I had 1.7.0 and we occassionally have to restart geoserver, after
restarting it it is fine. Stale database connections to Oracle? That
question I haven't gotten an answer for yet.
So in the meantime, I downloaded 1.7.2 and the oracle plugins for this
version (not the next generation I don't know what that is)
The openlayers map preview works but the KML generation generateds
something but the placemarks are not visible for the FEATURE_TYPE that
is hooked to an oracle spatial table with points.
This worked on 1.7.0.
The demos that come with the app work and generate KML fine.
Trying http://localhost:8080/geoserver/wms/kml?layers=<FT>&mode=refresh with my feature type worked...
When using the links without this mode=refresh option the KML output on the navigation area of google earth has "00" and "01" and no placemarks actually show up on the map, a screenshot of the navigation area is shown. When in mode=refresh the placemark titile and lat,long information is in the navigation area as expected and placemarks are on the map.
