comment Edits in SDE not showing up in AGS GeoData Service
It still sounds like caching me be an issue. The only reason I keep going back to that is that restarting the service "fixes" the issue. I would try resetting the REST cache or restart the IIS service to see if that helps (and if it does, I'd really like to see someone's answer as to how to reset IIS or the cache automatically after edits; I've been resorting to manual resets).

comment why is my findTask Not working correctly? can someone please look at my code and see if I have missed something?
What do you mean by not working correctly? Is it returning bad results, no results when it should, erroring out, etc.? (Also, to fix how the code appears above, select all of it (from your doctype all the way down to your last div) and then click the code button (1's and 0's) above the editor textbox.)

comment How do I export metadata to HTML format via ArcGIS 10?
I'm in the same boat as you, AG10 against SDE 9.3. Thanks for the info.

Very glad to hear that.

comment Can ArcEngine resolve unstructured address data?
@iterationx Ouch. Good to know, though. It provides a reasonable level of comparison if management here ever questions our current costs.

I'm not sure if you're using the REST API to access your data, but have you tried resetting the REST cache to see if that helps?

@George Surgery in the field is never fun.

comment Can ArcEngine resolve unstructured address data?
Google maps is easy to use and updated pretty regularly. I don't remember the details about licensing exactly, but, per this document, as long as you're not charging a fee (and have an iGoogle account, and get a code from them permitting access to the API, and agree to the privacy stipulations), you can use the API free of charge.

comment Do shapefiles sometimes contain the necessary data for address resolution?
So, to actually answer your question, open up the shapefile in ArcMap or the DBF in Excel/Foxpro/dBase and look for those fields that would indicate a street name/number. If you see only numbers in the data, there's probably not enough information in that shapefile for you to do a reverse geocode.

comment Do shapefiles sometimes contain the necessary data for address resolution?
As Brad mentioned in his answer, there are usually additional fields included in the shapefile that indicate further details about the feature, such as the Lmin and Lmax for street numbering. I have only personally worked with street center line layers or parcel layers that included a specific street number and street name (which makes it easy to do a quick SQL query to get the feature id and zoom to that feature), though I imagine there are numerous other methods used to get to a unique location without those details.

@iterationx Then you're probably back to having to parse it yourself. Good luck; it's not a lot of fun, especially dealing with raw data-entry. Perhaps you could "steer" users into entering the data as expected via your interface.

That looks good. It throws each element (e.g. 222, Ashland, etc.) into an array, then shoves those properties into the locator. Certainly better than trying to parse it yourself.

And if that doesn't work, then George is probably going to have to manually edit rows in multiple tables to return things to a normal state, which could require ESRI's assistance.

comment why is a gdb query WHERE clause invalid according to the ArcGIS REST API?
You can create a multi-versioned view if you need to access the data outside the context of ESRI products. The only problem I have with that is that it seems to add several seconds to a query that should take microseconds (so it's a bit slow, but it still works). Again, this would just be a workaround until someone can figure out why you're having this issue.

comment why is a gdb query WHERE clause invalid according to the ArcGIS REST API?
This is pretty bizarre. As a temporary workaround (just so you can continue getting things done), create a column on your table that consists of the 3 left-most characters of ID, then use ISO_LANGUAGE_CODE_ID <> NEWID. Hopefully someone here can come up with an actual solution, but that'll help in the mean time.

comment Running ArcGIS 10 Python script on a unix server - is it possible?
Is this a "properly" license situation, though? If they purchased one license for AGS and install it on Windows, can they then install it on a linux box and authorize it? Never tried it myself, but I have a feeling it's not going to work.

comment slow to draw mapservices after access featureLayers within an ESRI Mapservice using Javaascript API
Does using just one dynamic layer (and no tiled layers) resolve the slowness issue, i.e. is it acceptably faster (don't try the parcel layer with this test; maybe the streets layer). If so, it might be that you're just trying to draw too many things dynamically and will have to resort to using tiled layers. See our published services at breccia.ccrfcd.org/ArcGIS/rest/services for reference.
