I installed ArcGIS 10.2 for Server on my localhost and created and published a feature service on it. Now I want to use the feature service I created on a simple html page using Javascript. How can I do that?

I read the resources on arcgis.com but it just described how to do it with the maps on arcgis.com!

I don't need a base map from arcgis.com. actually I want to use the web page offline(just on localhost).

To create a feature layer, you need access to the layer's REST endpoint. This can be on the web, or on your localhost - see The Services Directory and the REST API.

See the Feature Layer help page to get started with creating a feature layer using the ArcGIS Server JS API - the URL you use can point to your local machine.

  • Here is an example in the Esri sandbox, showing how to create a feature layer. Change the URL on line 40 (var featureLayer = new FeatureLayer(...) to point to your local host's ArcGIS Server Sep 7, 2014 at 23:37
