Two things:

Web Map Server Client
1. With some help from others, I've just finished getting standard
Web Map Service (WMS) Client functionality into the geotools applet. 
(It is
still needs polishing, but it works).
2. We've implemented double buffering, so that you can get immediate
feedback as you pan/zoom, and the map layers get redrawn as they become
3. I have a demonstration which accesses 2 different Web Map Servers,
but you should be able to access as many as you like.

Community Map Builder Project

Building the WMS client is just the first step in my grand plan of
building an open source map data entry tool - which essentially is a Web
Feature Server (WFS) Client - plus a little more.

I'm looking out for like minded developers, or people who just want to
keep informed.  I'm particularly interested to hear ideas about
developing Web Feature Servers (WFS) and whether this should be done
with PostGIS.
