Coloring markers inRichMapField


I need to set the fill color of markers in a RichMapField. 


I first tried to use the object MapLocation and applied a style using the method setStyleId("MY_STYLE_ID"). It seems that all styles about fillColor and edgeColor are ignored (or not displayed), while styles for labels are correctly applied.


Then I tried to use the GsMarker object, using the constructor with 5 arguments in this way:


new GsMarker( latitude, longitude, "http://myWebsite/images/marker_black.png", label, null ); 

new GsMarker( latitude, longitude, "res/images/marker_black.png", label, null ); 


This worked but it seemed to need that the image of the marker was a remote URL. When I try to reference the image as an inner resource of my project the result is either a Java Exception or the display on map of default red markers ignoring completely the image.


Has anyone experienced similar problems? Any idea or workaround to solve this problem?


Thanks in advance
