I have created a web map that displays point features based on a given date range. Our current projection is Oregon State Plane South. My boss wants me to change the map to use a Web Mercator projection. I am loading our web mercator basemap fine, but I'm having trouble projecting and displaying the points. What is the most efficient way of doing this?

The javascript API (as well as flex and silverlight) uses the REST API.

The REST API query operation allows an output spatial reference to be specified.

Thanks! It looks like I asked the question too soon, as I figured it out just after asking it. Hopefully others find it useful. – Tanner May 16 '11 at 22:33
