DB2 checkpoint-restart doubts

Post by NiceGuy » Tue Oct 23, 2007 4:06 am

Could someone please explain the concept of DB2 checkpoint-restart? I understand it is so the program can be started again at the point it abended without loosing any data, but I don?t understand how to use this in my program. Can someone please explain in simple terms?

Thank you,
