FairCom DB can be configured to disallow server shutdown attempts made by external c-tree clients. (The term “external clients” refers to clients that communicate with the server through the server's communication subsystem.)
When this option is specified, attempts by external clients to shut down FairCom DB fail with error XSHT_ERR (792). This feature is most useful when FairCom DB is loaded as a DLL or shared library into an application server process. While external clients are prevented from shutting down the process, the application server process can shut down the FairCom DB subsystem by calling the ctThrdTerm() c-tree API function.
