The File Geodatabase API 1.5 is now available for download from GitHub https://github.com/Esri/file-geodatabase-api/tree/master/FileGDB_API_1.5. The FileGDB 1.5 release is primarily a maintenance release with the addition of  a few new compilers and platforms.

 

What’s new at 1.5:

    • MS Visual Studio 2015 support.
    • Allow the use of the Spatial Reference ID to create the spatial reference (BUG-000100781)
    • Support for new operating system versions:

Linux:

     Red Hat

     SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

     Ubuntu

Windows:

     Windows 8.1

     Windows 10.0

MacOS

     Yosemite (10.10)

     El Capitan (10.11)

     Sierra (10.12)

 

Released under the Apache license.

 

Fixed Issues:

BUG-000100782 File Geodatabase: COUNT(0) should return 0 with a WHERE clause that returns no rows (1=0).

BUG-000100783 Remove Windows FileGDBAPI.dll's reliance on Microsoft.VC90.CRT.

BUG-000088293 FileGDB API throws -2147217395 error when executing SQL query with SQL functions.

BUG-000097116 Table::FreeWriteLock does not clear the lock.

The link to the 1.5 version above returns "Not found". I believe the correct link is file-geodatabase-api/FileGDB_API_1.5 at master · Esri/file-geodatabase-api · GitHub . 

Regular Contributor

Corrected the link in the blog post. Thank you Bryan for pointing this out.

Any chance you could update the .h files so that they don't define EXT_FILEGDB_API if it is already defined? Adding the first and last lines in bold below does the trick.

#ifndef EXT_FILEGDB_API

#  ifndef EXPORT_FILEGDB_API

#   if defined __linux__ || defined __APPLE__

#    define EXT_FILEGDB_API

#   else

#    define EXT_FILEGDB_API _declspec(dllimport)

#   endif

#  else

#   if defined __linux__ || defined __APPLE__

#    define EXT_FILEGDB_API __attribute__((visibility("default")))

#   else

#    define EXT_FILEGDB_API _declspec(dllexport)

#   endif

#  endif

#endif

Also I notice the copyright information in the header files is not the same license (Apache 2) as the zip packages that contain the header files on github.com.

do you have any instructions for n00bz on how to get this running in ubuntu?  I followed the readme in the API and "making" just resulted in a bunch of errors like

../../lib/libFileGDBAPI.so: undefined reference to `_wtoi64(wchar_t const*)'
../../lib/libFileGDBAPI.so: undefined reference to `CLSID_FIDSet'

Hello, 

I am new to this forum and to Esri framework.

We need to generate a Geodatabase file within a Java application.

I downloaded the FileGDB_API-64 archive (we are on Linux) and have been trying to build samples for quite some time. Initially, it would not build because of a compiler error - had gcc 7. Tried different versions. 4.0 was too old, 7 - too new. Finally tried with 5.5, and the variable declaration errors went away. 

Now, I am getting the following:

/usr/bin/ld: warning: libfgdbunixrtl.so, needed by ../../lib/libFileGDBAPI.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-li
nk)
/usr/bin/ld: ./GeodatabaseManagement.o: undefined reference to symbol '_ZNSt8ios_base4InitD1Ev@@GLIBCXX_3.4'

The warning is not legitimate - the library is where the compiler is looking for it. But the error appears to be an internal deficiency.

Can anybody provide some guidance/advice on how I can create a Geodatabase file (file on the file system, not database) within a Java application?

Thank you in advance.

Regular Contributor

Have they tried the 1.5.1 release?

Lance

New Contributor

Yes, we have. And could not find functionality that would create

Geodatabase file.

Regular Contributor

To create a geodatabase see

FileGDB_API\samples\GeodatabaseManagement\GeodatabaseManagement.cpp

// Create a new geodatabase in the current directory.
fgdbError hr;
wstring errorText;
Geodatabase geodatabase;
if ((hr = CreateGeodatabase(L"../GeodatabaseManagement/GdbManagement.gdb", geodatabase)) != S_OK)
{
wcout << "An error occurred while creating the geodatabase." << endl;
ErrorInfo::GetErrorDescription(hr, errorText);
wcout << errorText << "(" << hr << ")." << endl;
return -1;
}

This is a C++ example. We don't have a Java interface.

Hi Lance,

Thank you very much for your help!

I did look at that code, using JNI is an option.

