How to Use the Java Samples
This topic provides general information on how to use the Java command line and application samples. Additionally, each sample has a help topic with detailed instructions on how to use that particular sample.
The source code for Java samples is located throughout the 'developerkit/samples' folder in your ArcGIS install location. It is organized into top level folders such as Controls, Geodatabase, and so on. Each folder has a collection of zip files. The zip file names are composed of the sample name and the programming language. Thus you can find the DrawText sample in the Controls folder as DrawTextCSharp.zip, DrawTextJava.zip and others.
Also, from the Code Exchange on the ESRI Developer Network (EDN) Web site (http://edn.esri.com), you can view every sample page and download its associated source code files. The site also includes new samples added since the last release.
Before using the samples, your runtime environment must be set up. If you are a developer and have your development environment set up, you do not need to complete this step, as the development environment will allow samples to run.
Instructions for setting up your ArcGIS Java development/runtime environment can be found at: ArcGIS Engine Java Programming
