In Openlayers v2 I could get a map from an ESRI server that was not a cached service using code similar to below

var arcims = new OpenLayers.Layer.ArcGIS93Rest("MyName",
        layers: "0,1,2"

How do you do the same using Openlayers v3 I can't same to find the right function in ol.source


The ArcGIS REST API hasn't been included in the OpenLayers 3 code yet. People are discussing its importance and it is expected to have an implementation in a later version. Until then, you can try to stack with an ArcGIS WMS server or use OpenLayers 2.

OpenLayers 3 WMS example: http://jsfiddle.net/GFarkas/tr0s6uno/


map = new ol.Map({
    target: 'map',
    layers: [
    new ol.layer.Tile({
        source: new ol.source.TileWMS({ 
            url: "http://sampleserver1.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/services/Specialty/ESRI_StateCityHighway_USA/MapServer/WMSServer",
    view: new ol.View({
        center: [-115, 45],
        zoom: 0

OpenLayers-3.9.0 adds support for ArcGIS Rest Services via the ol.source.TileArcGISRest (source pull request). TileArcGISRest Example

OpenLayers-3.16.0 introduced ol.source.ImageArcGISRest to serve a single static image (source pull request). ImageArcGisRest Example
