Google Maps uses a JavaScript overlay feature. The full docs are on code.google.com. You'll need to get a license key, but it's free.The key is attached to a server URL that you supply when you apply for the key. I think you do have to pay if you make thousands of requests per day, but if you're that busy, hopefully someone's paying you for all that traffic.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
