00:01This is the session on ArcGIS Runtime, Intro to ArcGIS Runtime 1.0. I saw a couple people just left.
00:07They probably saw the screen, thought, Hey, I thought it was Runtime 10.1. This is like, you know, 1.
00:14We've actually changed the way that the versioning's going to be numbered for ArcGIS Runtime. It is indeed, last I heard…
00:22…going to be ArcGIS Runtime 1.0 for the initial release, although the plan is to release it together with 10.1.
00:30We'll talk more about that later.
00:33My name is Gary Sheppard. I work for Esri in our Washington, DC, regional office, which is neither in DC…
00:42…nor is it a regional office; it's actually a federal office.
00:47We work with all parts of the federal government all over the country.
00:52I work in what we call our DC Technology Center, the DTC…
00:57…where we work with customers to help them understand how to better use the software.
01:04We build and present demonstrations and other presentations and otherwise, you know…
01:10…help our account managers to help their customers better understand how to use the software.
01:16So when our account managers have run out of big words, and they actually have to show something, that's where my group comes in.
01:23There's about 30 of us in our Tysons Corner, Virginia, office.
01:27And it sure is a pleasure to work for such a great company and with such great software like the new ArcGIS Runtime.
01:35Applause… No, I should've put up my--I don't have my applause banner on this computer, unfortunately, so we'll just proceed.
01:45Let's get started by…actually, let's get started by saying preliminaries.
01:51In case of emergency, exit, and also there's session evaluation forms on your chairs, on some of the chairs.
02:00They only gave me enough for about two out of every eight chairs.
02:05You'll notice there are more forms toward the back, because most people tend to sit in the back…
02:10…although you all are spatially inclined and distributed yourselves very nicely.
02:15There are also more forms on the right side because when people choose between left and right, they typically choose right.
02:23And, again, I was wrong. So anyway, find a form if you'd like to fill out an evaluation.
02:29I'm sure the company would appreciate your feedback. To be quite honest, I'll never see it, but hey.
02:37And if you do fill out a form, there are cardboard boxes outside in the hall for you to deposit the forms.
02:42I'm not talking about the ones that say "Paper," "Cans."
02:47There's specific boxes for the session evaluation forms, which you've been told already, so I'm wasting your time. I'm sorry.
02:56When building custom applications, you know, as…
03:00How many of us here are software developers? Raise your hand if you're a software developer.
03:03Wow. Okay, most of us. Great, good.
03:07When we build software, we're supposed to think about what our users want. That should be our primary focus.
03:13And what do our users want in software? Well, we could talk about all kinds of [unintelligible]...
03:17…and they want to create annotations and edit geodatabase feature classes and blah, blah, blah.
03:23But just in general. Think about yourself, the software you use. What do you want it to do?
03:29You want it to be simple. You don't want to have to take a lot of training to have to use software.
03:33You don't want to have to read a lot of help; I mean, some help is good, but software should be simple and intuitive.
03:41It should be quick. We shouldn't make our users wait for the software to run.
03:45And software should be beautiful. Think about the applications you like to use, you know.
03:50Nice web browsers, iTunes, things that are visually pleasing, users have this perception that they work better.
04:00These are things that users of software want.
04:04Developers want these things too. I mean, I want to build apps that look nice.
04:08I want to use developer tools that are simple to use as well.
04:14Now, with ArcGIS Runtime, the goal is, what if we can move away from…
04:21You know, traditionally GIS is very robust; it can do a lot of things, and that can lead to some drawbacks.
04:27It can be complicated to build stuff.
04:30Our applications can be slow, and eventually, our users can get disenchanted.
04:36ArcGIS Runtime can help you move away from slow, confusing applications and slow, confusing development as well…
04:46…into development that's easier and applications that are easier.
04:51A development process that's more nimble, allowing you to swap out different sections of your application...
04:57…different sections of your code, make things more plug and play.
05:01And really more exciting. I know that sounds kind of silly to you maybe, but honestly…
05:09…in a lot of ways, I'm a user of the software just like you.
05:11I know I work for the company, but I don't build the software that we actually sell.
05:15So in a lot of ways, I'm like you. I'm a developer/user of the software.
05:19And I have found, you know, these prerelease, beta, and daily builds of ArcGIS Runtime to be more interesting…
05:27…more exciting to use than offerings that we've had before for developers.
05:33So I think these are all good motivations for us to get to know ArcGIS Runtime and start using it.
05:41And that's what this session is about.
05:42You're not going to become an expert in ArcGIS Runtime, but what I'm hoping to do is give you the knowledge you need…
05:48…the tools you need to get started, so that you know where to go to get help if you want to use Runtime.
05:55These are the topics I want to discuss.
05:57We'll introduce ArcGIS Runtime, we'll talk about why it's simpler for development than some of the alternatives.
06:05We'll talk about the secret sauce; we'll talk about why is Runtime so good, how does it perform so well.
06:13We'll talk about some of the things Runtime can do, and then the last thing is I'm going to give you a mini list of…
06:20…here's some websites you can go to, to get started, here's what you really need if you want to get started with Runtime.
06:28Okay, first of all, what is ArcGIS Runtime?
06:33Well, ArcGIS Runtime at its heart is a set of binaries, libraries that can do the most common GIS functions…
06:43…as well as a runtime component that can do more advanced functionality like geoprocessing.
06:50Basically, a bunch of binaries, but more than that, ArcGIS Runtime includes tools to help you build applications with those binaries.
06:58So there's not an out-of-the-box ArcGIS Runtime application, although we are publishing some of those via our resource center.
07:06But the core product is a set of binaries and tools to help you build applications.
07:10Has anyone here used ArcGIS Engine? A few. How about MapObjects? A few again.
07:18Wow. I think more MapObjects than Engine. Huh. That's telling.
07:23In a lot of ways, I'd say Runtime is more like MapObjects than Engine, except it's new…
07:28…it works with the ArcGIS system; it's part of the ArcGIS system, whereas MapObjects was very different from the rest of ArcGIS.
07:37Even though it was simple, it was fast, but in terms of what kinds of data it could read and what kinds of geoprocessing…
07:45…and things it could do, it was very different from the rest of ArcGIS.
07:49Runtime is simple to use, kind of like MapObjects, but it can do a lot that's in the ArcGIS system, kind of like ArcGIS Engine.
07:56And we'll learn about all that over the next hour and three minutes. Here we go.
08:03Now, using these tools and these binaries, you can build all kinds of applications…
08:07…including desktop and laptop apps and mobile apps.
08:13Let's look at the platforms that are available and the APIs that we have.
08:17If you want to write Runtime applications for Desktop, you have three choices.
