Has anyone worked with ArcGIS server, when the data is stored in SDE with ArcFM?

While researching this Issue for a friend, I found out that ArcFM Server would be needed. What is not clear, is if a Map can be published, and consumed via Flex or Silverlight API.

Has anyone successfully done something like this? Any pointers would be gladly appreciated.

Yes, when you have a map referencing data registered with ArcFM (i.e. converted to ArcFM objects), you can publish a map service provided you also have the ArcFM Server installed.

Once a service is successfully published, you can access it via REST and SOAP APIs just like any other plain service.

I would love to take your word for it, but the person who asked me would be more satisfied with some link or sample ect to show to his boss. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 13 '10 at 16:54 > it works – Mapperz Dec 13 '10 at 17:02
Well if you want something more trustworthy, ask Telvent directly, I am sure they will be able to reply promptly. It can't get any more official than their statement. – Petr Krebs Dec 13 '10 at 22:34

You can access data in a read-only fashion using the ArcFM Object Reader, which is a free download on our website. Editing ArcFM data requires an ArcFM Server license. This ensures that business rule logic (i.e. autoupdaters) execute and data integrity is maintained.

I want read only access, but via the REST end-point, since i want to use it in a flex app. Is that possible. – Devdatta Tengshe Dec 13 '10 at 18:02
