Java find nearby features SOAP SOE

This sample illustrates how to develop a SOAP server object extension (SOE) with a new spatial query method called findNearbyFeatures. This SOAP method takes in a layer Id, a location point (x, y coordinates and spatial reference) and the distance to indicate how wide a net should be cast, and returns a list of all features within that distance.

Deploying the SOE from the .soe file (../findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe/target/findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe.soe) does not require you to open a Java IDE. However, you can open the project (../findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe) in a Java IDE, such as Eclipse or IntelliJ, to debug, modify, and recompile the SOE code.

Features

  • SOAP SOE interface
  • Create SOAP SOE methods
  • Spatial query

Sample data

Any dynamic map service published from ArcGIS Pro. This instruction uses the USA map service as the sample service to test with the SOE.

Instructions

Deploy the SOE

  1. Log in to ArcGIS Server Manager and click the Site tab.
  2. Click Extensions.
  3. Click Add Extension.
  4. Click Choose File and choose the findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe.soe file (../findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe/target/findnearbyfeaturessoapsoe.soe).
  5. Click Add.

Enable the SOE on a map service

  1. Make sure you have published the USA map service using ArcGIS Pro. If not, refer to USA map service
  2. Log in to ArcGIS Server Manager and click the Services tab. Select USA map service and select Capabilities.
  3. In the list of available capabilities, find Java Find Nearby Features SOAP SOE and check the box to enable it.
  4. Click the Save and Restart button to restart the service.

Test the SOE by sending XML requests in SOAP clients

To test the findNearbyFeatures operation, try with this request:

	<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" 
	xmlns:soe="http://www.soe.entsdksamples" 
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
	xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
	xmlns:esri="http://www.esri.com/schemas/ArcGIS/2.6.0">
	   <soapenv:Header/>
	   <soapenv:Body>
	      <soe:findNearbyFeatures>
		 <arg0>0</arg0>
		 <arg1 xsi:type="esri:PointN">
			 <X>-149</X>

		 </arg1>
		 <arg2>1</arg2>
	      </soe:findNearbyFeatures>
	   </soapenv:Body>
	</soapenv:Envelope>

And you should see the following response:
