I want to help out with JXMapKit and JXMapViewer, who can help me?
I have only just started to look at these components but see they could do with a little help. In particular I've found that workign with tile servers that have multiple servers to reduce load is not supported, I've now overcome this by writing a new tile factory and tile factory info, I've pulled out an TileFactoryInfo to aid with this.
So I have a number of questions.
- Who is currently looking after these components? Since they are in swingx-ws I am wondering if it's still maintained
- Do we still have a benefit over the OSM maintained JMapViewer? Would a merge between the projects be plausible?
- Who can I submit patches to?
- Are there currently any refactorring works taking place?
The default map server is the swing-labs map server which no longer appears to exist, will this be returned in the future?
