Currently I use MapProxy to serve custom sqlite tile stores with a certain schema. I would like to enable GeoWebCache to do the same, but I don't know if GWC work the same way that mapproxy does.
MapProxy will serve out all the data in my cache if it exists. Since I have no source for this cache, if there is a missing tile, there is no server to retrieve it and nothing is shown for that tile.
I see that GeoWebCache has no native sqlite blobstore and the one github fork that added sqlite as a blob store is no longer available. Since GWC works by pointing it to a map service which it will then tile, will it serve requests for data from the cache even if that source is down?
I eventually want to get to the point where GWC is serving out sqlite tiles as it's own service and not reliant on another map service source.
