Building a Google Map Mashup

Map with Location Icons

Alexis showed a nice
at JavaDay in Versailles.
Last week he
described the AJAX-based demo;
this week he explains how the implementation uses
Java Persistence,
NetBeans, and

Java Studio Creator

to query the, REST-based,
GeoEncoding Web Service.
Check Alexis' blogs
(part I,
part II)
for details.

An alternative approach is to use a rich-desktop client;
for example Aerith.
This is a big topic but
the main tradeoffs here are between richness / performance of the presentation,
the practicalities of deployment
(Java Web Start can help)
and/or integration within a browser.
