What is a 'region tag'?

20 Views

We just upgraded to the first service pack for MDM 5.5, and I'm starting to write some Java to play with the repository. There appears to be a CatalogData.Login method that let's you specify a min/max number of pooled connections - very handy! However, there's an additional parameter called a 'region tag'. Does anyone know what this is?

The API documentation is woefully inadequate in this respect. Calling a parameter a 'region tag', and then indicating in the documention that a region tag is the region tag to use for the repository isn't that useful.

Specifying a blank region tag generates this exception:

a2i.core.StringException: No matching region tag

at a2i.common.CatalogData.LoadCatalogData(Unknown Source)

at a2i.common.CatalogData.Login(Unknown Source)

at com.xxx.dw.mdm.utils.ConnectionPool.getConnection(ConnectionPool.java:59)

Error code: 0x80000001 at com.xxx.dw.mdm.utils.Test.run(Test.java:26)

at com.xxx.dw.mdm.utils.Test.main(Test.java:21)

Error message : No message for RC (0x80000001)

So: what's a region tag?
