Hi Experts,

I have a web application build in VS 2010.

One web pages has a combobox filled with vessel names and a Subgurim google maps control. After the check boxes of vessels are toggled an event fires a server side function which plots all the markers with correct icons, labels and infowindow content. The coordinates, infowindow content and icons are based on data stored in an SQL database (geocoding is not used).

The above is working, but I am running into limitations that could be solved using the Google maps API V3.

I wonder if it is possible to use the Google maps API V3 instead of the Subgurim google maps control. Key question is if it is still possible to have the logic and SQL data retrieval server side and if not how to convert the logic to Java (especially using the vessel name to retrieve data from an SQL database).

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,
MB

the best way to implement GMaps in ASP.NET is using javascript:

As far as additional logic on server is concerned, you can always make AJAX calls to call a Method on server(either in HTTPHandler, or WebService).
