Since this is a command-line application, you can use Ant to run it, you can execute its Java Archive (JAR) file from the command line, or you can use your integrated development environment (IDE) to compile and run it. As with all other samples, this application requires no arguments to run.
  2. This application consumes a source shapefile and prints the shapefile's feature class information, including dataset name, feature type, geometry type, and field metadata.
