Description

Introduction

ESRI® announces the ArcGIS Server 9.3 for the Microsoft .Net Framework REST API Performance and Functionality Patch. This patch includes two performance fixes. The first fix improves performance when accessing map tiles on a secure ArcGIS Server. The second fix adds the ability to turn off impersonation and allow REST Service to use a separate application pool with fixed identity. To learn more about using a separate application pool with fixed identity to improve performance, refer to Technical Article 32620 (Server 2003) and Technical Article 32622 (XP). This patch also addresses two functional issues, one to address an error when working with Geocode service locators that do not contain an intersection and another to enable Geoprocessing services that use a MapService to display the correct output result. The specific issues addressed in this patch are listed below.
