this is a work in progress (incomplete)

The DataStoreFinder is a generic method to use pluggable DataStores. See How to use a PostGISDataStore for an example of using this with the PostGISDataStore. The following is a list of parameters for the different DataStores available in geotools.

ShapefileDataStore

PostGISDataStore

Note that for geometries to work the table must have a valid entry in the 'geometry_columns' table. All geometry columns created with the 'AddGeometryColumn' function in PostGIS should be fine. GeoTools will work fine with tables that do not have geometries. GeoTools also prefers that all tables are created with primary keys. The featureids created will not work as well if there is no primary keys. (TODO tutorial on featureids and working with/programming an fidmapper).

MySQLDataStore

DB2DataStore

 OcacleDataStore

ArcSDEDataStore

Mandatory parameters:

Optional parameters:

GeoMediaDataStore

TigerDataStore
