the activities in its definition and displays the result.
For example, the built-in
Overlay workflow connects to the specified data stores, performs
the overlay, and displays the resulting layers in your map. The
overlay itself is saved as a Display Manager layer
and as a separate SDF file in the location specified in the workflow.
The connections appear in Map Explorer and
in the Data Connect window.
