GeoServer - http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOS/Home is quick and easy.
Alternativly there is Mapserver http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/ which works
nicely but is harder to set up.
Both of these eaxmples will allow you to publish your data as an image using
the OGC web map server protocol and as features using the OGC web feature
server protocol. Since these are open standrds you can use a variety of
clients to view the data. If you need to put the images on a web page then
I'd recomend Mapbuilder (http://mapbuilder.codehaus.org/) or Ka-map (
