I downloaded googlemaps.jar and put it in WEB-INF/lib. I got a key from Google and plugged it in but I still don't get output. Any ideas?



Thanks.

Does it generate HTML that would be correct for use with Google Maps? Are there any server-side or client-side error messages?

I did get one error in catalina.out so I move googlemaps.jar to $TOMCAT_HOME/lib and the page doesn't generate any error, nor any map or html, except test, which I put in to check my coding. I also put in my address, instead of variables without output.

Could it be that googlemaps.jar doesn't like open-jdk?

Thanks.

So you're saying that using this taglib doesn't result in any HTML output?

Let's move this question to the JSP forum, if that's the case.

I believe that <Googlemaps tags are out of date or don't work with the current Google API. I tried many tags, many keys and urls without success. I even played with the JavaScript output and couldn't get a visible map.

Hi Chris,

It might be worth contacting Google to check. I think their taglibs probably lives on the Google code site....
