hai,

I know that in google maps javascript api( version 3.3 is what all i care about) , if we give latitude and longitude then we can get the location. But our database tables don't provide latitude and longitudes. One of the tables consist of "Address" column , so i need to find the location on google maps with the help of address provided . how can i do that??

If i pass address as a parameter to the java function i should be able to find the location on google maps, is it possible?

or can i atleast find the latitudes and longitudes of the location if i pass address as a parameter to the function. thanks .

You post a question on Saturday and expect to have an answer on Monday? Seriously?

As to the question, I'd guess that Google has an API for this; the flimsiest of searches found this page which looks promising: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/webservices/index.html
