[OpenMap Users] Trouble with AreaHandler Object

Hello All,

I am trying to use the AreaHandler object to return the political
boundaries associated with a particular country. I have been using the
API documentation as my guide and as a result have ensured that I am
setting all of my properties correctly. More specifically I am first
creating an AreaShapeLayer and then try to retreive the AreaHandler from
the newly created AreaShapeLayer. When debugging I find that the
Hashtable (in AreaHandler) that stores all the PoliticalArea information
is null. Below is the code I am using to setup and initialize the
AreaHandler. If anyone could shed some light as to why the AreaHandler
isn't functioning properly, I would greatlly appreciate it.

Sample Code:

// Initialize the properties for AreaShapeLayer
Properties props = new Properties();
props.setProperty("layer.nameIndex", "4");
// Create a new AreaShapeLayer
AreaShapeLayer shapeLayer = new AreaShapeLayer();
// Initialize the layer with the above properties
shapeLayer.setProperties("layer", props);
AreaHandler areaHandler=shapeLayer.getAreas();
// Do I need this?
areaHandler.initialize("layer", props);
