Hi,
I'm newbie to the portal developement.
My requirement is like this :
Display a world map. Handle the events on the map like click,move,drag etc.
This part can be done by [color=red]Google Map API[/color].

Client insists the use of weblogic portal. This needs to integrate the Google Map API from within the portal.

How can I use Google Map API from inside the portal. I searched a lot on google for any concrete example. But could not get a single example.

Thanks in advance,
Anagha

What exactly have you tried? Google maps integration consists of HTML and JavaScript, so I don't think you even need the portal/portlet API for this.

Yes,I created HTML with Java Script in it and disaplyed a Google Map by entering Latitude and Longitude for a sample execise.
As I'm newbie to the portal, I'm not sure what portal is going to add here.

Do you mean portal is not at all required and and a simple web page can do for enterpise application?

Please ellaborate.

Thanks,
Anagha

We don't know what the rest of your application requires, but Google Maps -as you found out- does not need portal functionality.