08:22You can build apps using Java, Qt--or in other words, Q-T. They say it--Nokia says it "cute." It's a C++ framework.
08:31And that window thing at the bottom is apparently the WPF logo. That's what I found on the Internet anyway.
08:39I'm not really a Microsoft programmer anyway, but WPF, which actually, believe it or not, is my favorite, even not being a…
08:47I'm a Java guy; I'm a Linux guy, and I really like WPF.
08:53Hi, I'm Gary, and I'm addicted to WPF. Alright. Java, Qt, WPF.
09:00If you're writing handheld applications, we have three platforms for that as well for ArcGIS Runtime…
09:06…Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
09:09And for those of you who have used our mobile APIs before, now you're really confused.
09:12"Hey, wait a minute. You've got, you know, the ArcGIS API for iOS, and now you've got ArcGIS Runtime for iOS. What the devil?"
09:22The answer to that is, we've just kind of renamed the mobile APIs.
09:27I don't know if that has taken effect on our website yet, but ArcGIS Runtime for iOS means the ArcGIS API for iOS.
09:37We've done that to indicate that all of these runtime APIs are intended to be similar in functionality and in structure and style…
09:47…very similarly named classes, methods, and interfaces so that, if I'm a Java developer and I learn the runtime API for Java…
09:56…back and forth, and suddenly I need to write an iPhone app, I'm not completely in the dark.
10:02Okay, I may not know how to actually write an iOS app, but once I do…
10:07…the ArcGIS part of it is simple 'cause I already know Runtime, even if it's in a different language.
10:13Does that make sense? Okay.
10:16So, yeah, on the handheld, Android, iOS, Windows Phone.
10:21We also have it for Windows Mobile, you know, somewhat older technology.
10:24I would say new development is probably going to be for Windows Phone.
10:29Does anyone have a Windows Phone, by the way? I thought not.
10:35Alright. The most popular programming languages out there. This is from a group called the TIOBE group…
10:44…and these are according to their sort of automated calculation via web searches and what content is out there on the web…
10:55…these are the five most popular programming languages this month.
10:59I actually had a slide like this--it was from December--and since then, C# has overtaken C++.
11:05So it used to be C++ in number 3, C# in number 4, and they have swapped.
11:11Now I know there's one angry VB developer in here, and there's one angry Perl--and I know there's a Python developer…
11:19Hi, Rick, Rich. How you doin'?
11:21…who are thinking, How dare you not put my language on your list, Gary Sheppard? I'm so upset with you.
11:28Not my list. But these supposedly are the most popular programming languages.
11:34How many of these are we supporting with ArcGIS Runtime? All except plain C; sorry.
11:42C is a great language for, I don't know, compilers, very low-level code.
11:47ArcGIS Runtime is really about applications. It's not about building system code.
11:53It's not about building services either.
11:56We have a product for that; it's called ArcGIS Server.
12:00ArcGIS Runtime is really about building end-user applications…
12:05…and for the most popular languages being used right now for end-user apps, we're supporting all of them.
12:12By the way, in case you didn't know, Objective-C is the language that you use…
12:15…to build iOS applications for the iPhone, the iPad, the iPod touch.
12:23Alright. Let's talk about how Runtime makes your life simpler in terms of development.
12:31Just as a little brain teaser here, I know some of you said you've used ArcGIS Engine before.
12:38Maybe some of you have used ArcObjects in Engine or Desktop or Server.
12:45Thinking about…this may not be an exact measure of how complicated or simple an API is, but…
12:54…how many classes and interfaces do you think there are in ArcObjects?
12:59And I just, it was easy to get a list of the classes and interfaces in the ArcObjects 10 Java API. Any guesses?
13:07[Audience comment] Too many. [Inaudible] 2,000.
13:10Two thousand? Any other guesses?
13:12[Simultaneous audience comments] Five thousand. Twenty thousand.
13:13Twenty thousand? Wow. Twenty thousand. Oh, I didn't think anyone would say it.
13:19It's between those. Almost 13,000 classes, okay?
13:25Based on that, how many of you know, how many of you are expert in 5 percent of those classes? Anyone? Not me.
13:32Anybody in 1 percent of them?
13:35Okay. Does anyone happen to have a guess on how many classes are in the…
13:42…now this is beta 2, so this will change slightly before release…
13:45…but the ArcGIS Runtime Java API? This will be similar to what WPF and Qt are as well.
13:54[Audience comment] Hundred and twenty-nine.
13:55Hundred and twenty-nine? That's a good guess. That's in the right ballpark.
13:59Three hundred and seventy-nine classes and interfaces, so much simpler to use, although, believe it or not…
14:07…you can do just about everything with Runtime that you can do with those 13,000 classes.
14:14It's all about not having--it's all about doing more GIS work in your GIS and then taking that over to Runtime…
14:22…and just doing your application development using Runtime and leveraging what you did in your GIS.
14:29We'll talk about that later.
14:31The point of this is, you know, I can learn 5 percent of 379 classes.
14:37You know, you can master this the way that you really can't master ArcObjects.
14:43Add to that the fact that ArcGIS Runtime is brand-new, built from the ground up, not based on ArcObjects.
14:49You know, native code, no more COM. Applause.
14:54It's a much simpler, not only much simpler to learn it but to actually get the dadgum thing working.
15:04Alright. ArcGIS Runtime is patterned after the web APIs.
15:14Then you already have, if you raised your hand, you already have a good start to learning ArcGIS Runtime…
15:20…because we patterned the classes, interfaces, and methods and just overall basic development strategy on the web APIs.
15:30You have a map control; you can add layers to that map.
15:33You can run tasks. There are some widgets available depending on which API you're using.
15:38And that's probably the one…
15:40You know, maps, layers, and tasks you're going to find about the same classes between all the different runtime APIs.
15:47Widgets may be a little different. We have a lot more widgets, for example, in WPF than we have for Java…
15:56…and more in Java than we have for Qt, or "cute."
16:01By the way, most of what I'm going to talk about today applies directly to the desktop runtime APIs--Java, Qt, WPF.
16:11A lot of these principles also apply to the handheld runtimes, but I'm focusing more on the new desktop runtimes.
16:22So what the heck do you install anyway?
16:25Well, ArcGIS Runtime, you install an SDK, and that SDK is designed to help you do two things…
16:31…learn ArcGIS Runtime and build stuff with ArcGIS Runtime.
16:37The SDKs help you learn Runtime because they contain all kinds of documentation and samples.
16:44The documentation has conceptual docs; you know, in other words, you can read, it's like reading a book…
16:51…kind of like what we have for ArcGIS. You can just read the material, you can search it and learn how to use it.
