Feature request #7719
add GML response to GetFeatureInfo in qgis mapserver
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:
|Copied to github as #:
this would allow, among the other things, to use the new feature of the QGIS wms client that allows to copy/paste features from WMS servers.
Note: on (UMN) mapserver this is possible when at a layer level is added the "gml_geometries" parameter
Description: (Optional, applies only to GetFeatureInfo GML requests) Provides a name for geometry elements. The value is specified as a string to be used for geometry element names. By default, GML geometries are not written in GML GetFeatureInfo output, unless gml_geometries and gml_[geometry name]_type are both set. By default, only the bounding box is written. If gml_geometries is set to “none”, neither the bounding box nor the geometry are written.

We also needs this feature than I start to work on it, but I see some design issue to implement it:
The method QgsWMSServer::getFeatureInfo fill a QDomDocument but I think that it should fill a QMap<QString, QList<QgsFeature>> or a QList<QgsFeature>, the first one has the advantage to separate the features per layer (QString => layer name).
The method QgsWMSServer::convertFeatureInfoToSIA2045 should be moved to QgsHttpRequestHandler.
Ad the methods QgsWFSServer::createFeatureGML2 and QgsWFSServer::createFeatureGML3 should probably be shared between WMS/WFS server but I don't know where to put them.
It never develop in the QGis core before than all input are welcome.

I just see that QgsHttpRequestHandler hasn't any dependencies on QGis components than I think that's almost content of the method QgsHttpRequestHandler::sendGetFeatureInfoResponse that should moved to QgsWMSServer::getFeatureInfo ...
better move this discussion in the developers mailing list.
