Sorry for a novice question.  But I'm in desperate need of help and my local programmers don't have experience mapping.  I'd like to create a choropleth map with ARCGIS Java API, your templates will do nicely (ie  I should add that I'm picking up a range from a excel web services which is interactive (range is based on a filter that users can toggle). 
My only problem that I know of, at least with regards to this particular issue is that I don't see in any of the samples anyway to aggregate my data range information into a shapefile, say state/county/zip.  I imagine there are a few different ways of doing this, I don;t see any examples.  And, as you may tell I am a novice at anything beyond VBA. Any pointers?
