Justin Lokitz On Integrating MapViewer With Oracle AS Portal 10g
October 28, 2004
Mark Rittman

Creating a map portlet for Oracle Portal : "I was asked the other day to provide and example of how one might integrate Oracle Location technologies and mapping with Oracle Portal. Although there are many ways to do this, my immediate thought was, “well, what kind of information does this portal already provide?” Because Oracle Portal is an INCREDIBLE integration technology for any and all web applications and content, I figured there were a few things that the Portal developer would have to ask first. Like:

  1. What technologies are already built into the Portal architecture/framework that can be used to leverage existing location data?
  2. Will users need to see the information in tabular/report-based formats rather than just as maps?
  3. What technologies are the portal and map developers comfortable developing in?

Because the user-base I was targeting for this project are primarily users whom already use Oracle Discoverer for business intelligence, and also use end-user layers (EUL) that were built to query location information (see for instructions on how to do this) I figured the next logical step would be to add the functionality so that those same users would be able to see ALL of the information, tabular and maps, on the same page – sort of a BI dashboard. As I had already built some dynamic JSP maps for the Discoverer project, I decided to use those same maps within the portal framework." Read the rest on how Justin Lokitz built a dynamic map portlet using Oracle Portal (10g), the JPDK and Oracle Application Server MapViewer in in Justin's OraGIS blog.
