What are the naming conventions that are allowed / supported in GeoMedia Desktop applicatonsl for feature names and attribute fields?
GeoMedia Object Identifiers (GDO) must: 1. Contain only letters, numbers, and underscores 2. Begin with a letter
GDO has no notion of a view (vs. a table). Some data servers (most of the read-only ones) map identifiers found in their native data store, to something that is GDO compatible. Others (most of the read-write ones) do not, requiring that the user do so.
As for read-write feature stores, you will need to comply to the rules levied by the database type. The reserved key words for Oracle can differ from those used by MS SQL for example.
You should also pay attention to words that are reserved by GeoMedia s well as by the database you are trying to connect to. The words in the following list are the keywords in SQL Parser. They are considered GeoMedia Keywords. As such, they cannot be used in table or column names or anywhere else in a given warehouse. They can only be used as part of SQL queries.
