Can anyone help me with an issue I am having with creating ECW datastores in Geoserver? I have installed GDAL 1.9.2 and the latest plugin on Geoserver 2.11.2

When I put an ECW file in the /data_dir/data folder it can create the store and read the ECW. You do have to use a relative path. But when it is out of the folder (so anywhere on the server) or If you use an absolute path (ex: C:\geoserver\data_dir\data\theecw.ecw) I get an error.

This is the stacktrace I am getting:

2017-10-05 13:59:29,670 INFO [org.geoserver.web] - Getting list of coverages for saved store file://C:\theecw.ecw

Can anyone help me with this issue?

  • Wild guess but have a try with forward slashes when you create the store C:/geoserver/data_dir/data/theecw.ecw – user30184 Oct 5 '17 at 12:29
  • does your GDAL have the ECW format built in? are you on windows docs.geoserver.org/stable/en/user/data/raster/… ? – Ian Turton Oct 5 '17 at 12:31
  • @user30184 ooh. I feel like an idiot :O it seems forwardslashes work. In an older version of the plugin backward slashes works as well. – jsmit2 Oct 5 '17 at 12:33
  • @iant I am on windows. GDAL works if you use relative paths – jsmit2 Oct 5 '17 at 12:34
  • 2
    do you have a server licence for ECW – Ian Turton Oct 5 '17 at 12:35

There is an open GeoServer bug about bad File->URL conversion in file chooser https://osgeo-org.atlassian.net/browse/GEOS-8143

Until the bug is resolved you can use a workaround to write file paths with forward slashes also on Windows, like this:

C:/geoserver/data_dir/data/theecw.ecw)
