I have a huge problem setting up geoserver's geowebcache to serve arcgis compact cache layer and I am getting a bit confused. I have installed geoserver 2.8.0 which contains geowebcache 1.8.0.
According to official geowebcache manpage (http://geowebcache.org/docs/1.8.0/configuration/layers/arcgistilingschemes.html), serving of arcgis compact cache is not possible.
On the other hand, I have found this thread (http://sourceforge.net/p/geowebcache/mailman/message/31884822/) which says that it is possible to serve this data source. I have also found ArcGIS compact cache support in geowebcache RELEASE_NOTES.txt file on github under version 1.6.x. I can also see some code that should cope with arcgis compact cache in the git directories.
I tried to add following section to the
<arcgisLayer> <name>naturalearth</name> <tilingScheme>/home/geoserver/geoserver2.8/data_dir/gwc/arccache/conf.xml</tilingScheme> </arcgisLayer>
But geoserver failed to start. Does anyone successfully serve arcgis compact cache? Can you please share the information about how to configure such a service with geowebcache?
Thanx a lot.
