Richmond, VA – March 23, 2009 – Timmons Group, a leader in geospatial and engineering consulting services, announced today that Chris Gerecke, the Company’s Director of Enterprise Solutions, and Vish Uma, Geospatial Software Architect, will making a user presentation on March 25th titled “Harnessing Server Object Extensions” at the 2009 ESRI Developer Summit in Palm Springs, California. In addition to this presentation, Gerecke will also be demoing a real-world enterprise application built on ArcGIS Server 9.3.1 that demonstrates geodatabase feature editing and custom spatial validation.
Building Web-based enterprise GIS software presents some unique challenges and has added a twist to traditional GIS solutions. Based on its complexity and requirements, different techniques need to be used to solve these problems optimally. For some problems, geoprocessing tasks might be the right solution. But some other problems that involve domain/project-specific business rules and workflows can be tackled better with the use of Server Object Extensions (SOEs). SOEs provide developers with a fast, reliable, and scalable way of building GIS solutions using ArcGIS Server. This presentation will cover some of the finer points of developing SOEs and will present some Visual Studio project templates to make development a little bit easier. It will also cover wiring up a setup project for deploying SOEs. Finally, a RESTful service developed using SOEs and WCF to complement the ArcGIS Server REST API and enable editing data exposed in MapServices will be demonstrated.
