Table vs Feature Class

Question asked by NavinDSilva on Oct 16, 2014

I am new to writing c# programs for ESRI. My aim is to create a Geodatabase File which contains Feature Datasets and Feature Classes, using the freely available File Geodatabase API 1.3. After initial prodding, I found that the API has interfaces to create Tables and Feature Datasets but no specific interface/function to create Feature classes. After some googling, I have seen code with functions to create Feature Classes, but using Arcobjects which I believe is not freely available. And after inquiries to ESRI Australia, I was given to understand that Tables are Feature Classes.

 

Are Tables really Feature Classes?

What's the best API for C# to create a Feature Dataset and Feature Class?

 

Any help appreciated.
