Wonderful API for GIS Apps. using Applet
Thanx to James and his team for their continous effort and dedication which has resulted into a wonderful Java API for GIS Apps.
I personally found the API very structured and featured which has been giving me constant thrill as I am exploring and learning the possibility.
At somepoint sometimes it is difficult to clearly intrepret the meaning but with little code it becomes a see-thru-crsytal.
I am glad to hit this site accidently. Thanx to google.
