ifmapj, a lightweight IF-MAP 2.0 library for Java is now available

We are pleased to announce that the first version of our brand new IF-MAP library for Java is now available for download.

ifmapj provides full support for IF-MAP 2.0 and dramatically eases the development of MAP clients in Java. By default, ifmapj makes use of only one external library: Apache httpcore. However, ifmapj can even work properly without it.

ifmapj comes with a set of code examples that should enable developers to quickly produce first working results. If you have any comments or remarks on ifmapj, pleases contact us at
