This would be nice to know. Part of business now is heavily reliant on applications developed with mapviewer, however it all seems like it has gone dead - no updates, forums rarely used and so on. I assume that an update is coming and this product is still being actively worked on by Oracle so I don't need to find an alternative???
Mapviewer is alive!! There are mapviewer patches available at metalink. About a new offical mapviewer release oracle says "very soon". It will contain some nice html5 enhencements... looking forward to that.
