Managing Resources

A COBOL application providing a service that uses external resources, such as databases and files, can manage its own resources or let the application container manage them. A service that manages its own resources is known as application-managed, while a service that does not manage its own resources is known as container-managed.

If a service updates files through Fileshare, you must specify the name and location of an fhredir.cfg file for the enterprise server in which the service runs.