16:58We also have the API reference for each language, so if you're a Java developer, Javadocs.
17:04If you're a C++ developer, we have a help file, you know, it's a QCH file that you open right there in Qt Creator.
17:13If you're a WPF developer, there's a help…
17:19Again, pardon me, I'm not a very good Microsoft developer--but that integrates with Visual Studio so you…
17:25…just like in Qt Creator, you put your cursor on the class name, you press F1 and up comes the help just like you would expect.
17:35So the SDKs really are good for helping you to learn how to use Runtime.
17:44A lot of the material found in the SDK that you install is also found on the resource center.
17:50And I apologize; those links are pretty small to see.
17:53But right now, we have two resource centers.
17:56Resources.arcgis.com always contains content for the current release of ArcGIS, which right now is version 10…
18:06…which you wouldn't know from the Plenary Session yesterday, because 10.1 actually isn't out yet.
18:13It's in prerelease; a lot of you have access. Anyone use 10.1 yet? Good.
18:19That's important, 'cause you're going to need 10.1 to use Runtime.
18:24You don't have to, but I'll show you what you do in ArcGIS, and you'll need 10.1.
18:29So if you want to learn about Runtime right now, you need to go to resourcesbeta.arcgis.com.
18:38At some point, when 10.1 and when ArcGIS Runtime are released, this content will move to resources.arcgis.com…
18:45…the main resource center site.
18:48Let's look a little bit at the SDK content for learning to use ArcGIS Runtime.
19:02Go to a browser and open the beta resource center; again, resourcesbeta.arcgis.com…
19:14…and here, we're going to be able to navigate to the ArcGIS Runtime resource center.
19:21I have to teach you how to do it; we couldn't make things that easy…
19:25…that we would just have a link that says ArcGIS Runtime, I guess.
19:30Click on Developers, here at the bottom, and then we're going to…
19:36Yeah, you can see how easy it is that I'm referring to my notes to figure out how to do this.
19:40And they've changed it since last week. Fantastic.
19:44Here are the different platforms for ArcGIS Runtime.
19:48I'm just going to click on Java; again, we could click on any of these.
19:54And this has information for all different kinds of Java developers--Engine, Server, and the new Runtime.
20:05So let's go to the Java runtime. Okay.
20:11This is where we can get the different kinds of documentation I mentioned--concepts, API reference.
20:17If we go to Concepts, it's this--oh, yeah, you got to log in.
20:22This is one important thing about the resourcesbeta site; you have to be part of the beta program.
20:27If you're not part of the beta program, see your Esri account representative…
20:33…or you can go to betacommunity.esri.com to sign up if you are a customer.
20:41And if you're not a customer, why are you here? No.
20:44Alrighty. We've got the conceptual documentation for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java.
20:54If you want to get started, of course, installation and setup and the Getting Started section.
20:59For example, you want to figure out, How do I install the SDK? Learn how to install the SDK.
21:05It's just an installer; no big deal there.
21:08What's a bigger deal for you Java develop--any Java developers? Yeah. The few and the proud.
21:15Installing the Eclipse plug-in. We do have an Eclipse plug-in, much to my chagrin; I'm a NetBeans fan.
21:21But the Eclipse plug-in is pretty helpful if you are an Eclipse developer of Java.
21:28And it tells you here how to go to the update site, which seems like they change this every month or two…
21:37…as to whether we're going to host it online or is it going to be part of the installed SDK.
21:41I think the final decision was it's a part of the installed SDK, so it tells you how to navigate to that.
21:47Anyway, so there's similar information depending on if you are--actually, if you're developing with Visual Studio…
21:53…you barely need this because it just…you run the WPF SDK installer, and Visual Studio just picks it up.
22:02You don't really have to do anything.
22:04If you're a Qt developer, by which I mean Q-t--it's always awkward to say.
22:11If you are a Qt developer--we'll just put it that way--then in Qt Creator…
22:15…there's a page like this on our Runtime Qt page to show you how to set it up in Qt Creator.
22:25Alright. If you've installed it and you want to actually build some applications, we can, for example…
22:33…navigate down to how to create an application--Creating a Java Map Application…
22:40…and it will step you through, step by step, here's what we do to create a new project; here's how we add, you know…
22:49So we'll get this map application and you can read other how-tos on how to add a layer to the map.
22:58And, oh. Looks like you'll be able to at some point, but they're blank at the moment.
23:02See, it's beta. When this is released, there will be more content available.
23:08Now, there are also samples available, which we'll look at in just a moment here.
23:17First let's take a quick look at the API reference; this is, you know…
23:21Java developers, you'll be immediately familiar with this format; this is the Javadoc format, so you can, for example, go down…
23:28Oh. This is a good thing to know--Jmap.
23:31If you just try to add a thing called "map" to your application, you're going to go crazy.
23:36You know, "Why don't they just have a map class?"
23:39And I guess it was to avoid conflicting with the map class that's part of the JDK, we named this one Jmap.
23:48But in the other APIs for Runtime, typically this is just called Map or Mapview in some cases…
23:56…but in the Java one, they named it Jmap. Just so you know.
24:02Alrighty. Now I mentioned samples as well.
24:05There's actually an application where we can look at the samples; not just the code, but also the live running app.
24:14So we go under ArcGIS in our programs; see my Runtime SDKs, all three of them?
24:19We'll go to the Java one, ArcGIS Runtime Java samples.
24:24This is an app that opens and it'll have a variety of applications that we can, like I said, look at the code…
24:32…and also look at the live running app. Hopefully.
24:41Right before this session, I discovered that my machine had decided to do a backup…
24:46…and I thought, Yeah, I always back up my machine at one fifteen in the afternoon.
24:52Okay, finally it came up.
24:54We have various samples; let's just look at a couple of them.
25:00Dynamic and tiled layer. This is sort of a Hello, World for ArcGIS Runtime.
25:06So it's going to add a couple of map services, in this case.
25:11ArcGIS Runtime can work with--it works very well with ArcGIS Server, but it also can work with local content as well…
25:19…and we'll talk more about that later.
25:21In this case, these are services. And we're zooming in…
25:27By the way, the ArcGIS Runtime for Java, the map control is being reengineered.
25:34The development team wanted to write this in pure Java; the performance suffers a little bit…
25:41…and they said, No, dang it. We're going to do it in pure Java.
25:45And some people got in trouble and plans were changed.
25:51No, I don't know. I don't think anybody got in trouble, but they realized that sometimes you need native code.
25:57So there is a native component, but it's not COM, it's not like ArcObjects; it's regular old JNI.
