Question

How does ArcIMS work with constrained layers in an ArcSDE for Coverages database?

Answer

With an ArcSDE for Coverages constrained layer, you supply a where clause to restrict the records available in that layer, for example, if you have a World layer and supply "Curr_type lk ‘*Dollar*’", you will have a resulting layer of all countries that use Dollar for their currency.

The Find tool (in the ArcIMS Viewers and ArcExplorer—Java edition) does not recognize a constrained layer and instead returns results from the entire layer.
