Loading MBTiles file using GeoTools?

Loading MBTiles file using GeoTools?

is there a way to load MBTiles file using GeoTools?

I need to work with huge map and so far I have tried PNG + world file which was unusable (slow speed due to large files - 150MB). So I am thinking about using some sort of database and loading it by tiles would be the best way. I can easily create MBTiles (using MOBAC).

I have found MBTiles class in documentation but there is only a little explanation.

I would check the tests in github, here.

That said I would say you should look into optimized (big)tiff support. Check these slides which are made for GeoServer but still usable for your case I believe.
