geoserver for a kick start. I would recommend using Geotools only if there is a solid motivation/requirement and would prefer to delegate GIS functions as much as possible to Geoserver (since it is already using Geotools). Geotools is a bit too messy and big for simple stuff...

comment display a selected WMS Info
If you still want to use the popups move popup functionality to showInfo and replace with the current one (which appends info) or just create a new function and in the event registration point to that function...

comment display a selected WMS Info
as I see in the code you've registered showInfo rather than popup function. So isn't it showing the info by appending the text in the page ? or do you mean it is not working in the sense of popups ?

comment display a selected WMS Info
I am not JS expert nor Openlayers here but I think you should register a listener for "getfeatureinfo" event otherwise the other events (that might be coming from basemap) may cause that... Please check the code example I gave before, if you look at the source code at line 112 you will see : infoControls[i].events.register("getfeatureinfo", this, showInfo); It might be useful to follow the code from there... Let me know if it helps

comment Workflow process to style vector data using GeoServer
In terms of cartographic styles if you are going to use Geoserver as a WMS (Web Map Service) you'd better look at SLD (Styled Layer Descriptors) specification. There is a nice cookbook : docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/styling/sld-cookbook/… On the other hand if you will use openlayers and display vectors than you probably will not need Geoserver you can style vectors in client side... About web-host vs desktop server; it is all up to you and both possible I believe but I would run Geoserver next to database (as close as possible) to avoid performance penalties...