Two questions:

1. It creates Geodatabase file but does not show how to populate it with

data

2. It does not build (under Linux):

make

g++ -fPIC -O3 -m64 -W -fexceptions -D_CONSOLE -DUNICODE -D_UNICODE -DUNIX

-D_REENTRANT -DFILEGDB_API -D__USE_FILE_OFFSET64 -DUNIX_FILEGDB_API -D_FI

LE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -I../../include -I. -m64

-L../../lib -o ../bin/GeodatabaseManagement ./GeodatabaseManagement.o

-lFileGDBAPI

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lFileGDBAPI

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

Makefile:27: recipe for target '../bin/GeodatabaseManagement' failed

make: *** Error 1

Again, I appreciate your help.

FileGDB_API\samples\ShapeBuffer\ShapeBuffer.cpp provides examples of reading and writing geometries.

FileGDB_API\samples\Editing\Editing.cpp provides examples of editing existing data and search.  

New Contributor

Great!

Except that build fails with the same error:

make

g++ -fPIC -O3 -m64 -W -fexceptions -D_CONSOLE -DUNICODE -D_UNICODE -DUNIX

-D_REENTRANT -DFILEGDB_API -D__USE_FILE_OFFSET64 -DUNIX_FILEGDB_API -D_FI

-D_REENTRANT -DFILEGDB_API -D__USE_FILE_OFFSET64 -DUNIX_FILEGDB_API -D_FI

The undefined symbol '_ZNSt8ios_base4InitD1Ev@@GLIBCXX_3.4' was reported by several people. They got this when using gcc instead of g++ as their C++ compiler so your CC/CXX vars should either be unset or set to:

CC=gcc
CXX=g++

This would be the ideal setup if we were recommending one:

OS: Ubuntu 18.04
File GDB API Package: https://github.com/Esri/file-geodatabase-api/blob/master/FileGDB_API_1.5/FileGDB_API_1_5_64gcc51.tar...
Compiler: GCC 7.3.0


Steps:
• Run ‘which g++’ and ‘g++ --version’ to make sure you’re picking up the right compiler.


• Unpack FileGDB_API_1_5_64gcc51.tar.gz from your $HOME so $HOME/FileGDB_API-64gcc51 is created.

• cd to $HOME/FileGDB_API-64gcc51/lib and add that folder to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH

$ cd $HOME/FileGDB_API-64gcc51/lib

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${PWD}:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}

• Go to the sample folder and build it:

$ cd $HOME/FileGDB_API-64gcc51/samples/GeodatabaseManagement

$ make clean all
rm -f -v ./GeodatabaseManagement.o ../bin/GeodatabaseManagement
g++ -fPIC -O3 -m64 -W -fexceptions -D_CONSOLE -DUNICODE -D_UNICODE -DUNIX -D_REENTRANT -DFILEGDB_API -D__USE_FILE_OFFSET64 -DUNIX_FILEGDB_API -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -I../../include -I. -c GeodatabaseManagement.cpp
g++ -fPIC -O3 -m64 -W -fexceptions -D_CONSOLE -DUNICODE -D_UNICODE -DUNIX -D_REENTRANT -DFILEGDB_API -D__USE_FILE_OFFSET64 -DUNIX_FILEGDB_API -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -I../../include -I. -m64 -L../../lib -o ../bin/GeodatabaseManagement ./GeodatabaseManagement.o –lFileGDBAPI

• Run it:

$ cd ../bin/
$ ./GeodatabaseManagement
The geodatabase has been created.
The geodatabase has been opened.
The geodatabase has been deleted.

Bless your heart!!!

Will get to it first thing in the morning.

Can you supply us with:

It looks like you are using the MacOS version of the API. Use: 

    https://github.com/Esri/file-geodatabase-api/blob/master/FileGDB_API_1.5/FileGDB_API_1_5_64gcc51.tar...

 

We need to go to better names at 1.6.

Great, it did build!

I am also looking at runtime samples, I have GIS Runtime Server installed

but I can't find any instructions on how to run/use it.

The GeodatabaseSyncTask syncTask = new

GeodatabaseSyncTask(featureServiceURL);

call in GenerateGeodatabaseSample class

(com.esri.samples.featurelayers.generate_geodatabase package) requires

String featureServiceURL parameter.

I can assume this is the URL of something running/residing on that runtime

server but I can't find any details on how to use it.

Again, thank you for your help!

Lance, has anyone developed a Python wrapper for ESRI's FileGDBAPI.dll?

I've experimented with the open source version of FileGDB dll available through the OGR library in Python and was able to successfully read and export object metadata in XML format from the GDB_Items table.

However I also need to be able to write metadata changes back to the GDB_Items table which requires the ESRI version of the DLL.
