ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java

Update Attributes

Demonstrates how update the attributes of a Feature from a ServiceFeatureTable.

How it works

To get Features from a ServiceFeatureTable and update its attributes:

  1. Create a service feature table from a URL.
  2. Create a FeatureLayer from the service feature table.
  3. Select features from the feature layer, FeatureLayer.selectFeatures.
  4. To update the feature's attribute use the ArcGISFeature.getAttributes().put().
  5. After a change, apply the changes on the server using ServiceFeatureTable.applyEditsAsync().
