    Using MapPoint with Oracle web application

    Has anyone heard of anyone using MapPoint with an Oracle web application? Java is an option, although pl/sql is preferred.

    It seems like this MapPoint thing is way more complicated than it needs to be. We upload data to them, we send them a set of arguments, they send back some xml, we parse it. But everything I'm seeing, including spatialpoint's java example, is way more complicated than that.

    I've worked with MapQuest and Vicinity, why is this so different?

    Hello,

    The problem with using something like pl/sql to access the MapPoint web service is dealing with the Digest Authentication. Working with the web service isn't difficult although you can easily build an application that is very complex. I wouldn't base the complexity of working with MapPoint on the SpatialPoint application or some other demo app because demo apps usually are designed to highlight MapPoint functionality, not necessarily built for performance or simplicity. Take a look at the small code snippets in the SDK, it can be as simple as uploading data, sending a set of arguments, receiving some xml, and parsing it.
