Hello Didier, and welcome!
Since the Geotoolkit project tries to reach an international user bases, the
mails need to be in English. No worry, I will summarize your question.
In short, Didier downloaded geotk-bundle.pack.gz, unpacked it and have been able
to run the Plot2D widget, but not the more elaborated widgets based on
MapContext, SingleFeatureTypeBuilder, etc.
This is normal since geotk-bundle.pack.gz contains only the stable part of
Geotk. The MapContext and other classes live in the pending part for now. You
can download a bundle which contains everything (both the stable and pending
parts with all there dependencies) there:
This remind me that I need to provide a link on the Geotk web page...
The second question that Didier asks is: is it possible to use data from a WMS
server with Geotk? The answer is yes, using the geotk-client-wms module
(included in the above-cited pack). However in order to get an example about how
to use them, we need to hope that Johan Sorel read his email during his holiday
:) (he is in holiday right now).
A third issue raised by Didier is that the demo applet don't work in his
browser. This is a know issue that I need to fix; things are made more difficult
by the fact that I'm developing on a Mac platform, and applet behavior seems to
change more than standard Java applications between browsers.
