I need to build an application that contains a google map and the application will need to contain various buttons that perform certain actions on this google map. Like when pressing a button the maps shows a route on the map.
can you help me please ? I dont need coding I just need some help on how to get started !
thanks for the help. Im sure I will come back with more questions since these google api's are new to me.
for you help again.
I've never heard of a standalone desktop application using Google Maps. It may exist, but that's not how I integrate Google Maps to my code.
But I don't know how exactly it does that (or even whether it's written in Java). Maybe it uses an embedded web browser widget that shows the map.

At home, you can read the log information from the device and with some software it shows on a map exactly what your route was. It's a desktop application that has Google Maps integrated into it to display the map.
I have one of those too, and I've written some Java code (open source) Pat's Java library with GPS reading code.
I just use web-apps to do the integration with Google Maps. Perhaps they have a desktop integration, but Google wants you to use the web.
Which brings me back to my question for the OP, what exactly do you mean?
