The Init, Fini, and Boot Methods

These are one time action methods as defined by the Resource Management API specifications. The sample implementation included with the DSDL does not illustrate the use of these methods. However, all the facilities in the DSDL are available to these methods as well, should a resource type developer have a need for these methods. Typically, the Init and the Boot methods would be exactly the same for a resource type implementation to implement a one time action. The Fini method typically would perform an action which undoes the action of the Init or Boot methods.
