ArcGIS 9.3.1 SP 2 released

While part of Esri team was busy developing ArcGIS 10 another part was busy working on issues in 9.3.1 version. Service pack 2 is fixing a number of issues. Exact counts are below.

  • Desktop - 84
  • Engine - 2
  • Server (general) - 6
  • REST - 5
  • Web ADF - 3
  • Java - 2
Here are my picks of important fixes for Desktop.

ArcGIS Desktop

  • NIM014000 - Converting EMF picture marker symbols to representations may result in unexpected jaggedness of outlines and missing interior fill elements.
  • NIM031270 - Selecting cartographic representation with the cartographic representation select tool is significantly slower than selecting with the editor tool and the selection tool.
  • NIM036834 - If you have an exception that has a dirty area crossing it and validate the topology the exception becomes an error.
  • NIM037043 - When a feature is selected, and a reference scale is used, the selected point feature ignores the reference scale.
  • NIM039914 - If a data frame contains one or more polygon layers symbolized with bar graphs, no attributes are included in the PDF export, even with the export option 'Export PDF Layers and Feature Attributes' selected.
  • NIM041239 - Stopping the trace tool at the beginning of a true curve adds a circle to the sketch.
  • NIM042869 - Using Near tool with default search tolerance gets incorrect results, as not all input features can find the distance to the near feature.
  • NIM043178 - ArcMap crashes when reconciling and memory increases to almost 2GB (virtual bytes).
  • NIM047109 - Spatial join in SDE geodatabase does not return any rows.
  • NIM048174 - Reconciling an edited attributed relationship table, in favor of edit version, fails with error message when related feature has been deleted in the target version.
  • NIM050124 - Intersecting Layers Mask GP tool fails to produce proper masking polygons in 9.3.1.
  • NIM051339 - Conversion of character markers into representation markers results in the TOC display of the marker at 75-80% of expected size.
  • NIM052264 - Feature Outline Masks tool crashes when running against lines or polygons symbolized without representations.
  • NIM052349 - Joined attributes are no longer visible in the Identify window if one of the layers is using Representations.
  • NIM052365 - Relationship classes created between double data types in a File Geodatabase return inconsistent results when performing queries.
  • NIM053271 - ArcGIS Globe Memory Leakage when adding graphics. Memory never releases.
  • NIM054377 - Hash line symbols have inconsistent spacing compared to cartographic line symbols.
  • NIM054416 - Features in conflict do not draw in the Conflict Detection window if layer is drawn with representations and you are not the data owner.
  • NIM055237 - Calculate Locations geoprocessing tool does not honor the parameter values for the location fields when run from a python script.
  • NIM056157 - After exporting the shapefile to a personal geodatabase feature class, the value for the geometry's grid is not correctly calculated; this results in the features disappearing in random map scales.
  • NIM056289 - Reconcile fails with the error, "Feature is deleted. The operation was attempted on an empty geometry."
  • NIM056710 - Memory leak in the in-memory feature class.

ArcGIS Server general fixes

  • NIM036787 - WMS enabled map service is a little shifted (a pixel or two) against the original data when both are added into ArcMap. The shift is not present if WMS capability is not enabled for the map service. - Informix Direct Connect does not work for Linux ArcGIS Server.
  • NIM049389 - ArcGIS Server WMS Service layer in ArcMap does not render at the scale range set in the .mxd.
  • NIM050650 - Python Object ARCSDESQLEXECUTE returns encoded output when used on Solaris with ArcGIS Server.
  • NIM051258 - Java applications connecting to ArcGIS Server through local connections (DCOM) are disconnected from the server after a 10-minute time out period.
  • NIM052700 - Korean fonts do not allow ArcGIS Server Services .Net to start on Windows 2003 Korean edition.
  • NIM056870 - 9.3 Image service WMS doesn't support XML format for exceptions and will return an error if accessed using ArcGIS 10 as client.

REST API fixes

  • NIM042583 - REST Query Layer and KML Server requests do not return valid KML if the layers in the map document used to create the service have a geometry field named something other than SHAPE.
  • NIM052721 - Update Java REST API in 9.3.1 SP2 to not generate ETags by default for tiles fetched from cached map services.
  • NIM052853 - Round-robin or failover does not work as expected in the Java REST handler.
  • NIM053837 - In the .Net REST handler the REST URL response grows with every page refresh when using the Sitemap parameter.
  • NIM054974 - In the .Net REST handler the MapService Query operation fails when SHAPE field is included in the list of outfields and returngeometry is also set to true.


  • NIM049896 - The ArcIMS TCPConnection crashes the IIS Application pool if the first initial connection fails.
  • NIM051455 - Floating panel and task dialogs move unexpectedly when touching the left or right edge of the browser when using DIR=RTL mode applications in IE6 and IE7.
  • NIM054547 - Transparency in a Web application is not honored for PNG32 image type when the service is an MXD-based dynamic map service.

ArcGIS Mobile

  • NIM039695 - GPS cursor doesn't point correct direction after rotating map in ArcGIS Mobile application

Java manager

  • NIM049466 - Exported WebService Handler throws error when accessing WSDL through URL on WebSphere v7.
  • NIM052355 - SOAP requests returning non-English characters including map identify with Arabic characters do not work with some clients such as Microsoft Visual Studio.