26:05It's not anything complicated, not anything that the end developer even has to worry about.
26:11But that is not available in beta yet, so this is using the old Java map control, but the API is the same.
26:18So let's look at the code to see what this looks like.
26:22Remain…nothing special there; we create a new application object.
26:27Okay, here we create our Java map, our Jmap component, which is created here. A new Jmap.
26:39We add a listener. The map control has these listeners that let you listen for all kinds of events.
26:45For example, so for people who don't do Java, like if you do WPF, .NET development…
26:53…this is the same as saying, you know, map.mapReady plus equals and then the name of some method that you create.
27:01Java doesn't let you have a method point or a function point or like that; you have to have this whole new class…
27:07…but good news is, we added the mapReady listener here to this same anonymous class.
27:13We could've added another listener method as well.
27:17So this is saying when the map is ready, go ahead and set the extent of the map to this new envelope.
27:26This business here, I think it would've been just as easy just to say Map, since they declared it final, but who am I to argue?
27:35They go ahead and set the initial extent for the map to a bounding box, coordinates. These are in meters.
27:41You'll notice that a lot of the examples use data that's in the web Mercator spatial reference, projection.
27:50That's kind of the standard that we and Google and everyone have sort of settled on.
27:57Not an official standard, but the web Mercator projection looks good for almost every map…
28:04…and is in meters; it looks good in most parts of the world.
28:08So try to use web Mercator when you can, and when you can't, that's fine.
28:13There's a projection engine in ArcGIS Runtime, you can use it.
28:16But, you know, projection takes time. It's not the slowest thing in ArcGIS, for sure…
28:21…but if you want to squeeze every bit of performance out of your application…
28:25…you always want to use the same projection for all your data when you can. It's not always possible. Anyway, web Mercator.
28:34Here's where we add the layers. New tiled map service layer, tiled meaning cached, of course.
28:40They just used an ArcGIS Online service here.
28:44One kind of goofy thing I found about the Java API, rather than just saying map.addLayer…
28:50…you have to say map.getLayers, and it returns you this thing called a layer list, and to that, you add your layer.
28:58Wasted about 10 minutes once looking for that; "why doesn't the map have just an addLayer?"
29:05But this is how it is. You get the layers, you add layers to it.
29:09DynamicLayer. Again, this is for a map service, which is not cached, and they used a URL for that as well. Pretty simple.
29:19Let's look at a different example; it does something a little more interesting perhaps.
29:23LocationToAddress. Let's look at the running application first.
29:28We can look at this map of San Francisco using a map service. We can click a point to get the address of that point.
29:45Now that is known as reverse geocoding, where you take a location, say, "What's the address?"
29:51We could go the other way as well, but in this case, we chose a point, and it told us, oh, it's 860 Howard Street.
29:57And the way that works is--one moment please--you know what. This thing insists. It's not showing itself, so fine. Alright.
30:16OnMouseClick. So this is just an event listener on our--oh, interesting. They extended mapOverlay. That's right.
30:26MapOverlay is a class in the Java Runtime API that lets you listen for events on the map…
30:36…so rather than having to roll your own, you know, get into the Swing listeners and everything…
30:40…this lets you just listen for mouse clicks and things on the map.
30:46When we get a point, we use a new locator object. This is using a geocode server URL.
30:56This is one of the types of services you can serve from ArcGIS Server, and this is something else…
31:00…that you can do with local content that we'll talk about in a little bit here, but you can also do it with services.
31:05That's the simple way; that's the way we did it here.
31:09And you just run locationToAddress, the point that was clicked, a tolerance in pixels, and the input and output spatial references.
31:21And once we get that back, we can create a graphic.
31:26Now, a graphic in ArcGIS Runtime is a geometry that we can put on the map. It can also have attributes associated with it.
31:38And let's see. What was it they did…screenPoint. I think they… Oh, yeah. That's right. They put the little pop-up.
31:48And this AddressInfoPopupFactory, this is an example of part of the widgets in ArcGIS Runtime.
31:55So this is a part, this AddressInfoPopupFactory, may or may not be part of the WPF runtime or the Qt runtime.
32:04This may just be in the Java one.
32:05Our goal is to have all our runtime APIs equivalent at some point, but right now, they're all in different stages of development.
32:13The Java one happens to have this ability to put up a pop-up like this address info pop-up.
32:20As you look at the documentation for the Java runtime, you'll see references to "toolkit."
32:28Whenever it says "toolkit," it's talking about these widgets that are kind of Java only.
32:34And WPF has some of those as well, and I don't think Qt has any of those yet, but it will.
32:40So that's some basics on that sample.
32:43So what we've done here is look a little bit at the SDK, we looked at the documentation…
32:46…and looked at a few of the samples that are available.
32:52Let's go back to the slides. Alright.
32:58I mentioned that the SDKs help you to learn ArcGIS Runtime, and even after you've learned it…
33:04…there are some tools for helping you build applications.
33:09I mentioned how Runtime integrates into IDEs--Visual Studio 2010, Eclipse, and Qt Creator.
33:19We looked at some of the samples already. There are also some tools that you use.
33:22There's an authorization wizard; there's at least one person in the room groaning right now…
33:28…"Authorization? That sounds like licensing." Yes, sorry, there's licensing.
33:32There are some things you can actually do without a license--basic mapping, using ArcGIS Server services…
33:38…some of that stuff you need no license.
33:40It's when you want to use local content like map packages and geoprocessing packages that you'll need a license.
33:45So what you do is install the SDK, run the authorization tool with your license file.
33:52Now you're not going to have to run that authorization wizard on your end users' machines.
34:00That's one of the beautiful parts about Runtime.
34:03Even when you want to use licensed content on someone's machine, it's just a string that you put in your application.
34:09You could store that in a config file; you can just embed it, you know, hard code it right into the app. However you want to do it.
34:16So you give the end user the app, and they don't need to install or license anything.
34:21They just need files on their system, and it just runs.
34:27The license viewer is just a--I'll show it to you in a bit. It's just a way for you to get that license string.
34:33In fact, it gives it to you in code. Oh, I'm using .NET, I'm using Runtime with Spatial Analyst…
34:38…you know, copy and paste the .NET code to put into your WPF app in order to authorize that.
34:48The deployment tool--and I'm jumping around a little bit; I realize my order is bad on these slides.
34:54The deployment tool we'll talk about in a bit, 'cause I didn't tell you about what you would use the deployment tool for.
35:03Point is, there are tools that help you build your applications.
35:07Traditionally, deploying an app can be somewhat complicated. Think of ArcGIS Engine, for example.
