public class HelloWorld extends MapView {
public HelloWorld(MapViewOptions options) {
super(options);
setOnMapReadyHandler(new MapReadyHandler() {
@Override
public void onMapReady(MapStatus status) {
if (status == MapStatus.MAP_STATUS_OK) {
final Map map = getMap();
map.setZoom(5.0);
GeocoderRequest request = new GeocoderRequest(map);
request.setAddress("Kharkiv, UA");

getServices().getGeocoder().geocode(request, new GeocoderCallback(map) {
@Override
public void onComplete(GeocoderResult[] result, GeocoderStatus status) {
if (status == GeocoderStatus.OK) {
map.setCenter(result[0].getGeometry().getLocation());
Marker marker = new Marker(map);
marker.setPosition(result[0].getGeometry().getLocation());

final InfoWindow window = new InfoWindow(map);
window.setContent("Hello, World!");
window.open(map, marker);
}
}
});
}
}
});
}

public static void main(String[] args) {

MapViewOptions options = new MapViewOptions();
options.importPlaces();
final HelloWorld mapView = new HelloWorld(options);
