This version includes a generic EAR file which can be deployed to other JEE containers such as Tomcat or GlassFish. The WebLogic specific EAR requires WLS with JRF.
In addition, a new feature, dynamic tile layer, allows a client map application to define and create tile layers dynamically. Because it is independent from MapViewer's metadata definition for tile layers, any number of dynamic tile layers can be created on the client side, making it very useful in big data analytics. Dynamic tile layer capabilities include:
- A new HTML5 API that can define the dynamic tile layers directly, without relying on pre-defined tile layers on the server
- Ability to fetch fresh map images (not cached images) from a MapViewer server or a third party map service provider
- Allowing a client application to provide a custom
URL-generation function to specify where its tile images are to
- Ability to configure a dynamic tile layer such that attribute values of all the displayed features are embedded in the tile images and displayed via info window or tooltip on mouse over any feature
