    [Some time in 2008] In the [http://events.esri.com/uc/QandA/index.cfm?ConferenceID=51AD3E9D-D566-ED85-AEE0DBF4F59C45FD Q&A from the 2007 ESRI User Conference] Jack Dangermond said that an API for accessing file geodabases will be published after ArcGIS 9.3 is released. This means at least 6 months from now, more likely 12 in my opinion (so winter 2009). I asked ESRI Canada for more information. This is their response:

    > "There is in fact a NIM number for the enhancement request to provide open API to allow access to File Geodatabase data without ArcObjects? . For your records, the number for this enhancement is NIM010509. As of right now, there is no planned fix specified for this enhancement request, but you can use the tracking number I gave to you to see any advancements that have been made for this issue. "

    ...

     [Spring 2010] Anybody who has been following this story will be able to tell you my pessimisstic 1 year estimate above was atcually over-optimistic, make that very over-optimistic. At the local ESRI-UC last month I asked again about this and was told by ESRI Canada that yes the API is still coming, perhaps this fall, and no, they still don't know if it will be license free or if developers who want to use it will be tied to some sort of arcgis runtime. Furthermore it is also likely to be C++ onlyWebForm  TopicCategory . This does not look promising for those of us who want to share data freely with all types of GIS users and not suffer the limitations of shapefiles. Maybe it's time to take a deeper look at Shapefile 2.0EsriFeedback  .
