      Changing the VDB file name using the Refactor menu now will also change the name of the VDB in the manifest file used by the Teiid server.


      Built a vdb (LookbackTest), but the name was not the one I wanted. Refactored the vdb (to Loopback) with the expectation that was the name I should see the server exposing it as. However, it only changed the name of the file, not the reference name. In designer, looking at the vdbs on the server, the old name (LoopbackTest) was still there and when I unzipped the vdb, LoopbackTest was the name in the vdb.xml.

      In designer, the properties that were show when the vdb was selected, had no way to change the "name" of the vdb. It referred to the name as "Loopback.vdb", which is the filename, not the reference name. Additonally, this "name" property was not updatable. So its confusing as to how to name the vdb or change its name that I want to use when connecting via jdbc.
