Hi,
In one of my assignment I need to access google maps API. Project is something like - there will be GUI window where user need to specify the lan & long and apps inturn display the corresponding location in the map.I dont have any prior knowledge about google maps API. I went through some tutorial but I cant able to understand anything from it. Almost all tutorial speaks about integrating google map in webpages but I dont think this is my cup of tea. So please give your suggestion about what are the background knowledge needed before getting started & is there any gud/easy tutorials available for it. P.S I am using netbeans IDE

The first step is not to understand them, but to get them running. Once you have a working application, surely you can analyze the source code to see what's going on. Start here: http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2007/10/30/building-maps-into-swing-app-with-jxmapviewer.html
