Hi Maksim,

In this case, you'll also run into problems from Map and MapGuide access
because they both include unmanaged references to the FDO api.

Yes, Map currently does not support all capabilities from FDO - these
are works in progress.

Hi Orest,

I was thinking of using .NET. I'll explain my intentions a bit more in
detail... it's actually about writing FDO provider for Autodesk DWG. I
already did something similar using my own meta-model, but "porting" it
FDO would be, I guess, interesting thing to see. Autodesk Map 3D
lacks support for certain FDO types (e.g. associations, object data
properties) which is truly pitty since DWG, as it is, makes the whole

It's also very challenging at the same time, since I cannot rely on DWG
as a container to entities. Mechanism should be able to support Cloning
DeepCloning opreations, even to and from different databases (DWGs),
just as
AutoCAD originally does.