35:16And I realize I'm going to get in trouble for competing against our own software; that's not my intent.
35:21You know, Engine is good for what it was built for, which is full ArcGIS functionality…
35:26…and be able to write every single line of code to do every single part of ArcGIS.
35:30In order to do that, your end users have to install ArcGIS Runtime. They have to license ArcGIS Runtime.
35:37You have to deploy the app. Sometimes you have to register stuff, et cetera, et cetera.
35:42It can be difficult. And even non-ArcGIS apps--
35:47I mean, we've all written software that works great on our machine, and then it's difficult to deploy to others' machines.
35:54ArcGIS Runtime is meant to be simpler.
35:57When you create your deployment package--and by this, I just mean a box of stuff, just…
36:02…this could be a ZIP file, it could be files on a network share; you know, whatever, it's just a bunch of files that need to be copied over…
36:08…including, obviously, your application and a .exe, or if you're in Java, probably a .jar.
36:17The Runtime libraries, some basic library files, either DLLs or JARs for Java.
36:26I guess we're going to have a DLL for Java eventually as well because it's JNI, but that's okay.
36:32Or if you're on Linux--by the way, this runs on Linux--so .so files if you're on Linux.
36:38The Runtime deployment, and that is what we use to use local content like map packages and geoprocessing packages…
36:49…and whatever data you might need, you could bundle that together with the app if it's feasible.
36:54In some cases, you're just going to have a connection an ArcSDE database somewhere or maybe some web content.
37:05But the point is, it's just a bunch of files that you need to put on the user's system, no installation or registration necessary.
37:12Let's take a look at building stuff with the ArcGIS Runtime SDK.
37:18Alright. Microsoft fans, your time has arrived. This is Visual Studio.
37:24And I actually like Visual Studio a lot even though I'm a Java guy.
37:29I think of the IDEs I've used, Visual Studio is definitely it.
37:37We're going to create a new project.
37:40I've previously installed the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF.
37:47I'm going to create a new project. It's going to think about it.
37:52You know, when we go to create a new project in Visual Studio, we can choose all kinds of Visual C# applications.
37:59One of them is, under ArcGIS, we can choose a WPF app.
38:04If we go under Other Languages, we would see a similar thing for VB .NET, by the way, if there are any VB fans.
38:11But we'll just use C#, 'cause that's what I'm used to using.
38:14We could name our application; we'll just leave the default name.
38:20And as we create this application, it's going to spin up an app for us that already has an ArcGIS Runtime map control in it.
38:33Wonder if my machine insisted on that backup that I tried to cancel? We'll see. I do have a lot of dev tools open, don't I?
38:46When this comes up, it's going to be an app that we can just run.
38:49It's going to hit ArcGIS Online services.
38:51You guys know about the ArcGIS Online service directory, services.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest?
39:00And that gives you the ability to look at all the different ArcGIS Online services that we have.
39:05Those are great for testing, even for use. I mean, we have some great basemaps that you're free to use in your applications.
39:17Okay. Project creation successful. I'll just take their word for it as stuff keeps spinning.
39:22Let's open this MainWindow.xaml. Application.xaml isn't very interesting. It just says, "Run MainWindow.xaml."
39:34MainWindow.xaml, when this comes up, it'll give us the GUI view as well as the actual XAML…
39:41...and with any luck…yeah, come on, do it. This should show us a map in just a moment here.
39:50It's kind of cool, that right inside Visual Studio, it actually has the real map control, and sometimes it shows…
39:59Oh, you know what? All the layers are commented out. No wonder it didn't show our map yet.
40:05Okay. In the XAML--and for those who aren't familiar with WPF, like myself…
40:12…XAML is one way that you can design the user interface, the GUI, in a WPF application.
40:21In XAML, we have an Esri:Map tag; that's the map control for the Runtime for WPF.
40:29We have a bunch of commented-out layers. Let's go ahead and uncomment this map service layer…
40:41…and yeah, it shows up right there in the IDE; that's kind of nice.
40:46Let's go ahead and run this app, see what it looks like.
41:04Okay, good. I was about to start singing.
41:08We have a map of the world. It even wraps around the dateline…
41:12…similar to stuff that we saw in the web APIs yesterday in the Plenary Session.
41:17Mouse wheel, of course, zooms in and out. We can also do the Shift and zoom, and we can probably…
41:28Yeah. We can look at DC if we want to.
41:30So this is a very basic, out-of-the-box application. We could add stuff on top of this if we wanted to.
41:39In fact, let's go ahead and add some local content.
41:45Now, some local content you need the Runtime deployment that I haven't really talked much about yet…
41:50…and we only have 30 minutes to go. My goodness.
41:53But some local content you can use just with the basic Runtime libraries, and that would include tile packages.
42:02I have a path to a tile package. Tile packages are new at 10.1, I think. This is where you can have…
42:16…in ArcMap, you can say, you know, share as tile package, and it generates a cache of your map right there from ArcMap.
42:24You don't need ArcGIS Server to do that anymore with 10.1.
42:28It creates this TPK file. It's really like a ZIP file that has all the cache tiles in it.
42:35You can choose which levels to cache it at and everything.
42:39Let's see. Local Tiled Basemap Layer. We're going to uncomment this line, and path...
42:47...I'm thinking that'll be the right place to put this.
42:52So we paste in our path to a TPK that I generated previously from a basemap in ArcMap.
43:02So from an MXD, I shared it as a tile package, and now it's a layer on this map.
43:09By the way, right here in the GUI--not all of the different layer types will show up right here in the GUI, just a few of them.
43:16Tile package I don't think will, but as we zoom in, we will get to see--I hope. Let's see.
43:38Yeah, there it is. Okay, this is the Washington, DC, regional office for Esri, and so this is a cached basemap that we created.
43:49Look how nice the map looks. I mean, it was made in ArcMap.
43:54Whatever cartography you can do in ArcMap, you can do that with Runtime.
43:58The fastest way for maps that are never going to change is create this tile package, create the cache.
44:05You can also create a map package. If you share your map as a map package, you can open it here as well.
44:12The only thing about the map package is you need the Runtime deployment.
44:16That's the licensed portion of ArcGIS Runtime, which I'm going to show you in a little bit here.
44:22Okay. Alright. We looked at event handlers before; I'm actually going to skip that in this app because we talked about it.
44:32We could say, for example, when this application opens, let's zoom straight to our campus map here.
44:42In the interest of time, we're going to skip that, move along.
44:48Okay. The secret sauce of Runtime. Why does Runtime perform so well?
44:53Our goals for performance were not only to make it fast but also to make it small…
44:58…so it doesn't take a whole lot of CPU or memory or even disk space.
