[postgis-users] ArcGIS/ArcView client to the PostGIS?

Hi Abe,

The people I work with are very interested in this project since part of the
selling of this to the rest of the departments is getting it to work with
ArcGIS.  I started trying to compile your project, but unfortunately ran
into problems with trying to get the ArcGIS objects dependency dlls.

I'm not new to .NET, but haven't done anything with ArcObjects and I was
trying to find the dlls on the ArcMap 9.1 cd we have but couldn't find it
there.  Hopefully we can be of some help if not at least trying to test it
with ArcGIS 9.1.

Someone here said there is an extra kit we may need to get the ESRI
dependency files which we may not have, but they weren't sure.  So where do
we get the ESRI dependency files or does that require an extra developer
purchase from ESRI?

Thanks for your interest in zigGIS.  I'm doing my best to get an easily
built system going.  I'm using Nant, which I'm new to, and also am very busy
in my professional life.  So please bare with me.  I expect I'll have a
notable update within a week or so.

My first goal is polishing up the read-only aspect of zigGIS.  After that we
can all work together for a decent writable piece.  Even if we can't get
editing working natively within ArcGIS (I've banged my head a lot to this
end), we can always take a similar approach as pgArc.

I need all the help I can get, so if you can volunteer your time I would be
greatly appreciated.  Mostly we need programmers.  Contact me directly if
you're interested.

At the very least you might want to sign up to the devel list.

As far as Java and other languages go, this *IS* .Net and you can code in
pretty much any language you wish to of course; including Java. 
The main caveat, however, is that code in different languages must be in
different assemblies.  E.g. - design overhead.  With this said though, I'd
like to see everything stay in C#.  C# is very similar to Java and it
shouldn't take too long for a brain shift.

Thanks again for your interest.
