How to set and reset an export list for each operating mode
Each AppServer operating mode requires a different arrangement for setting and resetting the published entry points during an AppServer session:
* State-reset operating mode — You can set an export list any time before a client application uses them; you never need to reset your export list from one connection to the next.
* State-aware operating mode — You can set an export list any time before a client application uses them; if you set them in remote procedures, you probably want to reset them with each connection.
* Stateless operating mode — You can set an export list any time before a client application uses them; you generally set them in the Startup procedure for the entire AppServer session. You can also set them with a finer degree of session granularity, but you must exercise caution when doing so.
* State-free operating mode — You can most practically set an export list only in the Startup procedure for the entire AppServer session. You can also set them with a finer degree of session granularity, but you must exercise caution and consider the connectionless nature of state-free remote requests when doing so.
