OpenLayers 2 Add-on | Vaadin

OpenLayers 2 add-on for Vaadin 7

This add-on is a port of the excellent OpenLayers Wrapper add-on for Vaadin 6. It implements all of the same features as the Vaadin 6 version.

This add-on contains server side wrapper component for an OpenLayers 2 Map. It also provides API's for different types of layers.

The integration is built on its own GWT wrappers around OpenLayers javascript API. The GWT part is designed so that the add-on can also be used in plain GWT applications without Vaadin.

Some of the most essential features listed below:

  • Multiple base layers (E.g. WMS, TMS, Google maps, VirtualEarth (aka Bing), OpenStreetMap)
  • VectorLayer (Points, Areas, Lines, drawing, editing and styling either explicitly or via StyleMaps)
  • Popups
  • MarkerLayer (Users can start using VectorLayer instead. Also with plain OpenLayers)

The client side implementation is based on GWT's JavaScript overlays. Extending the API to any of OpenLayers features should be rather straightforward. Contributions, feature requests and bug reports are welcome via the Github project page.