45:03And we've done a pretty good job.
45:04I mean, if you deploy every single thing in Runtime, the entire Runtime component, it's about a quarter of a gig total…
45:16…but that's for everything.
45:18One nice thing about Runtime is that it's modular; you only have to deploy what you actually need.
45:23So a typical deployment of Runtime, all zipped up, even if you need local content, is about 70 meg.
45:30If you don't need local content, it's stupid small. It's like 10 megabytes or less, so it's pretty cool.
45:41We're going to take a quick look at ArcGIS Runtime performance.
45:44We have an app that we built partially to show off the performance of ArcGIS Runtime.
45:51And my machine's having a little trouble, so I don't know if this is going to be the best demo ever.
45:59We're going to run a simulator first. How many of you saw the afternoon Plenary Session yesterday? Anybody?
46:05Anybody see my Runtime demo? Anybody clap for that?
46:09No, put your hands down. You didn't. Well, I guess you clapped at the end. Thank you.
46:14We're going to choose--okay. So we have this simulator that is going to push points out to our app once we start the app.
46:23Oh, my word. Okay. We'll do this one. Start it running, one point per second.
46:35Now we're going to run our Runtime application.
46:37This is Qt Creator, also known as "Q-t" Creator, for building C++ cross-platform applications, meaning apps that…
46:48…you know, I can compile and run in Windows; I can recompile the same code on Linux, and it just works.
46:56And I've just got to know what is going on. My…okay. Exit for real this time. Yeah.
47:23Well, I'm glad I could show off the performance of ArcGIS Runtime here.
47:29Oh, I had a session this morning where we had not exactly the same trouble…
47:34…but you know, when you've tested something 20 times and then people are looking at it, it causes trouble?
47:42I think once this comes up, it's actually going to look okay. Oh, it came up. Oh, it… User error. Alright.
47:52So this is this Runtime app that we showed, the same app that we showed yesterday in our Plenary Session…
47:57…built for in-vehicle military use; that's not important right now.
48:00Point is, we can rotate the map, we can follow along, we can do whatever we need to do, we can switch out the basemap…
48:07…and performance is pretty good. Now, we're pushing one point per second to this app. Let's do a hundred.
48:19And in a moment here, the country's going to start to fill up with points; this is Afghanistan, by the way.
48:28And we still have the same access that we had before. We can navigate around, no trouble at all.
48:34Let's look at our…I'm just curious; I actually don't know what this is going to say.
48:41Vehicle Commander. So this is taking 117 meg of memory, so maybe not the lightest-weight application…
48:50…but considering this machine has 4 gigs on it, it's not bad for what it's doing. Also, 10 percent of the CPU.
48:59I'm just curious to see what happens if we turn down the simulator. What's this going to do?
49:06Back to one per second, but we still have a bunch of points on the map.
49:13Now, about the same usage. Well, the CPU went down just a tad.
49:18Anyhow, anyone tried to do anything like this in Engine? Anybody? I have. You did? Yeah, yeah.
49:29[Sound] Not going to happen within 120 megabytes of memory.
49:35So this is--maybe it's not, you know, everyone's magical answer to everything, but this is a huge step forward…
49:42…for being able to develop these real-time apps that've got to keep responding…
49:48…and not freeze up and not wait to draw the maps. Okay.
49:54Alright. Turn that simulator off before the IT folks come in here and arrest me or something. Alright.
50:06Now, how does Runtime perform so well? Runtime is an application that can--oh, excuse me.
50:15The applications you build with Runtime can get content and functionality from a variety of sources…
50:21…to include ArcGIS Server, which of course then you're offloading to ArcGIS Server, or the Runtime deployment…
50:29…which is also called--I don't know if we're calling it this officially or in the documentation…
50:34…but the class name is called local server. Remember that. Local server.
50:39It's because this Runtime deployment is like a little ArcGIS Server.
50:44Now don't get carried away. You're not going to be able to use it instead of ArcGIS Server.
50:47It's not ArcGIS Server for cheap.
50:49It's meant to be used just by an application on your local machine, but because of that, it divides up the work.
50:56You have your application, your UI remains responsive. If there's heavy stuff that has to be done, give that to the local server to do.
51:07Now, there are a lot of things you can do with Runtime without the local server.
51:10By the way, the local server is the licensed component of ArcGIS Runtime.
51:14You can use ArcGIS Server, to include ArcGIS Online; you can read tile packages; and you can use a lot of the API…
51:21…you know, create graphics and zoom, pan, whatever you need to do manipulating the map. You don't need the local server for that.
51:30Where you need the local server is if you want to use any of these three types of packages.
51:35Map packages, which is when you take an MXD, you share it as a map package…
51:39…and it has the MXD and the data and everything all wrapped into a ZIP file.
51:45If you want to open that and display it, you need the local server.
51:48Also, if you want to use a locator package for geocoding and reverse geocoding.
51:53Or, if you want to use a geoprocessing package. And this one is new at ArcGIS 10.1.
51:58You run a geoprocessing model or tool, you take the results of that and share as geoprocessing package.
52:08With geoprocessing, there are three extensions available--3D, Spatial, and Network.
52:13I'll show you how the licensing works for those in just a moment.
52:17To license the local server, it's very simple.
52:20As I mentioned before, as a developer, you run your authorization wizard once, and then you can use the license viewer…
52:28…just to get the string that you need; it's just a license string to be able to authorize the local server.
52:36Let's have a look at that.
52:39Okay, we're going to open the license viewer.
52:41We're assuming here I've installed ArcGIS Runtime SDK and I have authorized it, I have run this software authorization wizard.
52:53That should be a one-time run there.
52:56What we might use more often are these other tools. The license viewer--excuse me.
53:05Alright. And I apologize, the text is pretty small for reading there; I couldn't change that.
53:14'Cause this is not a custom app; this comes with ArcGIS Runtime, which is a type of license that we want to see.
53:22Let's leave it on Deployment so that you guys can have a laugh here in just a minute.
53:27Let's choose C#. Ha-ha. The license string is No license available.
53:31That's because we don't have deployment licenses yet for ArcGIS Runtime. We will before the final release.
53:38For now, all we have available is testing, or in other words, development licenses.
53:42Anyone remember from my Plenary Session demo yesterday when there was a little pop-up that said…
53:48…Oh, you're using a developer license.
53:50I was like, oh, yeah, thanks a lot. I see that.
53:53That's because I was using a development license.
53:56Once you go to deploy your software, use the deployment license string, and then you won't get that warning anymore.
54:06By the way, that license message is only going to appear when you're using a development license…
54:13…and when you start the local server component.
