we are developing two application, the desktop and web application.. we are using vb.net for desktop application and drupal for web application.., what we are trying to achieve is plot a certain shapefile and save it to the database and that shapefile will be then update to the drupal..

is there a script that automatically upload shapefile to the geoserver in vb.net ???

your help is so much appreciated.. :)

  • Does the shapefile Store already exist in GeoServer or are you wanting to create the Store on the fly?

Not that I know of, but you can build one using the "GeoServer REST api", and possibly mimick existing code for other languages, there are clients written in Java, Python and so on


I know this is an old question but this link might be helpful. It is in C# and I am trying to convert it to the VB.net.
