Desupport of Fusion Middleware Mapviewer (Doc ID 2485093.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 19, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) formerly included a map visualization component, FMW MapViewer (aka MapViewer) which was licensed and distributed as part of FMW. MapViewer enabled spatial data, managed in the Oracle Database using Oracle Spatial and Graph option or Oracle Locator feature, to be visually rendered as maps on a browser.

Oracle MapViewer was deprecated with Oracle Fusion Middleware on December 21, 2018. It last shipped with Oracle Fusion Middleware

As of June 7, 2021, MapViewer is deprecated with all FMW releases. The Spatial Map Visualization Component distributed with Oracle Database should be used in MapViewer's place.


Since the release of Oracle Database 12.2,  Oracle Spatial and Graph includes a map visualization component that is fully compatible with MapViewer and with applications written to the MapViewer V2 API.  Like MapViewer, the function and purpose of this map visualization component is to provide tools that hide the complexity of spatial data queries and cartographic rendering, while providing customizable options for more advanced users. These tools can be deployed in a platform-independent manner and are designed to integrate with map-rendering applications.

Applications written using the MapViewer V2 API will work with Oracle Spatial's map visualization component.  Customers should migrate existing FMW MapViewer deployments to the map visualization component by undeploying the old MapViewer ear file and deploying the new map visualization component's ear file which is distributed with the database installation in the <$ORACLE_HOME>/md/jlib path. The applications in use must be built using the V2 API.
