This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
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 ?
