With the plotCity example, you can plot a city on a map by performing the following tasks:
Select a state from a Dojo combobox widget, thereby populating another Dojo combobox widget with a list of cities located in that state.
Select a city from the second Dojo combobox widget, thereby causing the application to access the city's coordinates from an external service and plot the city on a map represented by a Google map widget.
This tutorial uses the plotCity example to demonstrate using the primary features of jMaki:
An extensive widget tag library for use in JSP pages.
Easy access to server—side data from jMaki widgets.
Mechanisms to perform widget-to-widget communication.
A proxy service to access external services.
