Greetings,

I'm glad to announce that I've been hired to develop a GIS solution entirely using Open Source Technology. The project's scope and definition aren't too complex,
What I will basically need to accomplish in the first phase is Touristic Thematical Map for a city.

Now, I'm here to consult those who may know and possess experience with java based GIS about which product should I use ?

What framework or Product would you recommend ? I'd like to know which one is the easiest to configure,
Or in other words, the one with which I'll be able to create a 'HelloWorld' the fastest.
My HelloWorld application in this case would be a map visualized in a web-browser.

Thank you very much and

Best Regards.

Jose

Hey Ulf !

I think I'll go for GeoTools. I especially like the part that it's supported by eclipse and NetBeans. However I'm not satisfied with the QuickStart guide it has on its web site...
Do you know where can I find a more proper example ?

Good Luck,

Jose
