Errors, Errors and more Errors

In my line of work, I must have at least a working knowledge of each database management system (DBMS) supported by Esri. Other vendors require near-perfect database administrator (DBA) expertise. This means I am constantly looking at error messages.

Important deprecation announcement for ArcGIS 10.1 and the upcoming release of 10.2.1 / 10.2.2

At each release, Esri assesses if there are any platforms (operating systems, databases, development environments, or hardware) that are at the end of their supportability. Additionally, we review our technology to see if any of the newer functionality has superseded older functionality.

However, with the update to the Deprecation Plan for ArcGIS 10.1 and 10.2, plus the releases of ArcGIS 10.2.1 and 10.2.2, we have a number of items that need to be deprecated. Many of these changes have been a long time coming (for both platforms and functionality); and we have also noted upcoming plans to give you early notice for software that will eventually be impacted.
