Hello People


Please give me suggestions on java program for providing search results based on zip code. For example searching for listings of companies within 200 miles of a given zip code, similar to what is done on google maps.


Thanks

Have you thought about integrating with a 3rd party API such as the Google Maps API?

You need three things:

(1) Locations of these companies you plan to tell people about

(2) Locations of zip codes

(3) A way of computing the distance between two locations
