This project is based on the JXMapViewer component of SwingX-WS.
The project was hosted at SwingLabs.org, but has been discontinued. We extracted the JXMapViewer part from the latest SwingX-WS version available and continue developing it.
The JXMapViewer Tutorial by Joshua Marinacci provided a good overview over the functionality of the component, which is now gone from java.net but available on archive.org. Please have a look at the examples section in addition.
The content of this project are also available at Maven Central and can be referenced in your
pom.xml with the following coordinates:
<dependency> <groupId>org.jxmapviewer</groupId> <artifactId>jxmapviewer2</artifactId> <version>2.5</version> </dependency>
This source code used in this project is based on:
- SwingX-ws-2009_06_14.jar formerly hosted at java.net/projects/swingx
- SwingX 1.6.3 (released Feb 2012) formerly hosted at java.net/projects/swingx-ws
