hi folks,

I just tested a bit the geoserver with the embedded geowebcache on server and udig 1.2 as an wmsc client.

After reading the gewebcache.org main pages I thought the geowebcache would act as a proxy, which gets the client request and requests the WMS servers behind. But I was not able to find any information about the supported standard versions (WMS 1.0.0, WMS 1.1.0 or WMS 1.3.0). So here are my questions:

- Wich standards are supported for back-end WMS Servers?
- Wich version of WMS standards can be requested against geowebcache?
- Does geowebcache support several WMS client versions or only on special? I thought geowebcache as a real proxy can be requested with e.f WMS 1.1.1 client and handles and transforms the request about the configured WMS servers in the back-end.
- How has the client set width and height for tile request? Does the client need any details about the cache setup on server side?

Hopefully anybody could clarify.

in regards 
Frank
