I can load a shapefile to My Content. I can access that shapefile in my webmap if I used the canned webmap template. But how can I access it from my own ArcGIS API for Javascript file? I don't have the ability to create a service of this particular file.

Any other suggestions for alternatives for how to access my content that is not a service?
