Developer’s Corner: Achieving Extreme GeoServer Scalability with the new Marlin vector rasterizer

As you probably know, GeoServer is a Java based software, so its performance is heavily dependent on what the Java Virtual Machine and the Java standard library can offer. Over the years the GeoServer developers have been pushing the boundaries of what can be done by replacing portions of the Java standard libraries by adopting faster replacements, for example, the turbo jpeg encoder, the native PNG encoder available in ImageIO native extensions, or the recent adoption of the pure java, high performance PNGJ library. One of the Achilles' heel that so far we failed to replace is the anti-aliased rasterizer contained in the...

Developer’s Corner: DXF output format promoted to official extension for GeoServer

Dear all,as you may already know, GeoServer supports a wide variety of formats as an output of the WFS OGC service, to represent vector feature data. Such formats include the OGC standard GML XML based format (in its various versions), but also more "user friendly" ones such as the shapefile format, GeoJSON, CSV and so on.Some formats that are not supported by default, but that are used by some people working in the GIS field, are CAD formats. Among them, the most used in absolute (thinking of open formats) is DXF, the standard AutoCad file interchange format.Many GIS tools, for...
