The Runtime SDK group is excited to announce Example Applications! We want to show you the power of ArcGIS and the Runtime SDKs by building cool and useful open applications. Example Applications are open source applications built with the Runtime SDK that address real world geospatial needs based on use cases we’ve collected from internal and external stakeholders. These applications fill the gap between our SDK samples and Esri-supported production applications (e.g. Collector, Navigator, Survey 123). Each example application comes with documentation on how it connects to the larger ArcGIS platform via the SDK, from preparing and styling your maps and data with ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Pro to consuming them in the app itself.

The Qt Company’s Qt SDK offers a GeoServices location API, the QtLocation API, that helps developers create viable mapping solutions using location services from leading map data providers. Starting with the recent release of Qt 5.8, Esri became a full-fledged GeoServices provider as well, announcing their contribution at last year’s QtCon 2016 in Berlin, Germany. The QtLocation API allows you to display and interact with tiled basemaps, find places and addresses, and perform point to point routing.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java 100.0.0 now supports downloading the SDK through dependency management. Most projects are not self-contained, instead they require dependent libraries to be compiled or tested. In the case of ArcGIS Java projects the requirement includes a Java Jar file, native libraries, and resources. Furthermore, our Java Jar file has dependencies on third party SDK’s, these are called transitive dependencies. Dependency management can greatly simplify maintaining multi-module dependency projects and the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java now supports Gradle and Maven dependency management workflows.
