Is there any real alternative to GeoServer as dynamic map generator in Java?

I’m looking for the most suitable tool for generating dynamic geographical maps in Java (with styles based on custom business data: colors, labels etc. will be dynamically set). After some searching, only GeoServer (and the underlying GeoTools library) seems to fit.

Although I’m really happy with this solution, I’m afraid I might miss something and make some decision based on incomplete input. Any suggestion ? Any viable alternative to compare against ?

Answer

Take a look at OpenMap. It is a descent alternative to manipulate/display geospatial data.
