For ArcSDE/ArcGIS 9.2, there is an issue with GeoServer (tested with 1.4.1) and the way ArcCatalog 9.2 creates feature classes. ArcCatalog 9.2 creates text fields as NVARCHAR data type and it seems GeoServer does't like this. Trying to setup a new FeatureType results in a java.lang.NullPointerException error message.
The work around is to add
to the dbtune.sde file and then import the contents of this file into the DBTUNE table using the sdedbtune command. This forces ArcSDE 9.2 to create text field as VARCHAR data type.
Is it possible to have future versions of GeoServer support the NVARCHAR data type?
