- Set the rendering mode for graphics layers and feature layers. Dynamic mode to retain a dynamic, interactive experience with graphics. Static mode to improve drawing performance when displaying graphics.
- Use symbol rotation parameters on renderers.
- Define label properties for dynamic layers in ArcGIS map services.
- Support for new ArcGIS Image Service features included with 10.2.
- Create, update, and delete items on ArcGIS Online or on-premise ArcGIS Portals.
- Use WebMapViewModel to integrate web maps into apps that employ MVVM design patterns.
- Use IdentityManager with OAuth2 authentication workflows.
See the Release Notes for more details on what’s new and changed in version 10.2.
Note, this release does not contain the new beta features included with other 10.2 ArcGIS Runtime SDKs, such as support for offline use of data for map display, sync-enabled editing, locators, and networks. The new ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET, discussed in a blog post earlier this year, will support this new offline functionality. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET will be available as 10.2.1 public beta in December 2013.
With the recent release of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android 10.2 we expanded the SDK to include resources deployed on disk. These resources include all the API libraries and Javadoc’s to support working outside of the Eclipse developer environment. Last year, almost to the day, we released a blog post about working with IntelliJ and ArcGIS Android API. This is a follow up post which updates the process for working with the 10.2 release of the Android SDK. Continue reading
The long awaited release is finally here! The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android team is proud to announce the release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android v10.2. You can download the release here.
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android is the spatial mapping system that powers native Android applications. It is our goal with this release to provide powerful features to broaden and increase Android mapping applications built with ArcGIS.
New in the API
Some of the new features in ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android 10.2 include:
API Simplification: We introduced a MapOptions class to instantiate a MapView with a pre-defined basemap, zoom level, and map center.
GeometryEngine: Added support for geodesic length, offset, ellipse, and sector operations.
Support for geometries with Z and M values.
New modes for Graphics and Feature layers: Added support for dynamic and static mode on GraphicsLayer and FeatureLayer for different drawing performance options.
New Feature Interface: Graphic now implements this interface as well as the new Beta GdbFeature class.
New Beta functionality
This release introduces new Beta functionality related to working offline. This includes the ability to do the following:
TileCacheTask: Clip, export and take tiled map services offline.
GeodatabaseTask: Provided ability to take operational data in hosted feature services offline.
Offline Routing and Geocoding: These tasks work with local locators and networks provisioned on your device. This requires ArcGIS 10.2.1 locators and networks.
We have made a lot of improvements to the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android. In past releases the SDK came exclusively as an Eclipse plugin. New at 10.2 the SDK will provide a local files system on disk to allow for easier integration with IDE’s outside of the Eclipse environment as well as local copies of SDK docs, samples, and tools.
New Sample Wizard
We redesigned the New ArcGIS Samples for Android workflow and wizard. The new samples wizard works with samples in our ArcGIS for Android SDK Samples group on ArcGIS Online (hint: be sure to check the Show ArcGIS Desktop Content under All Results. This allows us the ability to update and add samples in between release which you can pick up in the Eclipse IDE.
We added support for x86 binaries which allows you to take advantage of Virtual Machine Acceleration. We have noticed a significant performance increase in our testing and hope you will enjoy the performance improvements in your testing as well.
SDK Eclipse plugin
The SDK Eclipse plugin is integrated into the downloaded SDK and also provided as a public url updatesite for direct integration within Eclipse. If you are familiar with installing Eclipse plugins you can use the update site URL as a new Remote Site in Eclipse Software Update dialog.

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.
We are pleased to announce the 10.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps provides a high performance mapping experience for modern apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT. The SDK is founded on an ArcGIS core runtime, built for the Windows Runtime, and provided for use by .NET developers. The beta release of the SDK includes support for building XAML/.NET Windows Store apps. Use the SDK to:
- Mash-up map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premise ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
- Search for features in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
- Sketch points, lines and polygons on the map
- Match addresses to locations (geocode) and locations to addresses (reverse-geocode)
- Generate routes and driving directions
- Use the geometry engine to perform geometric operations and compute spatial relationships between features
- Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
Download the SDK from the Esri Beta Community. To start, you’ll need an Esri Global account, registered with the Beta Community. Once registered, fill out a brief survey to be accepted into the beta program.

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.
With our recent release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android v10.1.1 we dropped support for Android 2.2 API level 8. This allowed us to move up our support level to Android 2.3.3 API level 10 which has almost half, 47.4%, of the Android platform distribution as of Jan. 3, 2013. This is causing projects built prior to v10.1.1 not to be recognized by our Eclipse feature tooling. Continue reading
