I am new here. Two days ago I made a map based on java Swing, OSM and the MapPanel package, under Windows 7, to construct a map, which I plan to use for years to come as a basis of an energy consultancy.
Important decisions regarding technology have to be taken.
First and foremost it has to be java based (do not want to learn a new language), preferably Swing (same reason).
It must be standalone as a desktop program, not browser-based.
Obviously I want to use OSM to the max, including markers, polygones, popups, in short the full program.
Additionally I have to consider if the technology chosen is still supported by a live developer group and will be in the future.
I noticed that SwingX seems no longer alive, not sure.
Also came across JXMapViewer, osmand.
So, given java/Swing/desktop, which techologies would you recommend for producing sophisticated maps for the long term?
Thanks for your time.
