    jboss, spatial data, Postgre vs. Oracle

    Harry LeBlanc Newbie

      Hi, I'm in the process of building a jboss app for a client of mine. One of the requirements is that we support spatial data and web-based mapping. We were planning to use Oracle, but I just found out that Postgre has the Postgis extensions.
      Has anyone used Postgre with jboss? How stable is the jdbc driver? Does the jdbc driver support spatial data?
      What about web-enabled (and hopefully java-based) mapping tools that interact with jboss?
      Blue-sky questions, I know. But I'd love to have a totally open-source model if Postgre can deliver the functionality and stability I need.
      Thanks for your feedback to this jboss newbie.
