Our client runs a ArcGIS for Server 10.2 instance that we are required to connect to and pull feature data as Java objects from. All the documentation I have read points to using the ArcObjects API with which you could create a GISServerConnection instance to connect to the relevant server.
All I see on the developer site now are downloads for ArcGIS Runtime Java SDK. After installing that SDK, there is no hint of the ArcObjects.jar library (as per online discussions), nor are the relevant com.esri.arcgis.server.* packages available in any of the available jars, as far as I can see.
Has the entire ArcObjects API been depricated and removed by ESRI? Is there a new way I should be connecting to an ArcGIS Server?
All help greatly appreciated.
