I am implementing a Geospatial Digital Rights Management application based on a service oriented architecture. (OGC Document - GeoDRM Engineering Viewpoint)
This makes it difficult to use Mapbuilder on the client side because of its use of the Web mapping context to make WMS requests. Although I would like to use other features of Mapbuilder such as the zoom and pan controls and the layer control as well.
Is there any way to customize mapbuilder to meet the needs of my application and how complicated the customization would be? Basically I am looking to use the MapPaneOL widget and the button toolbar at the minimum.
