ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java

Service Feature Table No Cache

Demonstrates how to use a feature service in an on-interaction-no-cache mode.

On-interaction-no-cache mode will always fetch Features from the server and doesn't cache any Features on the client's side. This meaning that Features will be fetched whenever the ArcGISMap pans, zooms, selects, or queries

How it works

How to set FeatureRequestMode.ON_INTERACTION_NO_CAHCE mode:

  1. Create a ServiceFeatureTable from a URL.
  2. Set request mode of table, ServiceFeatureTable.setFeatureRequestMode(FeatureRequestMode.ON_INTERACTION_NO_CAHCE).
