I am working on a viewer in which I would like to show two related feature classes. If I select a feature of the first one, the related features of the second one should be selected too. I found a script on the Esri Resource Center: http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/help/jssamples/fl_query_related.html

My problem is that I can't get the relationship in de Mapserver. We run ArcGIS Server 9.3.1.

I created a "Relationship class" in the database. This relation works fine in ArcMap but when I make a service of it, it disappears. Secondly I created a "Relate" in ArcMap, which worked fine there, but disappeared in the service.

What is the solution to this problem? Is it possible to create a relationship with ArcGIS Server 9.3.1? The example server from the Resource Center uses ArcGIS SErver 10.

For the Esri Web APIs, native support for relates became available at v10.

It would not be impossible to do relates, such as via a JDBC connection, but this would not support any of the geodatabase behaviour like subtypes.
