I have one very simple workbench that I am running against both SDE (9.3) and FGDB (10.0) sources.

I noticed two different fme_geometry values for same type of objects.

For the first one, i.e SDE 9.3, I have fme_geometry=fme_donut, but for the same features in FGDB 10.0 I have fme_geometry=fme_aggregate.

Is this a "problem" of converting ESRI data from 9.3 to 10.0 or how FME interprets geometry?

Because in case of fme_aggregate, FME is doing "additional" job of constructing donuts again:

Calculating inside points
Determining uppermost containment
Constructing donuts from xxx points

An fme_aggregate is equivalent to a multi-part polygon. Are you sure that the features you are comparing are actually the same in this respect (it would seem that one is multi-part and the other is not). –  blah238 Jan 14 '13 at 8:16
    
Also I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but you will probably get more focused answers on the FME Community Answers site than here. –  blah238 Jan 14 '13 at 8:35
    
ok, you have right blah238! –  Z77 Jan 14 '13 at 9:23
    
Anyone here? I asked this question FME Community also. –  Z77 Jan 15 '13 at 7:49
    
FME can transform your information from SDE to FGDB for compatibility. Example: I think the scale or the tolerance of ArcSDE are not the same in FGDB. –  user3120 Feb 13 '13 at 15:34
