I want to view Google Maps in my Java Applet.
I know I can use Google Maps API for displaying the maps in an AJAX application. But that's not what i want.
I intend to view, zoom and pan google maps in the Java applet.

Thanks for the answers.

why do you need it in applet when you can use the api and display in browser?

Since you can use the api and display in browser, you can use the JDIC browser to display the map!

I need to view the google maps in the applet, because I have an existing applet which uses another map server already (with many other functions that we need)
And I don't want to switch to Ajax completely and write everything from scratch just to be able to view google maps.

I don't want to use JDIC. I want to receive map images and draw them on a canvas or just set the icon prop of a label in order to view them.. I have my own methods for panning, and zooming in/out.

So is this possible? Can I receive google maps as images via http requests or something like that?
