      Description

      Hi Osgeo-team,

      I recently followed the instructions at geotools.org using the
      quickstartlink for eclipse (
      http://docs.geotools.org/latest/userguide/tutorial/quickstart/eclipse.html
      ) . There I noticed a failure in the examplecode (the code does not work
      proper):

      //-codebeginning
      MapContent map = new MapContent();

      Style style = SLD.createSimpleStyle(featureSource.getSchema());
      Layer layer = new FeatureLayer(featureSource, style);
      map.addLayer(layer);

      // Now display the map
      JMapFrame.showMap(map);
      //codeend

      Eclipse wants to cast map to MapContext. When I enter "geotools tutorial"
      in google I get a tutorial on your site with the correct code (using
      MapContext). Maybe you could correct the code at geotools at the
      quickstart-link. People who want to start with geotools mostlikely start
      with it using this quickstartlink . A false code doesn't cause a lot of
      Motivation .