54:16If you're just looking at cached maps or services, you don't need to worry about that.
54:22And by the way, you can open--
54:23Once that warning message appears, you can open a variety of map packages, GP packages, whatever you need.
54:32You're only going to get that warning pop-up once every time you run the application.
54:38Not a big deal, because you're not going to deploy this with a developer license, are you? Of course you wouldn't, no.
54:44Alright. So this is how you would license the local server if you're in C#...
54:49…LocalServer.SetLicense and this ugly license string.
54:53Good thing is we can copy this.
54:58VB .NET--oh, how about that? I think it's identical.
55:02Java, slightly different. C++, slightly different.
55:08We can also add on extensions, so pass an array of license strings, which, so far…
55:14…has not yet been worked out for our C++ runtime so those are grayed out. Coming soon; that'll be ready for release.
55:22This is beta software.
55:23Alright. I copied the C# license string; I actually don't need it 'cause I have a prebuilt app I'm going to show you.
55:38Going to try to show you.
55:42This is the--let's see, if you were in the Plenary Session yesterday, you saw me run a hydrology analysis application.
55:50Click a point and it calculates a watershed.
55:54Okay. Let's look at the code behind, so for those who aren't familiar with WPF, you've got XAML…
56:04…which is your UI; you've got C# code on the back end, and that's where you can do your custom work.
56:17Separates presentation from logic, how about that? Alrighty.
56:25MainWindow constructor. This is where we say-- Oh, yeah. This is kind of interesting.
56:32I mentioned that there's the local server component; that's a bunch of binaries that if you're deploying…
56:41…like, 10 Runtime apps to someone's machine, you might want to use the same local server. You know, there's just one copy of it.
56:48And if that's the case, then you might want to say LocalServer.InstallDirectory is a static property here…
56:55…so you just tell it where it is. And in this case, I leveraged the Settings, .Settings file, the app config in .NET…
57:03…which I think is pretty nice, to tell it where the local server is, where that stuff actually is.
57:12I'll show you what that looks like in just a minute.
57:17So I set the license string where? We've got a runtime license string…
57:23Well, let's open the settings so you see what I did, which I think is kind of maybe a good idea…
57:29…so that if you happen to have a license…
57:33You know, one thing that's funny about working for Esri is I don't ever have to learn how real licensing works.
57:40I have unlimited licenses for all of our software that expires on a certain date in case I quit, you know. I know.
57:49So I think some of you have licenses with an expiration date; some of you have licenses that never expire.
57:55This is in case--you know, I had this idea of putting the license string in a config file…
58:02…so that you don't have to give a whole new app to the user.
58:06You just say, "here's the new config file," or "here's the string to put in the config file."
58:12Visual Studio not responding, not cooperating, and this looks terrible in this browser resolution.
58:19Excuse me--screen resolution. See how I've got--wowie.
58:27Well, the third and fourth items down is where I've got my licenses.
58:32For the Runtime license itself, I just said, you know, of type string.
58:36For the extensions, I made it of type string array or string collection or whatever that thing is…
58:42…so that I could have 3D and Spatial and Network or one or two of those if I want.
58:49So I just read from the settings in my C# code, and I set that, LocalServer.SetLicense. Alright.
59:03And if we run it, then it's going to come up.
59:10I also want to take a minute to show you the deployment tool here…
59:14…although I'm not actually going to create a deployment based on the way my machine is running right now.
59:22So while that's starting up--oh, it's already here. I'll start the deployment tool just so we have it handy.
59:28Okay, we got the warning. You might've noticed, there was a little delay on that pop-up.
59:37I actually coded that into my app for demo purposes.
59:40Once you start the local server, first thing that's going to happen, bam. This little pop-up.
59:45Again, if you're using a developer license. Once you deploy this to your end users, you don't need to worry about that.
59:52So these buttons are grayed out right now because I'm actually still waiting for the geoprocessing package to open.
59:59I used code to say, you know, new local geoprocessing task, gave it the path to my GPK file, my geoprocessing package…
1:00:10…and it's opening that right now, in theory.
1:00:14Once that's open, I set up the buttons to become nongray. Not so confident of this right now, but maybe, maybe…
1:00:26…this'll let us look at the code for it, which is more interesting for this crowd, I think.
1:00:32Where, oh where did I put that? Don't do this.
1:00:54A lot of the stuff in ArcGIS Runtime is asynchronous so that you can start things in the background like the local server component…
1:01:01…or start a call to a long geoprocessing task and not lock out the user from navigating a wicked fast map.
1:01:11Okay. So in that sense, it's a lot like web programming.
1:01:16Fire off a request, user can still use the app, response comes back, it's displayed on the map.
1:01:23And in C# and Java and Qt, that's all handled with event handlers, and in Qt it's signals and slots and good stuff.
1:01:33Once the initialize is done, going to check to make sure the local server actually started, so we check for Valid.
1:01:42If not, we tell them, hey, it doesn't work.
1:01:45Otherwise, gpService, which is of type LocalGeoprocessingService, .StartAsync.
1:01:53And sometime previously, we just, yeah, gpService and we gave it--again, I used the Settings file, a path to a GPK file.
1:02:03We start this asynchronously. Once it's done, we go through the different tasks.
1:02:08I happen to know there's only one in this geoprocessing package.
1:02:13And I simply say, enable all these buttons.
1:02:17And this is a WPF thing, Dispatcher.Invoke, to make sure that you're doing UI code on the UI thread.
1:02:26It's similar to in Java, you use a similar technique.
1:02:29'Cause you have to manipulate the UI on the UI thread, not in this listener thread.
1:02:39Alright. The app started okay, finally started working.
1:02:44We'll start that watershed running, hopefully.
1:02:51And while that's running, I just want to show you the deployment tool.
1:02:56 This is the deployment tool that's part of the Runtime SDK.
1:03:00We can create a configuration. I have a bunch of them already done, but I can say, you know…
1:03:06…this is going to be my 32 bit with Network Analyst.
1:03:14And I will confess, this deployment tool is a bit buggy in beta here; it'll be fixed in time for final.
1:03:23It tends to crash, so if it crashes, all my fault. Our software is wonderful; it's all my fault.
1:03:30Name for deployment. This is just going to determine the directory name that it creates.
1:03:36MyApp, you know, version 1.0. You can include 32 bit, 64 bit, or both.
1:03:44For Linux, we only have 64 bit, so you must have a 64-bit machine if you're going to run this on Linux.
1:03:52For Windows, you can create a 32-bit app or a 64-bit app.
1:03:59Now we can choose options. You always have to choose Local Server; that's what the Runtime component is.
