I have an XML data. I simply need to get coordinates of a feature from XML to zoom the map on it.

But when I try to read it I get nothing. What am I doing wrong? Have any idea?

When I try to read it like this example - https://jsfiddle.net/d08s532r/27/

 //try to parse
 var format = new ol.format.GML(); 
 var feature = format.readFeatures(str, 
 {featureName:'member',featureProjection: 'EPSG:4326'})
 //resulting array is empty
 console.log("feature:");
 console.log(feature);

 //need to get coordinates but can't do it 
 var ext = feature[0].getGeometries().getCoordinates();   

I tried to parse the text from server into xml and read it, but result was the same. Is it some problem with my xml data?

It will not work as you are using WFS 2.0 and default support for the feature parser is WFS 1.1.0 (you can choose also WFS 1.0.0) as stated in the WFS doc You may not see why I speak about WFS version. It's because each WFS version support a GML version by default

  • WFS 1.0.0 contains GML 2.1.2 (both WFS & GML version supported in OpenLayers)
  • WFS 1.1.0 contains GML 3.1.1 (both WFS & GML version supported in OpenLayers)
  • WFS 2.0.0 contains GML 3.2.1 (both WFS & GML version unsupported in OpenLayers)

You may want to cheat to avoid the issue with WFS 2.0.0 version:

  • using "outputFormat=application/json" that return a GeoJSON instead of an unreadable GML like in this official demo. This solution will work out of the box for GeoServer or for Mapserver, play with configuration in the mapfile
  • change WFS version from 2.0.0 to 1.1.0 in your WFS call and OpenLayers will parse correctly the features
  • change outpuformat to get features with a GML format supported by OpenLayers (for ArcGIS Server, for GeoServer)

You can go the 1st way or the 3rd if using ArcGis Server 10.5 or more (I've seen your issue on OpenLayers repo so I know more or less your context). Otherwise, you will have to go the 2nd way or you may also consider consuming ArcGIS REST Feature Service
