Hi All,

Thank your or your time in advanced. I have a question if we could publish the map service by the source data  by athe shapefiles (the shapefiles are in the Registered Folders). I was told that the source data should be referenced from feature classes in the GDB. Could I know why I need to use feature classes in GDB not shapefiles.
