[gdal-dev] Compiling GDAL with ArcSDE support

1 ArcSDE server-side SDK as GDAL uses it doesn't exist any more. ESRI 
moved all functionality to the client-side (e.g. ArcGIS) when rewriting 
ArcGIS Server to 64-bit. My memory is that was 10.1 but can be 10.2 as 
Johan write

2 You can store OGC-defined geometries in the native DBMS spatial format 
using the applicable SDE DBTUNE geometry storage keyword (for PostGIS: 
    ESRI-specific geometries like text will still be stored in ESRI 
geometry format

3 If storing geometries in any ESRI geometry format like ST_GEOMETRY, 
you need to convert the geometries to something readable by MapServer. 
The most efficient is what I proposed, to use the functions installed by 
ArcGIS Server in the sde database schema

> Dear Johan,
> Good question.
> So let me explain the problem. My organization is using ESRI desktop 
> clients (mainly ArcGIS Desktop) to upload the spatial data to the 
> databases used across the organization and publish it via network 
> services. As DBMSs, we use Oracle and Postgres. We upload the data 
> using Esri clients in versions 10.3.1 or 1.6.1.
> Now I need GDAL to do two things:
> 1. Export the data form these databases to other formats.
> 2.  Use it to connect to MapServer to publish WMS, WFS services 
> straight from databases.
> So after looking through the documentation available online, I thought 
> that using ArcSDE will be the best solution, but maybe there are 
> better alternatives.
