GlassFish GeoMap as JavaFX App


James just posted his slides from Oracle OpenWorld... except that they are a JavaFX app. For most of the prezo the App behaves as slides (<TAB> to move forward) - except for the iconic JavaFX moving clouds - but at one point he switches to a version of our GlassFish GeoMap including zooming (scroll wheel), panning (drag), dot-size calculation and dot aggregation.

Check JAG's blog for an intro (and some platform constraints). Also see live app and screenshot (small, large) and the corresponding original pinkDot (live, large).

I'll add a link to James' keynote when it becomes available (probably here). Thanks to James for App (and the plug for GlassFish!) and to Paul Sterk for the raw geomap data.

Added - James James has factored out the Open Street Map Browser into its own OSMBrowser@Kenai.


I like the App. Tried it already for weeks now and it's really amazing. Great job for James.

look to real JavaFX map applet with source code

It doesn't use any server. It uses pictures from Google Map.
