What is the difference for the 'Name' value in the WMS Connector in pre-9.0 SP2 versions of ArcIMS?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


As of ArcIMS 9.0 Service Pack 2, the 'Name' attribute in the WMS service's Capabilities file corresponds with the LAYER element's 'id' attribute in the configuration AXL file of the WMS map service.

The WMS 'Title' corresponds with the ArcXML 'LAYER element's 'name' attribute.

Prior to this version, the Capabilities file's 'Name' attribute was used to refer to the LAYER element's 'name' attribute.
