Usage requirements
As described in the previous sections, Activate and Deactivate procedures run only on behalf of connections in the unbound state. If a remote procedure request executes over a bound connection and the connection becomes unbound during execution of this procedure, the Deactivate procedure runs when the request completes with or without error.
Note that both the Activate and Deactivate procedures are optional. There is no requirement to specify either or both of them. Additionally, the content of these procedures is completely application specific, and the AppServer architecture places no constraints on it. Any ABL logic that is valid within an AppServer agent is valid for these procedures.
