How To: Add support for Hebrew labeling in the ArcIMS Spatial Server
ArcIMS 9.3 is no longer needed to add "usebidi" attribute to the aimsserver.cfg file to support bidirectional labelling.
At ArcIMS 9.0, support for Hebrew labeling has been added to the Spatial Server.
Instructions provided describe the process for ArcIMS sites that need to support Hebrew. These sites must add an attribute to the aimsserver.cfg file.
ArcIMS Spatial Server configuration files are stored in the following locations:
<ArcIMS Installation Directory>\ArcIMS\Server\etc directory
In UNIX and Linux:
- In one of the above mentioned locations based on the platform ArcIMS Spatial Server is installed, open the aimmserver.cfg file in a text editor.
- Add the attribute "usebidi" and set the value to "true" as follows:
- Repeat this procedure on each machine with a Spatial Server.
- For the changes to take effect, ArcIMS services/daemons must be stopped and started.
a. Stop the ArcIMS Monitor service/daemon on each machine.
b. Stop and start the ArcIMS Application Server service/daemon.
c. Start ArcIMS Monitor service/daemon on each machine.
