When processing is finished, there are certain end-of-processing activities which must be performed by tableBASE.
Under MVS batch, when tableBASE detects a normal return to the operating system signifying end-of-processing, it will automatically ensure that end-of-processing activities are executed. These activities include:
- closing tableBASE libraries that are opened
- optionally producing a tableSPACE Report showing the statistics accumulated since the last strobe, or since the job was initiated if a full strobe interval has not elapsed.
If the system abends, tableBASE may not be able to perform normal termination processing.
