Code sample: Customizing the appearance of mappable objects

The following code sample demonstrates how to define a base style, class style, and an ID style, and apply the styles to the style set for a map.

            map = MapFactory.getInstance().generateRichMapField();

            Style idStyle = new Style();
            styles.addIdBasedStyle("ID_1", idStyle);
            // Create objects that demonstrate the MapLocation class style.
            MapLocation wes = new MapLocation( 45.0000, -75.0100, "Wes", 
                    "Displays a class style" );
            model.add( wes );

            MapLocation mike = new MapLocation( 44.9900, -75.0100, "Mike", 
                    "Displays an ID style" );
            model.add( mike );
            mike.setStyleId( "ID_1" );
