A number of users asked whether the bean can be improved in order to have the same feature as the full fledge google map.

The answer is Yes. I already tried the zoom and pan controls to the Google static map. However, my time now is being spent on completing the HTML rich text editor and I really can’t deliver the Google map bean without extensive testing.

This is the planned schedule for the coming days (note to myself :) of course):

  • Complete and release the HTML rich text editor. This one is in the hands of the beta-testers. It should be available very soon.
  • Translate the SMS article to English.
  • Test and release the Google static map with zoom and pan controls.

Here is an output for a Javabean that shows the image from a Static Google Map.

Static Google Map Javabean output-Oracle forms 10g

The example shown here is for the google headquarters. The user inputs the address info in the Forms module and the Javabean takes care of fetching the data from Google Maps.

The process is done in two steps. First step is converting the address into Latitude and longitude (HTTP Geocoding) and then the static map is obtained from Google based on this info.

I will post the javabean here very soon.
