GeoTools is a GIS toolkit that is used for OGC-based projects via GeoAPI interfaces. It includes two great SLD based renderers and tools for raster access and reprojection as well as plugins for Shapefile, ArcGrid, ArcSDE, Postgis, OracleSpatial, MySQL, and many more.
This release features several fixes in the WFS client, making it work against TinyOWS and the ArcGIS WFS server, and improvements in the usage of filter fuctions from SLD (some functions did not properly convert their arguments from string to numeric). Some tiling artifacts when rendering oversampled grid coverages were removed. FIDFilter objects in map rendering are now faster
