    Confused about Mapviewer and SQL in OBIEE 11g.

    Jerry S.

      I read in another post that you cant use mapviewer unless you have an oracle database.

       

      Here is my confusion. The mapviewer product comes with OBIEE 11g, Correct?

      If I use Google Maps, and load the map information into an SQL data base, why wouldnt I be able to get it to work?

       

      I cant believe that Oracle, who makes a big deal about how OBIEE can work with "Any data source", would provide a key function

      that would only work with an Oracle data base, thereby purposely excluding many of their customers from using that key function.

       

      Someone please clear this up for me because we need to use maps and we use SQL Server 2008  for our data warehouse.
