This sample demonstrates a simple Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for exposing buffering functionality to different client applications based on a centralized geodatabase server via ArcGIS Server. Client applications include ArcMap and ArcGIS Explorer. Images contained in the README file illustrate this sample and how the same architecture could be extended to other clients, i.e. mobile and web.
