ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt is designed to help C++ developers use the Digia Qt framework to create highly functional GIS applications that use local services, yet the applications can have a small footprint. Local services allow for disconnected work in the field; an ArcGIS Server connection is not required.
Here is another quick installment of how to code something with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java that you may have had to do previously in ArcObjects. It is so quick that it may not even warrant the overhead of reading a … Continue reading
The use of a Definition Expression is an extremely powerful technique for displaying a subset of features in a layer that is satisfied by a standard SQL statement. For example, I have a “countries” layer used in my map, but at certain times in my application’s life-cycle I may only want to display Germany on the map. I could apply a temporary definition expression to the layer by giving a query such as “Country_name = ‘GERMANY’”. At this stage, only the polygon feature for Germany will be available for display and querying in that map layer.
ArcGIS applications built with the Runtime SDK for Java (or WPF, by the way) can have this same capability.
NetBeans is another great development environment that allows programmers to quickly and easily build great desktop, mobile and web applications with Java. NetBeans also supports mobile and Web development with Java, C++, and many different scripting languages. The NetBeans IDE is free, open source, and has a worldwide community of users and developers.
Because the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java provides a pure Java API and development experience, it plugs in nicely with IDEs such as NetBeans, even though the ArcGIS Runtime SDK does not ship with NetBeans modules. Continue reading

2012 is coming to a close. Already. We have all witnessed and experienced lot of great innovation within the ArcGIS System this past year. Now, to kick off your 2013, we are preparing a very exciting ”update” of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android, a version we are calling the 10.1.1 update. You’ll hear a lot more about the new version numbers soon, but in this quick post, we want to unveil some highlights for you. So here we go…
- There are new Network Analyst Tasks for supporting the following operations (in an “always connected” scenario) :
- Service Area
- Closest Facility
- We’ve added a new “Find” Task for searching through multiple layers and fields in a Map.
- There is now support for continuous panning in the Map across the International Date Line (“wrap around”).
- Time aware layers – We’ve added support for time-aware layers which store information about the changing state of a dataset over time.
- Highlight Features – Selected features have highlight symbology representation. There was always feature highlighting, but they were simple symbols.
- PKI Security support for accessing secured services from ArcGIS Online.
- Graphic elements in a GraphicsLayer now have a Z order property, giving developers control and management of the draw order of graphic objects.
- We’ve implemented a new Geocode service, which now handles single-line input fields.
New Layer Types
- KML (Support is limited to KML over the Internet)
- CSV- A comma-separated list of values (CSV) storing tabular data in plain text format.
- Open Street Map
- New Samples Wizard that includes remote samples from ArcGIS online – Sample wizard has been re-designed to allow for local or remote samples to be brought into your Eclipse developer environment.
- The Javadoc has a new look and feel
- Javadoc API searching made easier - you can search directly in the API reference.
- UML model integration into the Javadoc - There is much better visualization of object model relationships inside the API.
Changes to the API
- Advanced Symbology API changes have been made to support the updated 2525C Symbol Dictionary
- 10.1 Query Improvements
This new update strengthens the ArcGIS Android API for building world-class geo-centric applications for phones and tablets. We encourage your involvement in working with this new update, so stay tuned for the announcement in a short couple of weeks, and let us and your developer community hear from you on the user forums and on twitter: @ArcGIS_Runtime.
