Hi All,

I am new to Java and my class project involves creating a google map like application in Java. We will be doing some more computation on top of it. Since I am new to Java, I have no idea as to where to start. I googled and came across Mapobjects. Is it something that I can use ?
I dont really know how to go about it , so kindly help!
Also, we are not allowed to use google api for our project.

Thanks!

http://geotools.org/ should probably be the first port of call.

http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2007/10/30/building-maps-into-swing-app-with-jxmapviewer.html should also be interesting.
