Why is the GeoMedia warehouse connection renamed when publishing to a GeoMedia WebMap Publisher service source?
GeoMedia WebMap uses the Connection name to track database connections to allow for caching.
Since GeoMedia assigns a default name for each warehouse connection (E.G. Access Connection 1) there is no need to change the name to be unique. The result being that two different GeoMedia workspaces regularly contain the same Warehouse connection name that pointed to different databases.
When muliple GeoMedia workspaces are published, the Webmap services would fail when trying to access data from a cached connection that has the same name but uses a different database.
To resolve this issue WebMap Publisher renames the Warehouse connection before publishing to the service source so each connection to the database is unique.
