Can the newly added features be exported as a new layer?

Hi,

I was exploring the JavaScript API samples and hoped to find an application in which the user can draw directly on the interface, and the result of such drawing can be saved as a new map layer. This new map layer then can be exported and overlaid on other layers. Is it possible to do so in the ArcGIS server environment?

I saw that the Editing function within the sample page of JavaScript seems to be closest to what I was thinking about (http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/help/jssamples_start.htm#jssamples/ed_selectionmode.html). Within the live sample site, the user can easily create new features and edit their attributes. Yet, I am not certain if these new features can be saved as a new layer and added to other application, say, ArcGIS desktop... Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Wen
