    Hi!

There are several Geospacial Open Source Software that you can look at
http://java-source.net/open-source/geospatial
http://geo-google.sourceforge.net/usage.html
http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/services.html
Look at the GDirections on the GoogleMaps services

Hi Guys,

thanks for the response but the issue that I am facing is that I am struck with java1.4 version and the google API  needs the 1.5 version of Java. Hence I was wondering if there was some kind of silver bullet even with the map quest or any other Implementations that I could bite.
