public class DuplicateMetadataObjectException : MetadataException

This metadata store exception can be thrown when objects that are loaded from the metadata store have the same name, despite belonging to different data classes. For example, two methods from different data classes have the same Name field value. When instances of these methods are validated, the DuplicateMetadataObjectException exception is thrown. After the objects are cached, validation is not performed again.