1:04:07That's what the deployment is.
1:04:09And you can add extra stuff like the Spatial Analyst. Let's say Network in this case, Network Analyst.
1:04:14There are additional deployment options, and these are going to be fully documented when we get to our final release.
1:04:22You know, some of these, it just says, "Additional vector file data format."
1:04:25Well, what is that? I'm not sure, to be honest. I don't know; you don't know…
1:04:30…and we'll have this documented for you in time for final.
1:04:35And different--you know, add the client to be able to direct connect to different ArcSDE databases.
1:04:42Alrighty. Once we say OK, then that configuration is created, and that just saves in some little file.
1:04:50Oh, Gary created a configuration with these options in it.
1:04:54If we say Generate, then it's actually going to generate this for us.
1:05:01I'm going to copy this. We're not actually going to generate this right now.
1:05:06When my machine's running properly, it takes like 10 seconds, 15 seconds.
1:05:10It just copies the local server component to that directory that I chose.
1:05:15Right now, I don't know how long it's going to take because my machine's misbehaving.
1:05:18I think I have some deployments already created that we can show.
1:05:26Yeah. I created one. I wanted to know how big the entire thing is for 64 and 32 bit.
1:05:36Looks like it's about a gig if you include every single thing for both platforms.
1:05:40You should never have to use both platforms.
1:05:44If you think you might run on a 32-bit or 64-bit machine, just use the 32-bit Runtime.
1:05:49If you know that it's going to be a 64-bit machine, you can use the 64 bit.
1:05:57But just to give you an idea of what that looks like, and I goofed around with this one a little bit…
1:06:04…forget these little delete notes on here, but this is what the local server will look like.
1:06:10The number of directories inside bin. You don't even really need to know this as a developer…
1:06:16…but RuntimeLocalServer.exe is the name of the process that it spins up. Okay?
1:06:22So you've got your app. Once you start local server, it starts a new process called RuntimeLocalServer…
1:06:28…which is going to do map packages and GP packages. Alright?
1:06:33So just a very brief tour of how you use the local server.
1:06:39Some of the things Runtime can do include geoprocessing.
1:06:43For example, we have an elevation dataset, we want to calculate the slope, so we run a model.
1:06:52We create the model in ArcMap, ArcGIS Desktop. We run it.
1:06:57The results we can export as a geoprocessing package. Then in Runtime…
1:07:01Oh, by the way, it's got to be 10.1, and when you create your geoprocessing package or your map package…
1:07:08…you have to check the box that says Enable for ArcGIS Runtime.
1:07:12It includes a little additional content in there that lets Runtime use it.
1:07:17Network Analyst. Driving directions, routing, which for all of us, that's pretty basic; our little phones can do that.
1:07:25But things like closest facility, service areas, you know, drive-time rings--the more advanced network analysis stuff…
1:07:34…is also available in Runtime.
1:07:38Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst. Least-cost path based on elevation, vegetation, whatever you want…
1:07:44Raster-based analysis, you can do it.
1:07:483D Analyst, this is a line of sight. So based on elevation, what can I see, what can't I see?
1:07:55Data editing. The same kinds of editing that you can do in ArcMap you can do with Runtime.
1:08:02Once again, ArcGIS Runtime is designed to be simple, it's designed to be fast, and to be effective…
1:08:07…still leverage the full ArcGIS system but be simpler to use.
1:08:12Here's the most complicated piece of machinery ever built, the space shuttle.
1:08:16I like to say ArcGIS Engine and ArcMap are kind of like, you can do everything.
1:08:22It's kind of complicated; I'm probably not being fair by comparing it to the space shuttle.
1:08:28It's a little more complicated than ArcGIS, but still, Engine is like the space shuttle way to develop applications.
1:08:35If you need full control, if you want to write lines of code for every piece of geospatial analysis, then great.
1:08:43However, if you're a coder and you don't want to--even if you're not a coder.
1:08:47You don't want to write code for things that should be done in ArcMap for geospatial analysis.
1:08:54Runtime is more like this beautiful piece of machinery that my 10-year-old built, Pinewood Derby car. He won.
1:09:05It doesn't look very pretty in this case.
1:09:08I'm not saying that Runtime apps can't be pretty, but it's simple. A 10-year-old was able to do it.
1:09:13I don't think my 10-year-old would be able to build a Runtime application, but with a little bit of coaching, I'm sure he could.
1:09:20It did the job. It didn't take him long to build, he didn't have to have a ton of skills to do it, but it worked.
1:09:28And that's how Runtime is. You don't need a whole lot of training to be able to use Runtime.
1:09:33It's very intuitive, very simple to use, yet very effective, very powerful.
1:09:41The hope is that, you know, you can use Runtime to build something a little more sophisticated…
1:09:45…and hopefully a little more pretty as well.
1:09:48Our map controls certainly provide a pleasant user experience.
1:09:54Runtime is cross-platform. It runs on Windows and Linux for the desktop Runtime.
1:09:59And we mentioned before Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
1:10:04Okay, finally, how do you get started with ArcGIS Runtime?
1:10:10If you're not part of the beta program, please go to betacommunity.esri.com.
1:10:16And I'll be honest, I don't know the specific criteria for you to be able to get into beta…
1:10:21…but the point is ArcGIS Runtime is in beta right now.
1:10:25If you want to get your hands on it, you have to part of our 10.1 beta program.
1:10:30Oh, by the way, 10.1/1.0. Once the initial release of Runtime happens, it's going to go onto a rapid release cycle…
1:10:38…just like our web APIs.
1:10:39So you won't have to wait all the way until 10.2 or 11, whatever we call the next release of ArcGIS.
1:10:46You'll get a new Runtime every three to six months.
1:10:51The resource centers; I mentioned these before--resources.arcgis.com.
1:10:55But if you want to learn about Runtime right now, you need resourcesbeta.arcgis.com.
1:11:03If you are in the beta program, you have access to it, then if you go to the Customer Care site and log in…
1:11:10…customers.esri.com, you should be able to download ArcGIS Runtime.
1:11:15If you have trouble with that and you are in the beta program, please contact either your Esri account rep or Esri Customer Service.
1:11:26In short, you can do this. You can learn ArcGIS Runtime.
1:11:29We're providing resources for it; you know, the resource center is a great way to get started.
1:11:35The SDK provides all of that plus more, including samples and tools.
1:11:39And at some point soon, later this year, we're going to have actual classroom training available for ArcGIS Runtime.
1:11:47So if you feel so inclined, you can visit one of our training centers, including the learning center in Tysons Corner…
1:11:52…or any of the ones we have across the country, and take ArcGIS Runtime training.
