I'm brand new to ArcGIS and have only a year or two of programming experience. I know Java and a little C#. I have a Java app that processes geographical data. I need to have a button in ArcMap that, when you click it, sends map data to this Java app.
This task was already implemented in VBA; it's my job to translate it to something else since VBA is no longer supported in ArcGIS. Any thoughts on how to accomplish this? I'm not sure where to begin. I'm guessing either using the embedded Python console or the ArcObjects SDK for Java or .NET. Just want to see what someone with experience would recommend. Thank you.
