Custom JDBC Access for image data¶
GeoServer does not come built-in with support for Custom JDBC Access; it must be installed through an extension. Proceed to Image Mosaic JDBC for installation details. This extension includes the support for Custom JDBC Access.
Adding a coverage based on Custom JDBC Access¶
This extension is targeted to users having a special database layout for storing their image data or use a special data base extension concerning raster data.
Read the geotools documentation for Custom JDBC Access: http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTDOC/Customized+JDBC+Access+for+images.
After developing the custom plugin, package the classes into a jar file and copy it into the WEB-INF/lib directory of the geoserver installation.
Create the xml config file and proceed to the section Configuring GeoServer in the Image Mosaic JDBC Tutorial
