I just wanted to verify that Robert Scheitlin's Route Widget requires the Network Analyst extension? If so, can anyone point to an alternative simple route option (directions point A to point B)?

Sheri,

   If you use the default services provided in the RouteWidget.xml

    <routetasksolver>http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/NetworkAnalysis/ESRI_Route_NA/NAServer/Route</routetasksolver>     <reversegeocode>http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Locators/TA_Address_NA_10/GeocodeServer</reversegeocode>     <singlelinegeocode>http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Locators/TA_Address_NA_10/GeocodeServer</singlelinegeocode>


Then you will not need anything on your part. But as Anthony mentioned if you what to use your own street data that is geocoded and has m values them you will have to publish your own route service and that requires Network analyst server extension.

Sheri,

The widget is configured to work against a ArcGIS Server network analyst route service which does require the network extension if you want to publish your own network. You can find sample networks on the esri server using the following URL:

Hy,
I have a widget which is using a custom SOE.

Just drop me a private message if you are interested.

Thanks Anthony and Tom. If I use another published network (if that's possible?), can the requirement for Network Analyst be circumvented? Of course I'd rather us my local street data (much more accurate), but if ESRI has an alternative using it's street data then I'd opt for this in the short-term.
