Messages in background processing
In background processingall
messages with the following exception are handled according to the type specified in the
Only during list processingis a message of type "W" converted into a message of type "E" before the actual processing.
A message is not displayed, but instead is written as follows to the background processing log (Joblog) depending on the message type:
- Messages of type "S" are written to the log and the program is continued.
- Messages of type "I" and "W" are written to the log and the program is continued. The user input Enter, which is required to continue the program, is generated automatically.
- Messages of type "E" and "A" are written to the log. A check is then performed and if applicable,
the message is handled with
error_message. If this is not the case, the message is also written to the log with message number 564 of the message class 00 and current background processing is interrupted, whereby a message of type "A" executes a database rollback. When the message is processed, background processing is continued.
- Messages of type "X" generate a runtime error with associated database rollback and the current background processing is canceled.
Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54
For messages of type "A", remember that handling with
error_message causes the statement
ROLLBACK WORK to be executed implicitly, and hence a database rollback and further side-effects.
