Embedding OpenLayers in Oracle JET for Advanced Maps and GIS style User Interfaces by Lucas Jellema


Oracle JET is a toolkit for the creation of rich web applications. Many applications will have location-related aspects. Such applications can benefit from advanced map capabilities – for presenting data in maps, allowing users to interact with maps in order to formulate queries, navigate to relevant details or manipulate data. OpenLayers is one of the most prominent open source JavaScript libraries for working with maps in web applications. It provides an API for building rich web-based geographic applications similar to Google Maps and Bing Maps. One of the geographic data providers that OpenLayers works well with is Open Street Map (OSM) – also fully open source.

In this article, I will report on my first steps with OpenLayers and OSM integrated in Oracle JET. In a few simple steps, I will create the JET application illustrated below –a  mix of a JET Checkbox Set where countries can be selected and an OpenLayers map that is manipulated from JavaScript to show (and hide) markers for the countries that are selected (and deselected).
