Howdi!

During this time away from the ranch, I've been looking into the Open Source Tecnologies I'll use to create my GIS application; What I've found, is that I'm definitely lacking the adequate knowledge about how some tools fit together.

Let me know If I'm right about the following statement:

If I want to visualize a map(and add basic functionality to it, like zooming) inside a web Browser, I should use GeoServer, instead of GeoTools

Now, If my statement happens to be correct, What do I use GeoTools for ?

Because, a consultant just sent me in the group of Tools I should use, and it looks like GeoServer provide the main functionality, while Geotools is just a Tools to work with layers ?

Let me know what do you think about all this.

Best Regards,

Jose
