News: Google Maps for JSF (GMaps4JSF) 1.1 is released

  1. Google Maps for JSF (GMaps4JSF) 1.1 is released (8 messages)

    GMaps4JSF aims at integrating Google maps with JSF. JSF users will be also able to construct complex StreetViewPanoramas and Maps with just few JSF tags. GMaps4JSF is one of the JSF Mashups libraries that enables JSF users to build web 2.0 mashup applications in JSF easily. GMaps4JSF provides JSF tags that make it easy to: * Create the map using (latitude and longitude) or (address). * Add marker(s) to the map. * Add information text(s) to the map. * Add control(s) to the map. * Create event listener(s) on the map objects. * Draw polyline(s) on the map. * Draw polygon(s) on the map. * Add groundOverlay(s) on the map. * Perform different operations on the map like zooming in and out, switching between map types, ...etc. * Create a Streetview Panorama and integrate it simply with the map. GMaps4JSF supports Facelets and portlets as well. The Demo: http://mashups.s43.eatj.com/gmaps4jsf-examples/ The library main page: http://code.google.com/p/gmaps4jsf/ The tag library documentation page: http://code.google.com/p/gmaps4jsf/wiki/TagLibraryDocumentation The "How to use the library" page: http://code.google.com/p/gmaps4jsf/wiki/HowToUseTheLibrary
  2. RichFaces has a rich:gmap tag to access the Google Maps API 2. Has anybody used both rich:gmap and GMaps4JSF and cared to give a comparison? Off topic: I looked at one of gmaps4jsf examples and moved the marker to Thanh Pho Ho Chi Minh (Ho Chi Minh city) of Viet Nam. There's a city named Bien Hoa (not Bein Hoa as in Google Maps) north of HCM city.

    GMaps4JSF is a complete set of JSF components for Google Maps. It contains (map, marker, htmlInformationWindow, streetViewPanorama, eventListener, ...etc) components not just a single map component. For a complete tag library documentation, please check: http://code.google.com/p/gmaps4jsf/wiki/TagLibraryDocumentation Thank you.

    Hopefully, I will publish an article illustrating the library details.
  7. GMaps4JSF and Clustering[ Go to top ]

    Great work! Thanks. I'm going to need to use clustering with GMaps4JSF at some point. I was hoping there was an easy way to do so, either through integrating it with a JS Clusterer or using Java to do the clustering. Do you have any hints on this topic? Do I need to dig through the source code and figure it out myself or is there a known solution to this problem. Thanks again for your work!

    I did not try it in a clustered environment, Would you please try it and tell us if you face any problems? Thank you.
