With the ArcGIS Android v10.2 release we introduced a bunch of offline developer capabilities as beta features in the API. One of the more important features is the ability to create your own ArcGIS Runtime Geodatabase programmatically for use with offline features. In this post we will step through the programmatic workflow for creating these offline geodatabases.
There are two patterns for creating a Runtime Geodatabase offered below:
- Service pattern: Best for supporting a large number of users as the data is exposed as a service which supports downloading parts or all of the features as a Runtime Geodatabase.
