We want to implement GIS support in our product.

The client side graphical user interface is a Java Swing application. We would like to add components like a map and an overview of the layers in this map as an integrated part of this product. We should be able to zoom/ pan within the map and change layer properties and layer visibility etc.

Should we use Esri's MapObjects for Java to do this or does anyone have other suggestions?

We need to implement a geodatabase and a serverside product to communicate with this geodatabase. Should we use Esri's Arc SDE?

This "JavaRanch" forum is for asking questions about this site, not about Java; we have many other forums for that. All those other forums, though, require you to register before posting.

This question could be appropriate in "Other Java APIs" or "Other Java Products and Servers", but it's offtopic here. Please register and repost it in one of those forums. Thanks.
