I have used GeoServer for rendering my own maps.

Can GeoServer be used to serve geocoding / reverse geocoding requests (i.e. you put a street address and it gives you coordinates and vice versa)?

I am using non-US addresses.


GeoServer has no geocoding functionality built in. There is however a number of open source geocoders out there, this site offers a list (not sure if it's complete or up to date, just sharing as an example): https://awesomeopensource.com/projects/geocoder

If you need the GeoCoding to happen through a OGC compliant service, wrapping in a WPS process would be possible (either writing some Java code to make it happen, or wrapping it through another open source WPS server).
