Limitations in client side styles (for Vector Layers/FOI) in the V2 API

The V2 API (in MapViewer versions 11.1.1.7.0 and 11.1.1.7.1) currently has some limitations in styles that can be used for vector layers (aka FOI). That is, some styles which can be defined in MapBuilder and used for FOI with the V1 API cannot be used for vector layers in V2.

The current limitations are:

LINE styles in v2 have these limitations:
   1. no dash support (on any part of the line style)
   2. no marker-pattern or built-in arrow head on LINE style

AREA styles that use image as fill pattern: not supported 

TEXT styles:  some labeling hints are not supported, such as sticky, multi-line auto-wrap

DOT density style: not supported in v2

MapViewer 11.1.1.7.1 new config settings for vector layers

In 11.1.1.7.1 the data server which sends vector layers (theme-based FOI) to the client is restricted by default. The config file mds.xml (located in the same directory as mapviewerConfig.xml) has to be updated to allow the data server to access and serve up layers from desired data sources.

The relevant readme.txt entry is

- Map Data Server (MDS), the vector theme streaming server of MapViewer, is now in 
  lock-down mode by default and will not allow themes to be streamed to a client unless 
  explicitly configured otherwise. You will need to manually edit the 
  WEB-INF/conf/mds.xml file to control which data sources and which themes can be 
  streamed to a HTML5 application client. 
  A MapViewer restart is required for the changes to take effect.
